Univeristy of Alabama Will Hold Gay Conference
Opponents of the Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual College Conference of the Southeastern United States had attempted to stop the upcoming conference from being held at the University of Alabama. However, a US District Judge rejected their claims that it was illegal for a taxpayer-funded school to support such a conference. The school had stood behind the conference based on free-speech grounds.
