Rally against hate, homophobia draws 1,000

Amid chanting and honking horns, a little girl tottered along Fourth Avenue carrying a crayon-lettered sign stating, „God loves all her children.š The child was one of the 1,000 people Tucson Police estimated marched along the North Fourth Avenue business district yesterday in response to last Sunday‚s stabbing of a gay UA student. The march, followed by a speak-out at the University of Arizona Mall, was orchestrated by UA assistant English professor David Robinson, the local chapter of the Lesbian Avengers gay rights organization and several other activists.

Editorial: Successful march shows social awareness
[news] Our community ought to be proud. When masses of people stood up in support of a worthy cause as they did in Sunday's march against hate, UA students, staff and faculty proved that they are intolerant of intolerance and will come together to defend their fellow students. Approximately 1,000 supporters attended the march in response to last Sunday's stabbing of a 20-year-old gay UA student. The three-hour march began at a park on Fourth Avenue and Second Street and ended at the UA Mall.

Lesbian Looks Film Series holds second screening
[news]
The Eighth Annual Lesbian Looks Film Series ran the second of three cinema installments on Saturday night with two documentaries about very different families. Organizers said the series addresses the lack of gay and lesbian films in Tucson, while breaking down many of the stereotypes embodied in society. "It's a popular event that brings in lots of people," said series co-founder Beverly Seckinger. "We try to show stuff that would not be shown in Tucson otherwise."

Quotable:
"I disliked the name then, as I do now, but in spite of my objection, they liked it; thus, the strip was named 'Peanuts.' ... Who was I, an unknown kid from St. Paul, to argue with them? I gave in."

-Charles Schultz on the name of "Peanuts," that he picked when he started at United Feature Syndicate.
