Gore Pledges Support for Gay and Lesbian Causes

At a National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce ceremony last night, Vice President Al Gore said that he was committed to passing an employment nondiscrimination act, increasing funding for AIDS research, and focusing more attention on hate crimes against gays and lesbians.

The crowd of about 200 was enthusiastic as Gore assured them, that as “full members of the American family,” gays and lesbians would “always have a place on our agenda.”
