School Board Bans Gay Group From Speaking At Annual Human Relations Convention

After a lengthy and tense meeting, the Torrance California School board voted to stop Gays and Lesbians Initiating Dialogue for Equality from attending the annual North High Human Relations Convention.

Linda Hoos, a staff attorney for the Anti-Defamation League, called the board's decision an "abomination", indicating that she would urge the Anti Defamation League to boycott the event.

Torrance school board member Joseph Bonano, who issued the original motion to bar the group, scoffed at Hoos' comments. "If they want to pull out and make one less presenter," he said, "that's fine. They showed their true colors."
