Couple say theirs are family values
By Peter Smith
LEXINGTON, Ky. — Barb Scherrer and Sue Strong picked a home in suburban Lexington 17 years ago because they wanted a good neighborhood where they could raise Strong's two children. They have lived there ever since and now dote over a 5-year-old grandson.
They view themselves as living very much like a married, heterosexual couple, yet Kentucky law forbids them to marry, and they are fighting a proposed state constitutional amendment that would ban civil unions and strengthen an existing state law defining marriage as being between a man and a woman.
Show brings protest
BY JEFF MUSKUS
(Friday, April 2, 2004) Over 50 people, led by members of the Yale Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered Alliance, gathered outside Toad's Place on Monday to protest the performance of reggae artist Capleton whose songs, they alleged, advocate the persecution and murder of homosexuals.
The concert, originally billed to begin at 8 p.m., did not start until an hour and 45 minutes later, with fewer patrons inside the club at 9:45 p.m. than protesters at the door.
