Thirty police officers raided the gay bar Gas
Oil in Buenos Aires’ “Gay Zone” on Aug. 11,
according to a press release from 20 Argentine
About 130 people were detained and 67 were
jailed and verbally abused for 10 hours in lice- and
insect-infested cells, according to the report.
The police had a search warrant alleging “cor
ruption” and confiscated a sculpture of a penis
and condoms as proof, the press release said.
Several TV cameras were rolling as the men
were led from the bar, the organizations reported.
Another gay bar, Petroleo, was raided Aug. 12
in the beach resort Mar del Plata, the press release
Sixty people were arrested, strip-searched and
verbally bashed by police, the report said. TV
crews were again present to out the club’s patrons.
Police reportedly found 30 packets of cocaine
in the disco, which the press release suggested
were planted by the officers or their accomplices.
At press time, the 20 organizations, most of
them gay, were planning to picket the Buenos
Aires Central Police Department on Aug. 17.
The Equal Opportunity Tribunal in the Aus
tralian state of New South Wales ruled July 20
that the NIB insurance company discriminated
against a gay couple by refusing to grant them
family health coverage, reported Sydney’s Capi
The judges said NIB must “comply with any
relevant laws in force in the State of New South
Wales,” including the 1977 law that bans dis
crimination against gay men and lesbians in the
provision of goods and services.
The ruling likely impacts all other insurance
companies in the state.
The case was brought by Andrew Hope, 32,
and William Brown, 36, of Newcastle, NSW,
who wanted to insure their two-year-old son as

A new program in Chinese universities will
teach 80,000 students in Shanghai and in Henan

Commission’s health department said the move is
the first of its-kind.
If the program, which begins in September, is
deemed successful, it will go national in early
1996, Xie said.
Among the 15 nations of the European Union,
France, Italy and Spain have 75 percent of the

About 120.000 people have developed AIDS

A new Russian law requiring foreigners who
visit for more than three months to prove they are
HIV negative, which was scheduled to take effect
Aug. 1, has been delayed for at least three months
because officials aren’t ready to implement it,
reported The Moscow Times.
Once the law comes into effect, long-term
visitors will need to present a certificate of HIV
negative status when applying for a visa.
The law also targets several categories of
Russian citizens for mandatory testing, including
prisoners and workers whose jobs involve travel,
such as sailors, cosmonauts and other unspecified
The Swaziland Royal Insurance Corporation
has begun mandatory HIV testing of applicants
for life-insurance policies valued at more than
$6,868, reported the Reuter news service.
“This is done to curb the high number of
claims made to the corporation in which the cause
of death is AIDS-related,” a spokesman said.
Ten percent of Swaziland’s 900,000 citizens
are thought to be HIV positive.
On July 27, Zimbabwe Information Minister
Bomwell Chakaodza forced the Zimbabwe Inter
national Book Fair to dis-invite the group Gays
The book fair, which ran from Aug. 1 to 5, is
southern Africa’s largest, attracting 450 publish
ers from 40 countries. This year’s theme was
“freedom of expression.”
Chakaodza accused the fair of promoting ho
mosexuality and suggested President Robert
Mugabe would boycott the event if lesbians and
gay men were let in.
Later, in his opening address to the fair, Mugabe
vociferously bashed sexual minorities, reported
the Reuter news service.
“I find it extremely outrageous and repugnant
to my human conscience that such immoral and
repulsive organizations, like those of homosexu
als, who offend both against the law of nature and
the morals and religious beliefs espoused by our
society, should have any advocates in our midst
and even elsewhere in the world,” Mugabe said.
“If we accept homosexuality as a right, as is being
argued by the association of sodomists and sexual
perverts, what moral fiber shall our society ever
have to deny organized drug addicts, or even
those given to bestiality, the rights they might
claim and allege they possess under the rubrics of
individual freedom and human rights?... I don’t
believe they [homosexuals] have any rights at
The ZIBF Trust expressed “the greatest regret
that [it] found itself with no option but to with
draw its acceptance of GALZ’s application.... Its
decision in no way compromises its commitment
to freedom of expression...and the widest pos
sible dissemination of reading materials,” the
U.S. Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) organized
70 congressmen who sent President Mugabe a
letter on Aug. 8 denouncing his homophobic
Frank wrote: “Attacking decent individuals
who are fully respectful of the rights of others,
who are productive and responsible citizens, but
who happen to be gay or lesbian is wrong.”
In South Africa, about 100 supporters of the
National Coalition for Gay and Lesbian Equality
picketed Zimbabwe’s trade mission on Aug. 11 in
protest against Mugabe’s statements. (Sources:
