he Bill ik Ann Shepherd Legal Scholarship
Fund of Equity Foundation has named three
recipients for the 2G0L2004 academic year, includ­
ing its first out-of-state scholar. Tire fund honors
law students in their List year of study who are ded­
icated to donating part of their legal expertise to
helping keep their state hate-free by fighting big­
otry and discrimination against sexual minorities.
Frances A. Crockett experienced great levels
of discrimination ¡is the hearing child of two
deaf parents in Mobile, Ala. Now attending
University of New Mexico Schtxil of Law, she
was a pivotal force in the state’s recent passage
of legislation outlawing discrimination based on
sexual orientation and gender identity.
Tiffany A. Dickson left a substantial tenure of
volunteer service to queer communities in
Boston and transplanted herself to Eugene, where
she promptly infused her zeal for involvement by
, revitalizing the sexual minority student group
Outlaws ¡it University of Oregon School of Law.
Victoria L. Larson came to Portland after
of Outlook, the queer advocacy organization at
Denison University in Granville, Ohio. She has
been an active member of GLOBAL, North­
western Schtxil of Liw ’s queer student organiza­
tion, and facilitated a retreat last spring that
helped organize the college’s first “Sexual Ori­
entation, Gender Identity and the Law” semi­
nar, which will he taught in 2004-
The scholarship is named after the couple
who co-founded Portland’s chapter of Parents,
Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. Bill

health coalition has launched the first
regional effort to promote hepatitis vacci­
nation among gay and hi men in Oregon and
Washington.
“Hepatitis A and hepatitis B are the only
sexually transmitted diseases that people can
vaccinate against,” said Fred Swanson, execu­
tive director of Seattle’s Gay City Health Proj­
ect. “This is a proactive way for gay and bisexu­
al men to take control of their health.”
Gay City has produced three postcards con­
taining up-to-date medical information and pro­
moting vaccination. The state of Oregon is
coordinating a collaborative effort among Mult­
nomah, Washington and Clark counties, which
will he responsible for distributing the cards in
public health centers, bars, sex clubs, coffee
shops and other queer venues through their
MSM (men who have sex with men) outreach
programs.
In 2000, G ay City worked with Seattle
and King County public health officials on
crafting an innovative hepatitis vaccination
campaign. A year after its dehut, vaccination
rates among gay men in Seattle increased by
64 percent for hepatitis A and by 10 percent
for hepatitis B.
However, a large number of men still need
to he vaccinated. According to a 2003 survey by
the Gay and Lesbian Medical Asstxziation at
Pride festivals throughout the country, includ­
ing Seattle, more than 67 percent of gay and hi
men had not been vaccinated against
hepatitis A, and more than 60 percent had not
been vaccinated against hepatitis B. Increased
rates of hepatitis infection among gay and hi
men have been reported in many large cities
