Guam's GLBT community meets with senators

Posted: Updated:

Guam's gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community met with senators Jim Espaldon and Frank Blas, Jr. today at Carmen's Restaurant in Hagatna to talk about Bill 212.  The legislation was introduced by Senator Espaldon, which he called an alternative to Bill 185 or the Domestic Partnership Bill.

Guam Youth Congress speaker Derick Hills has said the group does not support the alternative legislation. Meantime, president of the Guam Alternative Lifestyle Association Tim Dela Cruz says today's meeting allows them to ask questions about the bill and provide input.  "We're hoping by meeting with them as well is that we'll continue to keep the discussion in terms of the civil rights movement we're pushing for (the gay community on guam) and trying to address some of those tied to same sex relations that are not legally recognized," he said.

Bill 212 was co-sponsored by Blas and Senator Tom Ada.
