KTRU Tuesdays: Sexual Orientation Ordinance Debate

Though the reel is labeled the “Project 91.7 Affirmative Action Debate,” the title is a bit misleading. This debate took place a few days before a Houston referendum on adding the phrase “sexual orientation” to a non-discrimination ordinance.

David Phillips moderates District C City Councilman George Greanias and Methodist Minister Bill Oliver on the pro side and on the other District F City Councilman John Goodner and Episcopal Minister Albert Walling. The con side was also joined by Bill McGlashen of the Committee for Public Awareness. The debate was produced by Stan Barber with assistance by Jeff Matthews and Mike Gladu.

Here are larger images of the Thresher article on the debate.
