In response to "2.3% of U.S. Men in Survey Report Homosexual Acts," April 15: Because there are a lot of people who for political and quasi-religious reasons want to diminish the number of homosexuals that exist in our society, a few cautions are necessary before we accept that the Alan Guttmacher Institute study on sexual behavior differs all that much from Kinsey's massive research of four decades ago. Besides the obvious fact that women...

How unfortunate that a project with the ostensible purpose of reducing prejudice and discrimination would instead further bigotry by "exclusion." Widespread violence against lesbians and gays exists with random physical attacks being common and verbal abuse epidemic. A report released by the attorney general's office in April, 1986, says that, "In every region of the state, incidents have occurred in which sexual minorities have been harassed, intimidated, assaulted and even murdered."

San Diego school officials have stated that they have no intention of adopting Project 10. Yet, these same people are employing Virginia Uribe, a lesbian who founded Project 10, to hold seminars for teachers ("Workshop on Gay Pupils Draws Protest," Sept. 25). Teachers will be "taught" how to deal with homosexual students and how to turn the classroom into a more comfortable environment for these kids. I wonder if they will also protect the fat kid from name calling, or better yet, offer him an alternate lifestyle.

Los Angeles Unified School District Supt. Leonard Britton and school board members voiced strong support Monday for high school teacher Virginia Uribe and her counseling program for homosexual students. Uribe, who teaches at Fairfax High School and works part time counseling homosexual students and consulting with administrators at other schools, came under fire earlier this month from Republicans in the Assembly.

Bill Jones, chairman of the county Republican Central Committee and admirer of ex-Klansman David Duke, takes a swipe at L. A. Unified School District's Project 10 program ("County GOP Locked in Power Struggle," Dec. 8), a dropout prevention program targeted at teen-age homosexuals. He characterizes Project 10 as an "underground" recruitment program which siphons money from AIDS research funds to finance homosexual how-to classes. Without commenting on the ridiculous nature of such mindless statements, I would like to reaffirm that Project 10 is a counseling program aimed at keeping teen-age gays and lesbians in school and from committing suicide or otherwise engaging in self-destructive behavior in ever-increasing numbers.

As the father of a gay son, I read with outrage and profound anger reports of the attack by Assemblywoman Marian LaFollette (R-Northridge) on Fairfax High School teacher Virginia Uribe, who counsels gay and lesbian high school students through her program, Project 10. All of his life, my son concealed his sexual orientation from friends and family even though he had known about it since early childhood, perhaps age 5. I had suspected that...

I see ("No Place for Doctors to Hide From AIDS," Op-Ed Page, Sept. 21) that for some in the medical establishment the Hippocratic Oath has given way to the Oath of Homophobia. It goes something like this: "I will serve anyone in need as long as it is not a homosexual with AIDS." Considering that the risk of catching AIDS is infinitesimal for those employing the proper precautions, it remains the task of the medical societies and the courts to remind these people of the duties implied in their commitment to medicine.
