Larry Margasak Biography

Title:
Associated Press Writer
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"
Reasoning:

“Victims of anti-gay violence would gain new federal protections under a revived and expanded hate crimes bill passed by the House on Wednesday [Apr. 29, 2009] over conservatives’ objections.

Hate crimes – as defined by the bill – are those motivated by prejudice and based on someone’s race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability.”
