ALBANY, Ore. (AP) -- A poster at an Albany community college that contained hateful words about gays and lesbians was fraudulently attributed to the college's diversity center in an apparent protest of the center's sponsorship of a gay-rights film.

Linn-Benton Community College and Oregon State University were jointly presenting the screening of filmmaker Joe Wilson's "Out in the Silence," the Albany Democrat-Herald reported.

The film is about the controversy that erupted in Wilson's small Pennsylvania hometown after the local newspaper published the announcement of his wedding to another man.

The posters were removed by campus security, and the community college is attempting to identify the person or people responsible.

The posters also contained the e-mail address and phone number of the school’s diversity center coordinator.
