AIDS: Houston's Response
This summary was presented, in poster form, at the Houston Heritage
Society GLBT Exhibit "Throughout: Houston's GLBT History,"
during the summer of 2015.

It is an excellent tracking of the events.

Crossroads '91 Controversy

This was a well-intentioned observance that ran head first
into difficulties. The local Atheists group got the Montrose
Blvd plan blocked and a delayed event was held in Bell Park.

There was a LOT more public debate in the press, see the 1991 section of the Gay Atheists page

I acquited these two pages that must have come from a AFH flyer, of those to be honored by the crosses
By no means a complete list of ones we have lost, it also has many spelling and duplication errors,
but still is an interesting list

below, 1983 flyer from KS/AIDS Foundation



10/28/16, Ray Hill commented on the 1983 flyer and the CHE publication:

Steve Shiflet and I had been at odds since I secured his resignation as president of the Caucus
for not supporting the endorsed candidate, Debra Danburg, in her first race for the TX Legislature.
He organized CHE Citizens for Human Equality and I was not welcome to join but when the
community faced what was becoming a health crisis, He called, we patched up and I was asked
to write the pamphlet you see here. The printing was paid for by Jack Jackson selling raffle tickets
to win a color television I wanted it illustrated with hunky guys but the City of Houston Health
Department refused to distribute it like that so we made cartoons af Bambi and Thumper messing around.

If anyone can send me a better scan of the flyer, please let me know

There are obviously many more newsletter editions and AIDS publications that
I have not had access to for scanning. I recommend serious researchers visit
the University of Houston, MD Anderson Library Special Collections, as in the Fall of 2016 AFH, the AIDS
Foundation Houston, has donated to them a large collection of their archives. See announcement info.
