Gay Hispanic Caucus or
Gay Lesbian Hispanics Unidos (GLHU)

1978 - 1995

This is one of the community organizations that sprung from
Town Meeting I, as summarized in the clipping below

Introduction

I could not do a better introduction for this section than the one that describes
the files donated to the University of Texas (Austin) by Dennis Medina. He was
very active in the group for years and you can find the rest of those details here.

The organization lasted until about the end of 1995. Newsletters named Noticias
were produced from roughly 1982 through 1995. A few can be viewed below.

above, while the name change happened in 1985, it first was noted in TWT in January 1986,
changing from the more political Gay Hispanic Caucus to Gay & Lesbian Hispanic Unidos,
reflecting a shift to more social, cultural and education focuses
