No on 6
Campaign in Houston
October 1978

The defeat of the Proposition 6 initiative (also called the Briggs Initiative) was an important
gay victory, and the effort got national attention, with fundraising efforts including in Houston.
The failed initiative would have banned gays and lesbians, and possibly anyone who
supported gay rights, from working in California's public schools
