Transcript omimjo C^ ay-Lesbian Student Association (GLSA) was comprised of men and women who had bonded together to support and defend their civil liberties. They also helped the community by educating the public about one of the world's greatest fears: AIDS. AIDS Awareness Week was a campus- wide effort to inform students of the facts about the fatal disease. The GLSA, along with the Students Association, set up booths and tables all around the campus distributing flyers, pamphlets and free condoms to the students. There were also demonstrations held on the proper use of the condom, the importance of safe sex and the role it has in the fight against AIDS. The students who participated felt strongly about the issue and on April 26, they held an AIDS benefit to honor those who had either died or t Their devotion to AIDS awareness.. .was too strong to be stopped. * were crippled because of the affliction. Their fight didn't end there. Their devotion to AIDS awareness, the university and students was too strong to be stopped by ridicule and em- barassment. The group was extremely proud of who they were and what they stood for. Hopefully, their fighting made a difference at UH and in the world. Throughout the year, the group organized various activities that would help create public awareness about AIDS. A Candlelight Vigil was in the UC arbor for students and friends that were afflicted with AIDS. John Chien said, "Being a member of GLSA has helped me to accept who I really am." Heather Burmeister, another GLSA member added, "Some people just don't understand."-Heather Baptiste VMW- WW If GAY-LESBIAN STUDENT ASSOCIATION (front) Landis Odoms, Paul Smith, Britain Cotrone, John Chien, Alma Chavarria, Nick Montmayor III, Baby Djojonegore; (row 2) David Kuhns, Jon Bourgault, Barb Howard, Susan Boyd, Paul Spiller; (back) Russ Jenkins- Lane, Guy Burns, Dale Oliver.
