Don't discriminate

Letters to the Editor

Hope Thomas
The Marriage Equality Rights for Oklahoma movement was launched to give hope and accomplish civil equality rights to the many people in this state oppressed by being discriminated against for sexual orientation. It is a movement to bring awareness on gay discrimination to all communities and also say it’s never too early or late to make a change.

From closet to community

How OKC’s gay and lesbian community emerged.


James Cooper

Editor’s note: It’s been 30 years since the first AIDS case was reported in the United States. This is the first of a two-part history of the disease’s devastation in Oklahoma City, and the story of how a community emerged to fight back and save itself. Much of the reporting is based on Aaron L. Bachhofer’s 2006 dissertation, “The Emergence and Evolution of the Gay and Bisexual Male Subculture in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 1889- 2005,” and interviews conducted this summer.

We Were Here


Phil Bacharach
It would have been understandable had “We Were Here” veered into the maudlin. The documentary, which recounts how San Francisco’s gay community united in the 1980s to combat the AIDS epidemic, has its share of gut-wrenching stories. But the film is admirably no-frills.

Thankful for change


Scott J. Hamilton
I have many things for which I am thankful this Thanksgiving. Topping that list, as he has for the last 21 years, is my husband, Wayne. Also high on the list are our four-legged children, my parents, good health, great friends and a job I love.

Even if her movie does not, Kathleen Turner shines as the moralistic matriarch at the head of 'The Perfect Family.'
