Pictured, r-l: Turtle Creek Chorale artistic director Dr. Tim Seelig presents a check for $13,775 to Dr. Mathilde
Krim of the American Foundation for AIDS Research, as AmFAR's Cliff Ochser and Chris Emerson look on. The
funds were raised through sales of "When We No Longer Touch," a compact disc containing the title song cycle
by the late Kris Anthony, former Chorale composer-in-residence. Copies of the CD (also available on cassette)
are available by calling the Chorale office at 526-3214.
Wilson had vetoed similar measure
last year, setting off angry protests
California Gov. Pete Wilson on Sept. 25 signed into
law a bill protecting gays and lesbians from job
discrimination in that state, a year after his veto of a
similar measure set off angry demonstrations in Los
Angeles and Sacramento and riots in San Francisco that
damaged a state building.
The state’s gay and lesbian community, anticipating
that Wilson would again veto the gay job rights bill,
had already mobilized for demonstrations again this
time. But the demonstrations were recast as
celebrations when the Governor signed the measure.
On Sunday, Sept. 27, however, Wilson vetoed a
separate civil rights bill promising new job and housing
protections to gays and lesbians, the disabled and
people who do not speak English. Wilson said the
measure, sponsored by Assembly Speaker Willie
Brown, duplicated existing legislation — including the
bill he signed Friday — while adding needless
regulation of business.

LifeWalk leaders are especially
bouyed by the significant corporate
underwriting this year, which enables all
pledges collected to go directly to the
AIDS programs of Oak Lawn Community
Services. In other words, the corporate
grants have already covered all costs
related to staging the walk-a-thon.
