My first (and only national) media exposure was in 1975, the year after I graduated from high school. The story? I spent the summer in Brazil as a “Teen Missionary”.
The morning edition Kansas City Times (now defunct) published my debut as a gay rights and AIDS activist in a feature entitled “Kansas City faces up to AIDS”, dated July 8, 1989. The Kansas City Star covered my race as the first openly gay candidate for city council in 1991, and I was frequently quoted in articles regarding the gay and AIDS-affected community in the 1990s.
