Recorded: March 12, 2017
Released: March 16, 2017

The newly forming Austin LGBTQ Center has started an online video library of our coming out stories. We all have a story to tell and through those stories, we may be able to give someone the courage to come out and let them know they are not alone. We have all had to come out in one way or another in the LBGTQ community. Once the Center is open, we will have a dedicated recording studio and will be expanding the online video library to include experiences through the LGBTQ History. Take a few minutes and watch the first batch of videos! Many more will be coming soon!

By the time of the first [World] AIDS Day – December 1, 1988 – Dale Thele had already faced down the enemy, so to speak – not just the fear of HIV, and the deaths of many of his close friends, but the misinformation and the rush to judgment that the early days of the AIDS epidemic created.

Fast-forward to 2016: Dale, who has been diagnosed with AIDS, is one of Travis County’s most well-known AIDS activists, and a staunch proponent of the services offered by CommUnityCare David Powell Health Center.
