Tributes

Stephen Kellogg was a dear friend who died in April 2005 just after his 87th birthday. He was pioneer of the gay rights movement. You can read about his 2004 LGBT Local Heroes award, or about the articles on gay seniors housing published in The Advocate and the GLBT Forum.

Dave Raboud died in October 2004, at age 45. He was a wonderful man who gave so much to so very many people, including the arts community. Friends have created a tribute site with photos (stories coming soon). His guest book gives a sense of what he meant to the people whose lives he touched. His school created a tribute page, and because we don’t know how long it will stay up, it’s reproduced here.
