Following the murder of Matthew Shepard, Joseph P. Maliga undertook a project to address the problem of homophobia. For a
class he assembled a workbook called "Changing Attitudes: A Project Working Against Homophobia," containing press clippings,
government records and letters- and the responses to those letters- he sent to California State and federal Legislators. There
is also an MTV-produced CD-ROM and action guide called "fight for your rights: take a stand against violence" (1999) and photos
of Pride 1993. The collection also includes materials related to the San Francisco Gay Freedom Marching Band.
Collection is open for research. Mailing lists and other records holding the names, addresses, and/or phone numbers of individuals
will be restricted for 20 years.
