Chuck Frutchey (August 12, 1953-April 21, 2000) was born in Farmington, Michigan, and lived in San Francisco. He was best
known for his work as an AIDS prevention educator with the STOP AIDS Project, the Coalition for Healthy Sex, and the San Francisco
AIDS Foundation. His sex-positive approach made safe-sex education fun and informative. Steve Speier, Chuck's partner, is
a high school teacher who also volunteered with AIDS education work. Scott Smith (October 21, 1948-February 4, 1995) was one
of Chuck's close friends; they lived and worked together. Smith was also one of the executors of the Harvey Milk estate. He
inherited the Milk Papers and was the caretaker for the collection until his death.
