From the Unity Calendar, 1994: L. Hal Carter was actively involved in the African-American Gay and Lesbian Social Movement over the past decade.

Quote: "We were already a people in crisis as African-Americans before the epidemic in need of self-healing, affirmation, definition and recognition. In this crisis, if you don't think living with HIV/AIDS is a possibility, our actions will reflect a lack of hope and we will not be open to learning things that could help preserve our health. The medical community may not have all the answers."
