Yesterday we go to say goodbye to Ray at his memorial funeral service on the steps of Houston City Hall
He helped organize the massive 1978 march against Anita Bryant. The Town Hall meeting at the AstroArena that led to the organization of the Houston TBLGQ community. Was a supporter and thorn in the sde at times of the Caucus.
Hill was also the subject of two documentaries, with the most recent one entitled, The Trouble With Ray.
Of course I knew Ray, and bumped into him from time to time at our various community events. I loved talking to him because it's not every day you get to talk to a historical community icon
The one thing I loved about him and I've also emulated in my own advocacy work is that he didn't just work on gay issues. He was a prison reform advocate. He supported the trans community and the First Amendment.
And we're going to miss him.
