Series II. Gay Rights National Lobby
(GRNL) and Stephen R. Endean files, 1970-1985 [series]:
GRNL was founded in 1976 and merged with HRCF in 1985. This series contains files of
Steve Endean, 1970-1985, and records of the Gay Rights National Lobby 1976-1985,
including founding documents; GRNL board meeting packets, 1976-1985; other
administrative files; files from GRNL's lobbying work in the US Congress, mostly on
immigration reform; and files from the Gay and Lesbian Leadership Forums, 1984-85, and
other projects. Endean kept files about lesbian and gay civil rights issues in various
localities around the country, 1978-88. His files also contain correspondence from
1981-85, including his resignation letter from GRNL.
GRNL's subject files on related organizations and on HIV and AIDS appear to have been
transferred to HRC and then maintained by HRC staff for some time. These files are found
in Series III: Legislative and Public Policy.
