The first case of AIDS in Houston was diagnosed in , shortly after the Montrose Clinic was incorporated as a non-profit focused on assisting the gay community. In the 35 years since that grim milestone, the clinic has transformed into Legacy Community Health, and the old fear of AIDS being an automatic death sentence is, for many, a distant memory. Preserving memories is now the goal of a new initiative documenting the history of those tumultuous years in Southeast Texas. We have to capture that time to remember and honor those who went before us and learn from it. The epic struggle endured by those with AIDS early on should not be lost to time.
