Reader's Hot Type column of October 25 on the Illinois Gay and Lesbian Task Force brouhaha regarding posters funded by the Playboy Foundation quotes Task Force cochair Joanne Trapani as saying, "The Howard Brown Clinic got crucified in the gay press and they're thriving. . . . I don't believe this organization [IGLTF] will die."

Yes, Howard Brown Clinic did undergo intense scrutiny in the gay press and it survived--under different leadership. Learn from history Joanne!
