Reports that the Memorial University of Newfoundland Film Society held a screening of The Times of Harvey Milk, considered to be “the most important gay film of the year”, on September 27th. AIDS Night was to be held on October 5th, co-organized by GAIN and Katz bar, to raise money and distribute informational pamphlets and books to the gay community and to other Atlantic Canadian lesbian/gay groups.
