[camera original] [ 38:00] [Catherine Saalfield (Gund)]

NYC Mayor Dinkins speech and Q&As at the Lesbian and Gay Community Center, NYC.

Dinkins promises no names reporting and no mandatory HIV testing and explains his appointment of Health Commissioner Woody Myers [...sometimes raucous audience response]

[From ACT UP Capsule History:]
ACT UP spearheads an investigation into newly-appointed New York City Mayor David Dinkin's selection of Dr. Woodrow Myers for Commissioner of Health. It finds out that as Indiana State Health Commissioner, Myers endorsed and attempted to implement mandatory HIV testing, partner tracing and quarantine. After ACT UP protests at City Hall, Dinkins states that these policies will not be tolerated in NYC.
