Randy Shilts

Shilts in 1987 Randy Shilts (August 8, 1951February 17, 1994) was an American journalist and author. After studying journalism at the University of Oregon, Shilts began working as a reporter for both ''The Advocate'' and the ''San Francisco Chronicle'', as well as for San Francisco Bay Area television stations. In the 1980s, he was noted for being the first openly gay reporter for the ''San Francisco Chronicle''.

His first book, ''The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life and Times of Harvey Milk'', was a biography of LGBT activist Harvey Milk. His second book, ''And the Band Played On'', chronicled the history of the AIDS epidemic. Despite some controversy surrounding the book in the LGBT community, Shilts was praised for his meticulous documentation of an epidemic that was little-understood at the time. It was later made into an HBO film of the same name in 1993. His final book, ''Conduct Unbecoming: Gays and Lesbians in the US Military from Vietnam to the Persian Gulf'', examined discrimination against lesbians and gays in the military.

Shilts garnered several accolades for his work. He was honored with the 1988 Outstanding Author award from the American Society of Journalists and Authors, the 1990 Mather Lectureship at Harvard University, and the 1993 Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists' Association. Diagnosed with HIV in 1985, Shilts died of an AIDS-related illness in 1994 at the age of 42. Provided by Wikipedia
