Daniel Krumholtz & James Burke

Daniel Krumholtz was born May 17, 1956 in Buffalo, New York, he died of complications due to AIDS on October 5, 1990 in the City of New York. He lived most of his life in Cleveland, Ohio where he was educated and recieved a degree in English and Art History form Kenyon College. He returned to New York in 1978. He made his living working for the Department of Human Resources for the City of New York. He lived with his lover of eleven months, James Burke in Greenwhich Village, New York City until his death.

His papers are held at The LGBT Community Center in New York City. The collection contains numerous posters from Gay clubs in New York, they came folded in envelopes as invitations to events. The collection also contains a small number of file folders which contain the hospital, doctor and laboratory bills of Mr. Daniel Krumholz, and are due to his illness with AIDS. The collection tells very little, if anything about either Mr. Burke or Mr. Krumholz.

The collection came to the archive from Mr James Burke. It arrived in a cardboard box. Mr. Krumholtz' lover James Burke has his collection held at The LGBT Community Center as well(#044 James Burke Papers).

Come Out and Win will educate, engage, and agitate LGBT and straight activists to become involved in the political movement to win full equality under the law and sexual/gender freedom. Spurring a new generation of activists to positive social action, it not only tells the history of gay liberation but, crucially, offers guidance and practical advice for building organizations and taking concrete action to eradicate homophobia.

From starting a gay-straight alliance in your high school to the most effective way to lobby your state representative face-to-face, Come Out and Win explains how to organize and become politically engaged in a clear and user-friendly manner. Other issues explored include youth organizing, marriage equality, legislative change, public relations, having a voice in the mainstream press, putting on a street demonstration, and political organizing from local to national levels. Grappling with the complexity of grassroots political interactions, Come Out and Win suggests ways for LGBT communities to form coalitions with women's organizations, communities of color, and faith communities.
