Hist/Bio Note

A history will be available when the collection is processed. The Prairie Gay Community and Prairie Gay and Lesbian Communities were probably name changes of a single organization, while the Fargo-Moorhead Area Dignity/Lutherans Concerned was probably a separate, religious organization.
