Kelly Lyles - "Cal Anderson Portrait"
Cal Anderson was a trailblazer. He was an activist, a decorated Vietnam War combat veteran, a Washington State Senator and a friend. He was also Washington state's first openly gay legislator.
Cal fought tirelessly and without fanfare for campaign finance reform, easier voter registration, open access to government documents and gay rights legislation. He called himself "a Democrat who happens to be gay," and he made a difference in many lives.
Cal Anderson died Aug. 4, 1995, of illness related to AIDS. He was 47. On April 19, 2003, Cal Anderson Park was named and dedicated in his honor.
