    Bill was a real sweetheart. Our paths crossed many times over the years. He volunteered at APLA, worked the door at Studio One and White Party as this piece states, but I remember him telling me about the number of bath houses he owned across the country pre-AIDS and how successful they were. Rest in peace dear man.
