Los Angeles County supervisors unanimously backed emergency efforts Tuesday to save an AIDS treatment program that has provided cutting-edge medication to uninsured and largely minority patients for two decades, after the National Institutes of Health announced plans to end millions in funding.

As one of the few openly gay judges in California and chairman of the Los Angeles County AIDS Commission, Rand Schrader has been a ground breaker, an outspoken champion of gay and lesbian causes, a leader in his community. Today the Municipal Court judge is facing a new challenge, the most daunting of his life: he has AIDS. Schrader, one of Southern California's most prominent gay activists, disclosed in an interview that doctors recently diagnosed his disease.

Rand Schrader, one of the first openly gay judges in California and an eloquent champion of gay and lesbian causes, died Sunday. He was 48. Schrader died at Century City Hospital of complications from AIDS, according to family friends. A Los Angeles native, Schrader was appointed to the Los Angeles Municipal Court bench in 1980 by former Gov. Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr. and continued to preside there until April.

I was disappointed to read of Assemblywoman Marian LaFollette's (R-Northridge) attack on the Los Angeles Unified School District's counseling program for gay and lesbian students (Metro, March 11). Her attempt to prevent the school district from assisting gay students is not in the best interests of these young people who are in a very difficult life situation. I attended Venice High School from 1960 to 1963. There was no "Project 10" then and I was cut off from understanding my existing homosexual feelings.
