Topical files [series]

Topical Files (boxes 9-19, 27-30; 13.25 linear feet) consists mainly of subject files, collected or created by Jim Toy, and relating to his involvement with or mentoring of other gay organizations. Organizations represented with significant amounts of material include the Gay Hotline, the Gay Liberation Front, the Gay Community Services, LaGROC, and the Michigan Organization for Human Rights. Other portions of this series pertain to Toy's numerous committee and training responsibilities within the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan (filed under Episcopal) and on the general topic of the attitude of the various religious denominations to the topic of homosexuality and the inclusion of gays into church life (filed under Religion).

Another committee represented in this series is the Committee on Lesbian and Gay Concerns. Included here are the committee's correspondence, minutes, press releases, questionnaires, and resolutions. The series also contains records relating to Toy's involvement with the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti Chapter of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). Within this part of the series, minutes and correspondence are combined together because they are both included within the e-mails that members sent to each other. In addition, the series contains a small section of personal materials, including a Biographical folder, Correspondence folder, and a Miscellaneous folder. The Biographical folder contains information on Toy's life and a CD-ROM entitled "Jim Toy: A Celebration of Community Liberation." The Miscellaneous folder contains notes from an unknown event and collected publications from Michigan human rights organizations. There are a couple of folders in the series dedicated to the Ypsilanti Human Rights Political Action Committee. One folder contains correspondence and minutes of the committee, while the other contains correspondence and minutes of Rainbow Neighbors (which was a part of the Ypsilanti Human Rights Political Action Committee).
