Bill Nelson

Bill Nelson was a leading GLBT activist in the tumultuous era of gay political awakening and the advent of the AIDS epidemic in Dallas.  A former high school teacher, Bill and his partner, Terry Tebedo, along with friends William Waybourn and Craig Spaulding, opened a retail store at the corner of Cedar Springs Blvd. and Throckmorton in the Oak Lawn neighborhood of Dallas, the "Crossroads Market," which became the epicenter of the activist GLBT community of Dallas for many years to come.
