hi everyone!

I am so thrilled to be walking in the annual AIDS Walk New York on May 19th! Over the past few months, I have rigorously educated myself on the revolution, rebellion, and heartbreak of the HIV/AIDS crisis, specifically in the 80's. I have read up on Marsha P Johnson, Sylvia Rivera (and more) who were the pioneers of the Stonewall Riots, while also being fiercely involved in the 80s protests for human rights for those who were HIV/AIDS patients. I've watched documentary footage from these protests, looked over photos, read testimonies of survivors, and more. I am so proud to be walking on May 19th to be a part of and continue the passionate, crucial, empowering, and uprising nature of this movement. I ask that you donate what you can and help those with HIV/AIDS worldwide, as well as continuing the legacy of those who were (often politically and with homophobic & transphobic nature) victimized by these diseases.
