INTRO:
I’m participating in this year’s AIDS Walk Los Angeles, a 10K fundraising walk to fight the epidemic. Thank you for considering a donation! Every dollar we raise helps APLA Health stop new infections and support people living with HIV/AIDS.

WHY I AM HERE:
In 2005-2006 I did a wonderfully educational, original musical at the St. Louis history Museum. The writer, composer, directer was a kind man I had so much fun working with. His life was unfortunately cut short. Unknown to me, he was HIV+ and had been living that way a while - though I do not know how long. In the late 2000s an epidemic with contaminated spinach was a major concern. He unfortunately consumed this spinach, and with his immune system already compromised, passed away. It was heart-breaking, as he was so talented, so kind, and always ready to work. This is for you my man. Thank you for believing in me!

HOW YOU CAN HELP:
You can obviously donate to the cause via this site. It is also possible to join us as a volunteer, or simple attend the walk. Even sharing the information is helpful!

BREAKING THE STIGMA:
Since the 80s, it's been a misconception that HIV/AIDS only affects the gay community. This is not true. Many films and documentaries express the epidemic this illness became. I personally recommend: Long Time Companion (1989), And the Band Played On (1993), RENT (2005) - based on the original rock opera the creator never got to see, and And Early Frost (1985). While I recommend these, please do your own research seeing as there are positives and negatives to all films.

THANK YOU!:
I really do want to thank you for stopping in and taking the chance to at the very lease educated yourself on something important to me. You the real MVP!
