If your not partying like this tonight are you really parting? 😂

#worldaidsday always sneaks up and hits like a ton of bricks. I cut my teeth in San Francisco in the late 90’s. At the tail end of the mass deaths when we were teens living like seniors, caregiving, agitating, and watching our friends die painful deaths. Far too early.
One friend, who died at 21, orchestrated his funeral. Every song, every outfit, and location. I remember dappled redwoods and glitter and gowns and platforms and driving in a back of an open truck blaring “Trouble” by Cat Stevens. His mother’s face etched in my memory for time immemorial. I’m probably her age now. He was too young. She was too young. We were too young.
#ActUp taught me diligence, activism and creative resistance. I learned that if a solution doesn’t exist, you educate yourself, you research, you push and push until some change occurs. You find a way out of no way.
I miss my friends. I’m grateful for the lessons, but the education was never worth it. Keep fighting, it’s not over.
With love and in memoriam.
Everyday these people are working so hard to end HIV/AIDS stigma and discrimination.As part of #WorldAIDSDay2019, I'm grateful and so honored to be part of it.
