120. From a straight ally who lived in NYC during Stonewall;
who lost many, many wonderful NYC friends during the 70's & 80's due to AIDS & witnessed the horrific fear & shunning by so many of my friends with AIDS and the pain that caused; who joined every AIDS walk from the first in '86 ('87?)....I blubbered a soul purging blubber when I heard this morning. This is for you, Buda, Roman, Alan, Aidan, Roberta, JJ, Alvin, Bill, Q & Alix -- I wish you'd lived to marry. And to all who gave so much fighting for every scrap of dignity and rights that were garnered over the years. And to all of my GLBTQI brothers & sisters.....
