This week, the Blade commemorates this Sunday’s World AIDS Day by highlighting stories of individual Los Angeleans who have fallen in the battle against HIV.
These daily tributes serve to remind us of all who have been lost to the disease. They are drawn from the archives of The AIDS Memorial, a non-profit organization that operates popular pages on several social media platforms, in the spirit of their motto, “What is remembered, lives.”
