|Sisters' AIDS Candlelight Vigil||
|Sunday, May 20, 2012, 08:00pm - 09:00pm|
The first AIDS Candlelight vigil in 1983 was orchestrated by the Sisters, led by the banner "Fighting for our Lives," which was painted on Sister Vicious Power Hungry Bitch's apartment floor. One of the many speakers to the weeping and angry crowd was Sister Florence Nightmare (AKA Bobbi Campbell). She was not only a health care professional, but an advocate for PWAs and was herself HIV positive. Her article "Well and Good," in the Sentinel, combined observations of a man living with AIDS and practical insights of a medical professional. She and her "friend" (don't we mean lover?) appeared on the August 8 cover of Newsweek which earned her the moniker "AIDS poster boy". The article, about gays and AIDS, was the first time that the topics were handled in a fairly unbiased manner and that the entire nation was able to come face to face with AIDS. Join us as we remember these pioneers in the fight against AIDS, as well as the fight that still remains against this disease.
