Fom May 31st to June 6th, over 3,000 Cyclists, Roadies and Virtual Cyclists will be participating in AIDS/LifeCycle, a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise funds for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. This year, I’ll be one of them!
The services provided as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive them, and your support means the world to me.
When I found out I was positive my world flipped upside down. So many feelings come to mind: anger, fear, sadness, loneliness, betrayal, and a deep longing to be loved and accepted just as I am, broken and all. I remember experiencing a deep yearning to belong, to feel a part of, so as to make those feelings of fear and inadequacy that come with an hiv diagnosis more bearable, less painful. And through this amazing experience that AIDS/Lifecycle provides I get to be a part of something greater than I, something far stronger than fear: the unwavering power of love.
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Will you support me by making a donation today?
