In 1989, I lost my best friend. My Uncle Donny was the light of so many lives... and the father figure in my life. Before we even knew what AIDS was, it stole him from us, as it's done to so many others.
The LGBT+ community has been heavily affected by the AIDS epidemic. The Long Beach LGBT Center serves countless individuals in their journey of healing... not only in the face of HIV and AIDS, but also in being a healthy Queer individual.
November 5th is Donny's birthday. He would be turning 62. Every single day, I miss him. He'd never want me to sit at his grave with flowers and tears... so this fundraiser serves as Flowers for Donny.
