This will be my sixth consecutive year riding AIDS/LifeCycle. I am riding to end the epidemic that has claimed so many lives and changed so many other lives.
This year is more important that ever because of possible threats to AIDS funding. The San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center are committed to developing and propagating a strategy of zero transmission of the virus. That means getting meds to HIV+ people, reaching out to vulnerable people before they sero-convert, and being an integral part of their lives. What they are doing here is a model for all communities, a live experiment to prove that it can be done.
I am so proud of all my friends and family who have supported the ride through me. I'll be reaching out to you again, and ask that you contribute what you can, whether large or small, to help end this epidemic.
