Coming out as a persian gay man in LA was not easy for me. Not knowing any gay people myself made it even more challenging. I found a great deal of support in the LGBT Center and the services that they provided and continue to provide to the LGBT community in Southern California. Now it is time for me to give back to my community.
I am especially excited for the future work they have planned for their new intergenerational Village providing much needed services and housing options for LGBT individuals while also taking on the challenge of bringing together different LGBT generations. It is only through learning about the struggles we all have gone through and continue to go through that we can join together and support our community. These efforts mean a great deal to me and I hope that you will join me in supprting such a wonderful cause.
I am riding to support the LA LGBT Center and all the programs and people it serves. I am also riding to keep awareness on all the effort and sucess they have made in making HIV/AIDS an managable illness and not a death sentence.
Please join me in supporting the great work they do and Thank you!
June 2nd - June 8th, 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.
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Will you support me by making a donation today?
