New York walks to support the 2013 AIDS walk

If as Ella and I are you are a proud member of the lgbtq community aids and HIV has hit you, your friends and family hard but you dont have to be gay to be affected in fact more straight people get infected each year than gay.

GMHC is a proud organization in new York on the fore front of the fight for service support and dignity and upholding of the rights of the infected community. No one fights harder or works harder than GMHC but the government thinks nothing of regularly cutting their funding.

Because of the constant fight for funds the yearly aids walk is a vital life line for the funding so urgently needed. For the last four years Ella and I have fund raised and rolled and walked the six miles of the aids walk to do our part. Over the years friendships have been formed and a sense of family built friends like Craig de Thomas a member of GMHC ‘s board is such a person.

Yesterday Ella and I and for the first time Zeus my service dog not only walked but had his own fundraising page and was a sponsored walker.

30,000 plus people braved the torrential rain that never stopped and as one we walked and rolled and as a community raised over $5,000,000 . If you really believe it takes a village to raise a child there is always room in the village of caring people who walk each year for you so see you next year.

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
