Remember: An AIDS Retrospective – Photography by Award-Winning Photographer Kurt Weston
This December 1, World AIDS Day 2018, I found myself at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, attending Kurt Weston‘s show, Remember: An AIDS Memorial. I was honored and humbled at the same time to be part of the AIDS Then & Now Panel Discussion, together with esteemed individuals and renowned HIV/AIDS advocates like Philip Yeager, Executive Director/CEO at Radiant Health Centers, and Dr. William Thompson IV, infectious disease and HIV specialist. The panel discussion was moderated by Kurt Weston, award-winning Visual AIDS artist, long-term HIV/AIDS survivor, and advocate.
Here are a few images from this unforgettable World AIDS Day 2018:
