Kick Off Fundraiserfor AIDS Memorial
in San Diego Brings
Iconic LGBT Talent to San Diego

AIDS Memorials have been established in major cities around the world and it’s long overdue for San Diego to join those ranks. With nearly 8,000 deaths to-date related to HIV/AIDS in San Diego County, it is imperative that San Diegans remember those that have passed and continue to fight until there is a cure. The AIDS Memorial will be a place of remembrance and reflection. The AIDS Memorial Task Force is co-chaired by San Diego Mayor Kevin Falconer’s wife, Katherine Stuart, and LGBT activist, Nicole Murray-Ramirez. This project will be funded with private contributions. Essential responsibilities of the task force will include “Call for Design” efforts, location determination, fundraising efforts and finally an unveiling ceremony when the memorial comes to fruition. The Task Force is excited to announce that fundraising for the memorial will kick off with an AIDS Memorial “Concert for Life” on March 26th, 2015, produced by Being Alive SD, and Susan Jester.
