But we, and I mean people with HIV/AIDS lost a friend, an advocate a voice that always supported us. This Wednesday will will discuss Elizabeth Taylor, her life, her career and her role in AIDS activism. Why did she become an AIDS activist? A great actress and the “most beautiful woman in the world” would not normally devote her life to a disease that was initially affected gay men. What was it about her that was different than most other people? How will we miss her?

Elizabeth Taylor died Wednesday March 23, 2011

Mark S. King: “It’s impossible to overstate the impact Elizabeth Taylor has had on HIV/AIDS awareness and funding since the earliest days of the epidemic (Ms. Taylor died earlier today).

Since the early 1980’s, when people were still wearing masks and gloves around AIDS patients, Ms. Taylor (Elizabeth to her friends, never Liz) has been at the forefront. She organized the very first “commitment to Life” event in 1984 for AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA) — and while doing so, learned her friend Rock Hudson was dying of the disease. She co-founded the American Foundation for AIDS Research (AmFAR) in 1985, and her own Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation in 1993.”

Oh yeah. And she was an Oscar winning movie star, the likes of which we may never see again.
