World AIDS Day

Over at Fabulon, Thombeau has made a brief return to write far more eloquently than we ever could about World AIDS Day. Head over there yourselves to read the post in its lovely entirety; we've excerpted the following:

"...To Klaus Nomi, Keith Haring, Freddie Mercury, Brad Davis, Rock Hudson, Anthony Perkins, Robert Reed, Derek Jarman, Sylvester, Ricky Wilson, Kurt Raab, Dack Rambo, Peter Allen, Wayland Flowers, Tony Richardson, Lance Loud, Leigh Bowery, Perry Ellis, Alvin Ailey, Herb Ritts, Egon von Furstenberg, Halston, Vito Russo, Michael Jeter, Rudolph Nureyev, John Boswell, Dan Hartman, Michael Bennett, Paul Jabara, Jacques Morali, Néstor Almendros, Jobriath, Ethyl Eichelberger, Robert Joffrey, Charles Ludlam, Robert Mapplethorpe, Craig Russell, John Sex, Way Bandy, Willi Smith, Michel Foucault, James Merrill, Randy Shilts, and countless others: You were incredibly creative, and you were BIG FAGS. These two facts go hand-in-hand. Your artistic expression extended into all aspects of your lives, Life being the greatest Art of all. Thank you for sharing..." --
