This Sunday, October 18, 2009 is the 20th annual Silicon Valley Walk For AIDS.
Whether or not you have any gay friends or relatives, you likely know someone who has contracted the disease, or at the very least, been a fan of a celebrity who suffers from or has died due to the illness.
From baseball player Glenn Burke (who incidently invented the ubiquitous high-five) to Rock Hudson, and Eazy-E
to former Stanford University basketball star Candice Wiggins’ father, former San Diego Padre, Alan Wiggins, it impacts gay and straight, famous and not so.
Let’s not forget Arthur Ashe, and disco singer, Sylvester, or Olympian Greg Lougainis who is HIV positive.
