Hopping for Visibility, Awareness, and Equality: Fabulous Friday

All I ask today is that you go and read about an amazing act of love, courage, and compassion. Burkes is the woman, the person all of us can only hope to be in the face of insurmountable oppression. Let us never forget. Come on. Take a little trip with me.

Meet the Woman Who Cared for Hundreds of Abandoned Gay Men Dying of AIDS

Read This Post. You may cry. You may feel anger. And in the end, your heart will be filled with the incredible power of love. 

Just read it. And then pass it on, or pay it forward, or simply soak up the wonder that she stood up and stepped forward for these men.

That's truly fabulous.


  1. Such an inspiring woman, though it is tragic that she even needed to do what she did. I can't imagine abandoning a family member just because they contracted a disease, regardless of whether or not they were gay.

  2. Wow. I sure hope she gets that monument.


What's your take?
