Ryan White Memorial Sculpture Unearthed Comments (0)

Ryan White, the kid who in the '80s was the face of AIDS among the non-gay set — and yet who was hassled and rejected because of his diagnosis — inspired a Bill Mack sculpture that was once unveiled by White's mom and Elizabeth Taylor.

Since then, it disappeared, but was discovered by College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving, a moving franchise, in one of its warehouses at the bottom of a pile of stuff.

It's wonderful that they recognized the statue's significance and rescued it.

Now, exactly 30 years to the month after White's death, as we grapple with another pandemic, it's being displayed in their HQ in Tampa. Here is a pic of the piece in place.

Its inscription:

RYAN WHITE…
HE HAD THE COURAGE
TO TELL US HIS STORY
AND GIVE US ALL
HOPE.

AIDS Quilt Leftovers Used For COVID-19 Masks Comments (0)

People Magazine reports that scraps from the AIDS Memorial Quilt are being repurposed as masks to fight COVID-19. I wish that sounded uplifting, but it sounds impossibly sad.

I visited a section of the Quilt in Chicago on October 7, 1990, and took — apparently — only two photos, one of local legend Gabor, an artist, and one of the very, very discreet Perry Ellis panel. I shot Perry because a flamboyant pal of mine was a fashionista who had been obsessed with him, and I was fascinated that Ellis's panel was sort of a deep blue-violet color with only his name, very tiny, in the middle.
