A Day to Celebrate with AFAN!

With Downtown Fremont Street as a backdrop, the AFAN AIDS WALK went off to a great big bang, with over 8,000 people participating to help the 3500+ people living in Las Vegas with HIV/AIDS.  From entertainers like Hal Sparks (Queer As Folk), the Jersey Boys and the Grand Marshals of the AIDS WALK for the 10th consecutive year, Penn & Teller, it was definitely the place to be!

I met Angel Porrino from Holly's World (also Holly's understudy from Peepshow) and I saw Lara Croft from Holly's World.  I was a bit confused by their team tees, which read "TEAM TOILET" but, hey, it was a day to have fun.  Angel, herself, is such a nice person.  Too bad the girls (that no one knew) around her were so rude.  I was confused because of their cast mate, Josh Strickland, had named his team Strickly Strollin'.  One would think Lara and Angel would have been on his team.  Perhaps he wasn't enthused with the Toilet Team motif.  Who knows?

Yours truly had his name called out on stage.  Number 6 fundraiser out of 8,000!  Next year, we shoot for Number 1.  The walk was a bit challenging, with myself, Yitzee, Oscar and Dab the Aids Bear courtesy of and Dab Garner of Wilton Manors, Florida.

Gene, my partner, could not make it as our wonderful friend was hospitalized and Gene needed to be with him.  Thank you all for your thoughts on my facebook page.  Now, on to "Country Strong," which is actually good!
