FAM Update from the Board Chair, 2022 3Q

Dear Friends,

The summer certainly flew by! Here is what we at FAM have been up to in the past quarter:

Social Media: We posted six (6) audio stories on our Instagram and Facebook pages with accompanying visuals. Those stories are:

Jake Glaser’s tribute to his late younger sister Ariel and his late mother Elizabeth who founded the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation;

Cosgrove Norstadt’s appreciation of openly-gay Catholic priest and AIDS activist, Rev. Bernard Lynch (this story originally appeared on The AIDS Memorial).

Justin Ross Cohen’s remembrance of Tony Award-winning director, choreographer and writer Michael Bennett; and

Ed Wolf’s touching story about a mother, her late son and a young AIDS patient at San Francisco General Hospital (this story originally appeared on on The AIDS Memorial);


FAM received three (3) additional audio recordings for the HEAR Our STORIES project – they can be found on our website (links below):

Please be sure to follow us on Instagram and FaceBook, where you can see and hear videos related to our HEAR Our STORIES audio recordings project.

We at FAM hope you enjoy the Fall and that we will see you at one of our upcoming events.
