Since my sons' deaths I have dedicated my life to fighting AIDS and giving gay issues presentations. I began by giving the closing speech for the AIDS Memorial quilt in Kansas City, Missouri on December 2, 1990 -- six weeks after my second son's death.
I have been featured on PBS-TV, KMBC-ABC-TV, Cablevision KCCP, and also on KCMO and EKET radio talk shows in Kansas City, Missouri. For a year and a half I co-hosted a weekly two-hour radio program in Douglas, Arizona.
I was one of 750 community leaders across the nation invited to participate in an AIDS congress in Washington, D.C. -- Breaking Barriers Building Bridges. Our story was featured in Woman's World woman's weekly magazine, July 16, 1991. I talk to groups in public schools, colleges, professionals, and participate in national forums on the family -- not only in the USA but also Sonora, Mexico.
