HIV/AIDS, Environmental Advocate Hattoy Dies

March 13, 2007

Bob Hattoy -- an HIV/AIDS and environmental advocate who in 1992 was the first HIV-positive person to address a national political convention -- died last week, the Los Angeles Times reports (Woo, Los Angeles Times, 3/6). Hattoy died of AIDS-related complications, according to Adrianna Shea, special assistant at the California Fish and Game Commission, where Hattoy was the recently appointed president. According to the New York Times, Hattoy "drew wide attention" with his nationally televised speech about HIV/AIDS at the 1992 Democratic National Convention. Hattoy also became a "forceful advocate for gay and lesbian issues" in the administration of former President Clinton, where he served as an associate director of personnel, the Times reports (Weiner, New York Times, 3/6). Services for Hattoy are being planned in Los Angeles, New York City, Sacramento and Washington, D.C. (Los Angeles Times, 3/6).
