California; Victories Tearfully Noted, but Struggle Continues

December 3, 2008

Several hundred people gathered in Golden Gate Park's National AIDS Memorial Grove on Monday to mark World AIDS Day. While speakers celebrated gains against the virus, in particular the development of more effective treatments, they said more must be done to help those struggling with AIDS in the United States and around the world. The Rev. Jim Mitulski, pastor of San Francisco's gay-friendly Metropolitan Community Church from 1985 to 2000, recalled a visit to a Zimbabwe orphanage where most of the children were HIV-positive and funerals were frequent. "These children have all died of a disease we have medication for, medication we fought in the streets for," he said. "These children are dying needlessly because nobody can figure out how to make a profit off their bodies."
