Never in my life have I met, or been privileged to know, a man who represents the LGBT community so well. His work has built bridges between the LGBT community and the communities of New York, London, Ireland and the world over. He has touched countless men, of which I am one. It was his mentorship and friendship that encouraged me to begin my own work with HIV and AIDS. .
Bernard is still very active in his work to support the LGBTQIA community as well as the HIV and AIDS community. I still call him my friend and mentor. Please take a moment with me to honor him.” — by Cosgrove Norstadt . #whatisrememberedlives #theaidsmemorial #aidsmemorial #neverforget #endaids
