    Bruce Ward,
    Thank you for giving the world your words. Of truth, fear, loneliness, living with HIV and the history surrounding it all. I too, lost so many dear friends. You are an incredible contributor of that time. To me, so that we never forget, ever. How life turned upside down with this horrible disease.

  2. Hi Bruce. This is Hallie Levine for AARP. I’m writing a feature on where we are now in terms of HIV treatment and research, and would love to get some quotes from you as an activist. Do you have any time to talk this week? My email is hzlevine@aol.com

      Of course! I’m always willing to talk. Though I’m not sure I would consider myself an activist. More of an archivist/chronicler/advocate. But everyone has their own definitions. 😎 I certainly have a lot to say about the totality of the epidemic, from the perspectives of both a person living with HIV/AIDS, and as a chronicler. As well as a former director of federal AIDS program. I’ll shoot you an email. Thanks for your interest!
