Are You Following The AIDS Memorial on Instagram?

If not, I highly recommend it. An anonymous man in Scotland, known only as Stuart, curates the page, taking submissions from friends and family of those lost to AIDS. It is a very touching page, sharing photos and memories of those lost forever. I find it cathartic to read of those both known and not, and it meant a lot when The AIDS Memorial shared this remembrance of Shane, below. If you want to learn more about my partner, Shane Sawick, who died in 1995, please click here.

“Were it not for his love of overalls, Shane Sawick would’ve fit perfectly into a 1940’s Cary Grant movie, trading quips with Rosalind Russell. An actor and Hotline coordinator at AIDS Project Los Angeles, Shane sailed through life, embracing it, until his final days. I was lucky enough to spend two years with him, and that impact–of loving and caring for him–cannot be underestimated. Without knowing him, I wouldn’t be the partner, father or writer I am today. Only by telling his story, and that of others lost, far too young, can we find a way forward, into the light.” – by Kergan Edwards-Stout
