Michael Shahin, first time AIDS Walk participant in 2019

“Last year, I participated in AIDS Walk Los Angeles for the first time. It was such an inspiring and uplifting event. There is so much support, love and open mindedness in Los Angeles when it comes to people who are affected or living with HIV/AIDS. The diversity and mixture of people who attended AIDS Walk last year was mind blowing and was so beautiful to experience. I am so grateful that I was able to walk and raise awareness that HIV/AIDS is still alive and strong in our community and still remains to be an imminent threat to our well-being.”
