AIDS Walk LA Walker
Lois has been part of AIDS Walk LA since 1992, and it is her hope that the funds she raises bring us closer to ending HIV/AIDS. “I walk with my son, Paul, in remembrance of my cousin David Rubinstein and his partner Wayne Parker.” Last year, Lois saw that Wayne’s brother, Sean, submitted a story to us, and so Lois submitted her cousin’s story hoping Sean would see it.
“David was the production stage manager for Phantom of the Opera,” says Lois. “He was a vibrant, wonderful, loving man whom we watched deteriorate so quickly. He got sick in the late 1980’s and was gone before his 40th birthday. This was the time when all the medications for HIV/AIDS were experimental and he went through ‘Hell.’ The HIV/AIDS community has made great strides in making life easier for those affected.” Sean Parker, if you’re out there, Lois would like to speak to you!
