From May 31st through June 6th, graphic designer Sean Deyoe of The Royal Academy of Nuts + Bolts will be riding his bike from San Francisco to Los Angeles as part of AIDS/Lifecycle 8. But going those 545 miles is the easy part. As a participant, Sean has committed to raising $3000 for the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center.
The Center provides an array of important services to the Los Angeles community, including low or no-cost medical treatment for those struggling with HIV infection; access to free medication; developing multi-language educational materials and training for other community-based organizations; as well as testing, counseling, education, and advocacy.
With the economy in its current state, it is much more difficult for one to give, but, unfortunately, these hard times have also meant that the Center has seen its state funding significantly cut — at exactly the time when its services are more and more in demand, since so many people are either losing their health care or having their benefits greatly reduced.
