WORLD AIDS DAY: Looking Back, Looking Forward – Rev Steve Pieters
December 1 is World AIDS Day each year (since 1986). Today, we will hear from Rev Steve Pieters, thought to be the longest surviving person with full-blown AIDS in the U.S. Diagnosed when AIDS was still called GRID in 1982, Steve was told he would die before 1985. Rev. Pieters was the first gay man and the first person with AIDS to be interviewed by a televangelist on US TV. That 1985 interview is featured prominently in a new movie called “The Eyes of Tammy Faye.” Steve will share with us what it was like to be a gay man with AIDS in the early days, and as someone who survived beyond anyone’s predictions.
This looking back to history, however, is with the purpose of looking forward to what needs to happen regarding HIV/AIDS now. You won’t want to miss this service and will hear stories you won’t hear anywhere else.
