Antonio: "I needed to be here to be among like-minded and like-spirited people. I’m an artivist and I use performing arts as a teaching tool for societal and behavioral change. In 50 years, I hope this march is commemorative, that we will no longer need a call to action, but we’ll be here to celebrate."
Marcia: “I knew I wanted to come today to witness history. I wanted to see my own energy be renewed in the fight for social justice. There’s a lot of work to do in our community when it comes to HIV/AIDS. I hope our presence can bring us together to continue these fights. In 50 years, I hope the fight is defined differently, that there are other battles."
