Remembering Dr Tom Waddell on World AIDS Day

We're going to adapt a post from Team Chicago, because it's pretty fine:

On World AIDS Day, we celebrate Dr. Tom Waddell, a physician, a humanitarian, an Olympic athlete, and the founder of the Gay Games. The Gay Games is the largest international sporting event open to all, including POZ athletes and artists.

We celebrate the many lives lost, and the many people who survive, and who join us every four years at each Gay Games.

We will have more news in coming weeks on the issue of AIDS, and in particular our hopes for the most welcoming Gay Games ever for HIV-positive people in 2014 in Cleveland+Akron.

In 2012, let's let the three interlocked rings of the Federation of Gay Games logo stand for:

Zero new HIV infections
Zero discrimination
Zero AIDS-related deaths

And let the fact that they are interlocking rings remind us of the need for solidarity between people with AIDS and others, between rich and poor, between regions of the world.
