Rudy Galindo in Advocate Hall of Fame

The Advocate is celebrating its 45th anniversary and is naming a member of the Hall of Fame for each year. Rudy Galiindo is the hero for 2000 (hat tip to Outsports): 

Figure skater Rudy Galindo revealed in 1996, just before winning a national title, that he is gay, becoming a rare role model for being out in sports. Then the champion revealed in 2000 that he is HIV-positive, and ever since he’s used his story to raise awareness about prevention and life after being diagnosed. He’s received numerous honors off the ice, including the 2001 Ryan White Award. “If my story can help people — anybody at all — it is positive,” he told The Advocate in 2000. “I’ve always tried to help people, whether it be as a gay man or a Mexican-American or now, as someone who is HIV-positive.”
