Macks, who passed away in 2010, was an accomplished competitor in the first few Gay Games, which started in San Francisco in 1982. She won three swimming medals in the third games, including a gold in the women’s 200-meter breaststroke. Macks also was a social worker and an early pioneer in working with HIV/AIDS patients.
All of the inductees and award winners will get a place on the hall of fame’s “wall of fame” located on the Taube Koret Campus for Jewish Life in Palo Alto.
