Greetings, Cramers, Heidkamps, and friends alike:
Here is my schedule of events for my participation in the upcoming Gay Games this coming week -- some of the events may not be of interest, but please come out and support the ones you can! Everything listed here is FREE, and will be very casual -- just want to see as many people as possible in the small amount of time I will be home this coming week.
SATURDAY, 15 JULY
7:00am - International Rainbow Memorial Run
77th and South Shore Drive in the Rainbow Beach parking lot
All are welcome to participate -- Register on-site by 6:30am
As a Gay Games pioneer, Chicago native, former Co-chair for the Federation of Gay Games' Wellness Subcommittee, and a 21-year survivior of HIV, I am honoured to have been selected to participate in the ceremonial proceedings, unfurling the quilt (or maybe it's because I was Mr. Gay Illinois 1986?). Several of my family members will be there, including my 83-year-old Mom, herself a recent breast cancer survivor. My sister, niece and I plan to power walk the 5k course, and hope others will join with us.
