Ms. Lampanelli is a vocal supporter of GMHC. She attended the 25th annual AIDS Walk New York in 2010, the proceeds of which benefit GMHC and 41 other HIV/AIDS organizations in the tri-state area.
In the 30th year of this epidemic, we know that to end HIV/AIDS, we must also continue to address homophobia and stigma which are lethal drivers of this disease. We need more people like Lisa Lampanelli to help us by utilizing their creativity, talent, skills and generosity.
We are grateful for Ms. Lampanelli's kindness and courage to fight homophobia. She is holding up a mirror to bigotry and hatred, and reflecting back love and generosity.
