Washington State
AIDS memorial unveiled

A memorial to Snohomish County, Wash., residents who've died of AIDS complications was recently unveiled in Everett, Wash., culminating five years of efforts by local gay activists to honor those afflicted by the disease, the Seattle Gay News reports. The memorial, a bronze plaque supported by two columns, was dedicated on World AIDS Day in the plaza of the old Mission Building in downtown Everett, marking the first such memorial to AIDS victims in the state. The plaque reads, "We remember our friends and family lost to AIDS. We honor your struggles, your lives, and your memory. We dedicate this memorial to all those lives touched by HIV and AIDS." The memorial was designed by George Little and David Lewis of Bainbridge Island, Washington State. (Advocate.com)
