Spencer Cox Memorial

| 1 Comment

Spencer CoxSpencer Cox--friend, activist, and one of a kind--died from AIDS on December 18th. His memorial is this Sunday, January 20th, starting at 3pm, at The Cutting Room, 44 East 32nd Street, NYC. It's open to the public, and while seating will be limited, there should be plenty of standing room. A Facebook event page is here.

There has been much written about his life, and his death, in the last few weeks. Unfortunately, some of it has been highly speculative, but I think all of it has come from a place of caring. Two of the best write-ups have been an article in Gay City News, and a HuffPo piece by Spencer's long-time friend, John Voelcker. There was a great New York Times obit as well, along with a moving tribute by Anderson Cooper on his daytime show (watch it below).

I miss him dearly.

Comments on Peter Staley's blog entry "Spencer Cox Memorial"

Over my 17 years in HIV treatment education, clinical drug research, I have met a ton of folks. None, of which were the like of Spencer. We crossed paths many times over the years but, after "retiring in 2006", I lost touch with him. Im terribly saddened by his passing but the fight for the cure and treatment has lost one of its most bright, courageous and tireless warriors. Your battle with HIV Spencer, fought the battle for us all. Thank you, would and will never be enough.
