A big “Thank You” to host and organizers:
- Jeffrey Kalinsky
- New York Event Co-Chairs: Brenner Thomas
- Andrew Mitchell-Namdar
- And Phillips Nazro
- To all the volunteers, donors, and patrons who continue to make this a successful and important event each spring.
For nearly 25 years, EJAF has been at the forefront of the effort to move forward with the advancement of LGBT health and rights, specifically in areas most populated by HIV/AIDS. It is widely know that when vulnerable people are left behind by our society, HIV always thrives.
That’s why it is essential that people support organizations that are working in places where racial and sexual minorities are most stigmatized, and where there are few or no services for people who use drugs. The support of organizations like Jeffrey Fashion Cares make this type of work possible.
It is truly amazing what can happen when you gather so many wonderful people together. The Jeffrey Fashion Cares benefit was a thing of beauty.
