Candlelight March

Each year, Alliance for Housing and Healing organizes the West Hollywood AIDS Memorial Walk to bring awareness to World AIDS Day, where we lay roses on the memorial plaques along Santa Monica Blvd to honor those we’ve lost to AIDS.

The march began at the Northwest corner of Santa Monica Blvd. and Crescent Heights and continued to West Hollywood Park where the Paul Starke Warrior Awards were given out to individuals providing HIV/AIDS and/or substance-abuse services or volunteer hours to support these services.

This year we honored Luis Camacho for his efforts in bringing a voice to HIV/AIDS in our community and for being a long-time volunteer of Alliance and The Best in Drag Show. Luis has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to get homeless men, women, and children with HIV/AIDS into care and housing.
