Held in commemoration of World AIDS Day, which is observed annually on Dec. 1, the Winter Ball raises funds for the LGBT Network’s HIV/AIDS outreach, testing, prevention, education and support services. Legislator Drucker presented a Nassau County Legislature Citation to Feather, a longstanding supporter of the LGBT Network and HIV/AIDS advocate in Nassau County and Queens.
“As we mark the 30th anniversary of World AIDS Day, it is important to reflect on how far we have progressed from the initial horror the pandemic in the early 1980s, draw inspiration from the tenacious and life-saving advocacy that emerged from that darkness, and continue the fight so we can witness the end of HIV and AIDS in our lifetime,” Legislator Drucker said. “I am deeply grateful to Floyd Feather, the LGBT Network and their supporters for all they have done to bring us closer to that day.”
