Billy Callum at Gay Pride March

Title

Billy Callum at Gay Pride March

Description

Billy died at age 35 yrs. in 1985 in Boston. In this photo he is 20 years of age (1970) at his first Gay Pride Parade in NYC. He was an aspiring actor going to the Circle in the Square acting school. Billy died of AIDS in Boston on October 3, 1985. He moved from NYC to live with me, his sister, when he was diagnosed. AIDS Action Committee, Dr. Groopman, Larry Kessler and his buddy, Dan Karl Sorensen supported Billy and his family and we will be forever grateful. The early days of the epidemic were scary and we would be lost without AAC. Thank you. (Image and information contributed by Joanne Callum Powers, sister to Billy Callum)
