red-ribbon-low-resred-ribbon-low-resFor the ninth consecutive year, we pause today, on World AIDS Day, to memorialize colleagues and friends from the gay adult film community taken by HIV/AIDS and related issues over the last 35-plus years. CLICK HERE to visit the World AIDS Day website. Every effort is taken to make sure the 100 or so names and dates are accurate, but confirming details like these can be tricky and mistakes do occur. Leave a comment if you spot any errors or omissions. We thank the moderators at RAME.net for their assistance in helping pull this list together nearly a decade ago.
