    In Broward House, the largest non-profit HIV/AIDS agency in Florida, at which I volunteer, and where my partner works part-time, there is a framed photo of Elizabeth Taylor with the Board of Directors from a few years ago. She has been a wonderful friend to the gay community, and a pioneer in celebrity support of HIV/AIDS issues. I wish her the best, as should all GLBT.

    Lets not over look the funds Ms Taylor has been able to raise, for AIDS. But like you she has done so in safety from her manson in the hills. Unlike us foot solders who survived the 70's and 80s, 90 and did most of the hard ground breaking work; when so many hid, and did nothing when we needed them the most, to help build foundations, and get the ground work done at ground zero.

    But.......... nothing last forever, and she has already lived a long life, and man, how many husbands did she end up having?

    ET is one of my all time favorite actress. her techniclor-perfect violet eyes mesmerized me as a child, her figure entranced me as a teenager, her courage in being an early HIV research supporter endeared me to her in my early adult years.

    i view "butterfield 8" over and over again just to admire her and the sunbeam alpine sports car she drove in that movie. icon_cool.gif

    I have never seen any of the movies with Elizabeth Taylor in it. I found one online: The Last Time I Saw Paris (1954)

    Liz’s Legacy

    Elizabeth Taylor dedicated decades to fighting HIV. Here are some highlights.

    http://hivplusmag.com/Story.asp?id=2207&categoryid=1&issue_emi=current&jt=0

    [quote]
    - Taylor has helped raise approximately $100 million to fight AIDS.

    - In 1984, Taylor coordinated and hosted the first fundraiser for AIDS Project Los Angeles.

    - Soon after her friend Rock Hudson died from AIDS-related causes in 1985, Taylor founded the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR). “I am on a crusade against AIDS and I’ll battle forever even after a cure is found,” she said at the time. “Making people aware of the disease, and comforting and embracing sufferers, has been my greatest role off screen.”

    - Since its inception, amfAR has funded 2,000 HIV and AIDS research teams worldwide.

    - Thirty years after she wowed the public with her Edith Head-designed gown at the 1969 Oscars, Taylor auctioned it off, netting $167,500 for amfAR.

    - Taylor testified before Congress for the Ryan White bill in 1986. When the legislation was finally passed in 1993, it helped fund emergency AIDS care in needy areas.

    - Ronald Reagan, heavily criticized for remaining mum on the subject of AIDS for much of his presidency, spoke at a 1987 amfAR fundraising dinner after Taylor invited him.

    - Taylor founded the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation in 1991 to “focus on funding AIDS-based service organizations that deliver direct care to people with HIV and provide public education efforts,” according to the organization’s website. The ETAF has given grants to 311 HIV-related organizations.

    - ETAF dispatched a $500,000 mobile medical unit to help HIV-positive New Orleanians affected by 2005’s devastating Hurricane Katrina.

    Liz also need something to replace her booze and pills too, as I a ground foot solder concerning AIDS, and the support I gave during our darkest years when so many fleed and did noting, one finds it hard to respect what she did from her Bel Air Ivory Tower; now the late Princess of wales; Lady Dianna Spencer, is a diffrent story.

    Albeit may Betty rest in peace.
