Tournament of Roses Features AIDS Float

Tournament Of Roses Parade To Feature First-Ever AIDS Themed Float

Karen Ocamb reports at LGBT POV:
This year the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena will make history: it will be the first time in the parade’s 123-year history and the first time in the 30 years since HIV/AIDS was identified that a float will acknowledge those who died of AIDS and the advocates who helped them. [snip] Many of the 150,000 water vials will hold “AHF Memory Flowers” with inscriptions of the names of lost loved ones handwritten on the vial. AHF says their “Elizabeth Taylor: Our Champion” Parade Float was designed by award winning float designer Raul Rodriquez and is being built by the respected and award-winning Fiesta Parade floats.
