John Cunningham, left, chief executive officer of the National AIDS Memorial Grove, presented the National Leadership Recognition Award to gay Olympic diver Greg Louganis during the World AIDS Day event at the grove December 1. Louganis, who came out as HIV-positive in 1995, told the Bay Area Reporter in a recent interview that he has been involved with the AIDS grove for many years. The grove also held its Light in the Grove benefit November 30 to raise funds for the organization that is located in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.
