Why I'm Running For King of Fantasy Fest 2018

Focus on Prevention and Education

You probably know me. Or know of me. At 5 ft., 19 inches, I’m kinda hard to miss. Ask my Mom, the little 120 lb. lady who gave birth to a gargantuan baby 64 years ago this month.


You may recognize me as a frequent AQUA IDOL singer…as the photo op shutterbug at fundraisers and events…or you’ve worked with me on Boards ranging from Samuel’s House and The Sister Season Fund to the Key West AIDS Memorial and The Key West Firehouse Museum…I’ve even been a catwalk model. I am also proud to be an honorary member of the LGBTQ community…husband to Stephanie…Dad to Sydney, Katie and Sarah…and one of the biggest advocates for A.H. of Monroe County, Inc and the services they provide to each and every one of you.


I’ve had the privilege of meeting many of the amazing individuals who make up the Keys…and I’ve noticed something. Many believe they are immune to HIV-infection. Can’t happen to them, they reason. They’ve never had an HIV-test.  They don’t know their HIV-status. And while you might NOT be INFECTED…you ARE AFFECTED.


This year, I’ve decided to try and do something about that: to help AH raise money so they can continue their important Mission…to prevent the transmission of HIV, with a big goal in the state of Florida to eradicate it by 2021. As a Candidate for King of FANTASY FEST 2018,  it will be my focus – PUN INTENDED -- for the next 8 weeks to educate…to raise public awareness. There may not be a vaccine or a cure, but we can stop the spread of HIV through safer sex, by using condoms, by investigating prescribed prevention like PrEP…and, if you DO find yourself living with HIV, where to go for help.


A.H. of Monroe is more than treatment, prevention and care. They’re about being pro-active…about Health…about Housing…BEFORE the crisis. And that’s For ALL. You don’t have to be a client to draw from their vast resources and knowledge. They give you access to resources you might not even be aware of. That’s one of the reasons they modified their name this year…to reflect that broader goal.


But, I cannot do this by myself.  I need your help. Help me have a great Royal Campaign by raising as much money as possible. Click on Facebook or look below for my weekly events.  We’re going to have a great time.
