In its 34th annual AIDS Walk beginning and ending in Central Park on May 19, Gay Men’s Health Crisis raised more than $4 million to support living-saving services there and at other HIV/ AIDS organizations in the tri-state area. More than 15,000 participants either walked the 10k route through the Upper West Side or ran five miles within the park. Over the course of its 34 years, AIDS Walk has raised more than $160 million. “As we enter the presidential election season, we need to stay focused on how to elevate the issue of ending HIV and AIDS at all levels of government — and hold candidates and elected officials accountable for working with us toward our shared goal of ending the HIV/ AIDS epidemic,” said GMHC CEO Kelsey Louie.

“Pose” star Billy Porter, a Tony Award-winner for “Kinky Boots,” entertained the crowd.
