Today, December 1st is World AIDS Day.  Each year it as an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988.

Globally an estimated 34 million people have HIV.  More than 35 million people have died from the virus, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history.   There is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.

So many of our favorite daytime stars past and present have rallied for the cause and been active in the fight against HIV/AIDS , but perhaps no one has been more involved with the LGBT movement and need for equality and the fight against AIDS than former One Life to Live and Dallas star, and current cast member of Amazon Prime’s amazing series, Transparent, Daytime Emmy and Tony winning actress Judith Light.

Today on this important day, Judith sent out this tweet:  “2day is World Aids Day.  So we connect 2 the whole world & recognize that we r 1 humanity.  Our hearts resonate w/ remembrance of those lost.”

    The number of people who have died from AIDS is the roughly the entire population of Canada. Imagine if all of the citizens of Canada were to disappear overnight– the world would noticed. However, those who died from AIDS did not die on mass, but one by one, brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, children, slipped away, noticed only by those who loved them. We cannot afford to become complacence until a cure is found, so I applaud those who make the effort to keep this issue in the minds and hearts of everyone.
