|I don’t have the skill to make a real quilt, so I offer this electronic one, based on an African pattern on my favourite T-shirt that means good deeds for my friends and lovers who have died of AIDS. There are so many, I know I have forgotten some. Friends had heard I had died and they burst into tears when they saw me. The same happened to me when my friend Robert Jackson came back from the dead at a gay pride event. Often people hide out for the last months of their lives at the very time they need their friends the most. It is so important to let your friends know you love them while they are still alive. Stephen Arod Shirreffs has a similar list. Our lists of friends overlap though we never met each other. Some of the entries have backing photos. If you have better photos, or photos for those without them, please pass them along.|

Happily I have not added names recently. Sex education, better drugs and my own isolation have stemmed the torrent.
