Names of Deaf Lost to AIDS

World AIDS Day is always an emotional day for us. We have lost so many amazing people in our community to AIDS. We often wonder what our community would be like if they were still with us.

Each year on this day, we update the Names of Deaf Lost to AIDS website. Adding new names to this list is always heart wrenching.

Paul + Bob

Paul P. Adams + Robert Rourke

Bob Rourke and Paul Adams were one of over 18,000 couples to legally marry in California prior to the passing of Proposition 8.  They were married at San Francisco’s City Hall on July 28, 2008.  And yes, they wore shorts (as shown)!

The couple, who reside in Alexandria, Virginia, recently celebrated their 4th anniversary.  Like many couples, they chose to keep their last names.

Congratulations!
