Longtime HIV/AIDS advocate Randy Allgaier (September 9, 1957 - November 27, 2010) died on November 27, 2010, in San Francisco, according to a statement from the Communities Advocating Emergency AIDS Relief (CAEAR) Coalition. Throughout his life, Allgaier worked to give a voice to people living with HIV and to attain LGBT equality. Some of the groups he worked with include the San Francisco AIDS Coalition, the National Positive Working Coalition (focusing on HIV and Medicare/Medicaid), Equality California, the Human Rights Campaign and Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS).
Randy was honored in April 2010 with the National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA) Positive Leadership Award for his "tireless advocacy for people living with HIV." He was also named as one of “The Poz 100” by Poz Magazine, among the most inspirational and influential people fighting HIV/AIDS in the U.S. in 2010.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi released this statement on December 1st:
"On this World AIDS Day, those of us from San Francisco are grieving the recent passing of Randy Allgaier, who worked tirelessly to increase funding for HIV/AIDS treatment and improve systems of care. Randy, and so many in our city and nationwide, fought day and night to beat back this disease. Together, we will continue that same fight – working with determination, hope, and compassion to one day end the HIV/AIDS pandemic."
Randy’s husband of 22 years was Lee Hawn.
