Every year during the holiday season No/Aids Task Force holds its annual event Art Against Aids. This year was just as much fun as last year. It was great seeing friends and meeting new ones. I did notice that the crowd seemed smaller, but regardless it was an amazing event. I have to give credit to Rodney Thoulion and the many volunteers to put this event together, and thank you for inviting me. I was very impressed with Michael Walters as Dame Edna, I really enjoy his show and had some good laughs.
Now I don't want to say anything negative, but anyone who knows me I am aware of my surroundings and have no problem saying what's on my mind. So, here goes. I did notice that whenever I would say hello to someone, or ask to take their picture you would think I was asking for their most prized possession. I mean I've known snobs before, but this event seems to really draw them out of the "woodwork" (don't get me wrong I'm not including everyone). I've never experienced standing next to someone and saying excuse me and they spend the next two minutes looking down their nose at me, as if I've grown two heads, and asking someone if I can take their picture, you would think I was steeling something. I just don't understand it to be honest, I thought this is supposed to an event to support a great organization, but then again I've been wrong before.
Even with that said, I don't want to dismiss the great work that NO/AIDS does throughout the year, and I am very proud of the relationship I have with them. I always look forward to this event and would never forgo the opportunity to support NO/AIDS Task Force.
