The Foundation for a National AIDS Monument (501c3) announced three new members of its Board of Directors including actor & LGBT activist Zachary Quinto. The other two new members are Mark Itkin from William Morris Endeavor & marketing executive Tom Whitman, all of whom add a wealth of knowledge, leadership & experience to support the growth & development of the AIDS Monument, located in West Hollywood, CA.
Quinto stated, “I am excited to be part of the AIDS Monument Foundation Board of Directors, particularly because while the mission is to honor the lives of those lost as well as celebrating the people who fought & continue to fight for change & an end to HIV/AIDS, it looks ahead to keep the conversation about HIV current & relevant.”
In addition to starring in the Star Trek film franchise, Quinto earned an Emmy Award nomination for his work in American Horror Story: Asylum. Over the years, Quinto has dedicated his time to numerous charities including The Trevor Project & It Gets Better Project. The Foundation for an AIDS Monument has been working with the City of West Hollywood & local community members to plan for the development of an enduring physical & interactive testament to the historic & future fight against HIV/AIDS. The physical monument, as envisioned by internationally-acclaimed artist Daniel Tobin will honor HIV/AIDS activists, caregivers & community leaders & memorialize those impacted by the devastation of HIV/AIDS on a local & national level.
