Real Bad Party Raises $200K For Charities

Real Bad, the annual volunteer-run closing party for Folsom Street Fair, raised a record $200,000 this year for its beneficiaries. Via press release, here's where the money will go:
AIDS Emergency Fund: A provider of financial resources to prevent homelessness and add stability to the lives of those disabled by HIV/AIDS.

Alliance Health Project: An organization that brings the skills and expertise of UCSF, one of the nation's leading health sciences universities, to an LGBTQ community‐based clinic.

Asian & Pacific Islander Wellness Center: A provider of education, support, empowerment and advocacy for Asian and Pacific Islander communities — particularly those living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS.

Bay Area Young Positives: An organization that helps young people, ages 14 to 26, living with HIV/AIDS live longer, happier, healthier, more productive and quality-filled lives through peer-based services.

GLBT Historical Society: An organization that collects, preserves, and interprets the history of GLBT people and the communities that support them.
Next year Real Bad will celebrate its 25th anniversary. (Tipped by JMG reader Craig)
