Human Rights Campaign Mourns Loss Of Elizabeth Taylor

WASHINGTON – Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, issued the following statement on the news of the death of actress Elizabeth Taylor:

“We are deeply saddened by the death Elizabeth Taylor.  Ms. Taylor was a true ally to the LGBT community.  She was one of the first public voices to speak up about the AIDS crisis while many others stayed silent in the 1980s and she helped raise millions of dollars to fight the disease.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family, and to all those whose lives have been positively impacted by the life and work of Elizabeth Taylor.”
