All of us in the Visual AIDS family are deeply saddened by the passing of Barbara Hunt McLanahan. Barbara was a force of nature, an incredible spirit, and an important friend and mentor to many in our community. During her years as Executive Director of Visual AIDS, she stewarded the legacy of the organization while propelling it into the future. She holds an important place in Visual AIDS' history and in our hearts, and will be greatly missed. We send our condolences to her family, in particular to her husband Michael and her daughter Jade.

We are gathering written remembrances and photos for an online tribute. If you would like to write something, or if you have an image you would like to share, please send them to [email protected].
