April 2, 1995 | PEARL JEMISON-SMITH, Pearl Jemison-Smith chairs the Orange County HIV Planning Advisory Council. She also serves on the Board of AIDS Services Foundation and is a founding board member of AIDS Walk
As a child growing up in wartime England, I dreamed of blue sky and oranges, of peace and no more "buzz bombs." Fifty years later, some of my dreams are a reality. I am living in Orange County where the skies are blue (often enough) and oranges grow on trees (here and there). Unfortunately, I'm still at war. Starting as a nurse in infectious disease epidemiology, I have become a professional soldier in the fight against AIDS. The fight is personal too.

What began as a day of protest by activists in Burbank turned into a partial victory Thursday in Washington as Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) scheduled a vote on a bill funding the nation's largest health care program for AIDS victims. The welcome news for AIDS activists came as Dole, a candidate for the GOP nomination for President, announced July 24 as the date for a Senate vote on the projected $690-million measure, which has 62 co-sponsors, including Dole.

It's been 23 years since a group of drag queens in Greenwich Village unwittingly started the modern radical gay and lesbian rights movement by doing battle with New York City police officers in the now-legendary Stonewall Riots.
