“This quilt means something different to everyone,” said Ryanmarie Rice, Compass’ chief of staff. “It’s deeply personal and is hard to put into words.”
“We want to raise awareness of the continuing pandemic that is now largely being disregarded because of current treatments which are mistakenly perceived as cures,” Barrero said. “Of all my friends that I came out with in the early ’80s, less than a handful are alive today." - Rolando Chang Barrero
