- The Yale AIDS Memorial Project (YAMP)
YAMP is looking for passionate members of the Yale community to produce new profiles for our expanding online memorial to students, alumni, staff, and faculty who have perished during the AIDS pandemic. By collecting stories and photos from friends and family of the deceased and building these materials into a cohesive profile, you can help YAMP honor the lives that were lost, while making the epidemic palpable for a younger generation and help to stimulate an AIDS memory boom. Compensation will be provided; more details can be found here. For more information about the project, please go to yamp.org. To apply, please E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

My name is Rachel Lipstein, editor-in-chief of Yale's only queer publication, Q Magazine. I was able to speak with many of you at the GALA reunion and was thrilled to share this project. If you weren't able to attend or missed us at the reunion, you can visit us at qmagazineatyale.com, and, if you would like a hard copy, we will send them out! Finally, if you would like to get involved, purchase a subscription, or if you have any questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
