Lambda Archives of San Diego (LASD) is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and teaching the history of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the San Diego and Northern Baja California region.

One of the most compelling yet under-recognized chapters in our history is the remarkable actions of women - lesbians, trans and straight allies – in response to the crisis that was devastating all communities in San Diego, but in particular, gay men. In appreciation of all who gave in so many ways, we have selected the following individuals and one group listed below to be celebrated as our 2016 "Heroines, Pioneers, and Trailblazers."

We honor ALL women who stepped up and gave much of themselves in selfless acts and small heroisms.

Joining us are our Honorary Gala Co-chairs, Katherine Spaulding Faulconer, chair of the San Diego AIDS Memorial Committee, Speaker of the Assembly Toni Atkins and her spouse and community developer, Jennifer LeSar, and City Commissioner Nicole Murray Ramirez.

Can you join us, too, and ensure that the works of the "ordinary" San Diego women who did extraordinary things in the face of fear and hatred that permeated the air in the 1980s and 90s does not go unrecorded nor unrecognized?

We will honor 10 individuals and 1 group for their pioneering and extraordinary efforts during the early days of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in San Diego and Tijuana. Host a table, gather your friends to share a table, buy a ticket or two, become a sponsor, place a business card ad, or place an ad in remembrance of those you have lost to HIV/AIDS or one honoring these remarkable women.

Help acknowledge these "Heroines, Pioneers and Trailblazers".
