Remembering HIV advocate and filmmaker Marco Castro-Bojorquez

WASHINGTON — Following the death of HIV advocate and filmmaker Marco Castro-Bojorquez, Carl Baloney Jr., AIDS United’s vice president and chief advocacy officer, issued the following statement: 

“Marco was a passionate advocate for justice. He was a gifted filmmaker who specialized in uplifting marginalized people, and people of color in particular. His approach to this work really impressed upon us the importance of listening to and centering the voices of the most marginalized. The HIV community honored Marco at AIDSWatch 2019 with the Positive Leadership Award in recognition of his lifetime of service and advocacy. We should all embody his commitment to lifting up the most vulnerable. Losing such a powerful advocate is truly a major hit for our community and the movement.”
