Inspiration Found. Elizabeth Taylor
Inspiration found today in the beauty of Elizabeth Taylor and in her loyal friendship to my all time favorite crush Rock Hudson. In a time where movie studios built personas and the audience unlike today knew little about the person behind the movie star status, she loyaly defended her friend Rock who was not openly gay at the time. After his passing from AIDS she helped co-found amfAR and helped lead the crusade in the fight against AIDS. The amfAR site has set up an easy way to donate to AIDS research in honor of Ms.Taylor and continue in her exemplary footsteps. And to see the on screen chemisty of Elizabeth and Rock I highly recommend the movie Giant. For a dose of pure Rock Hudson, Pillow Talk is by far one of my favorite movies of all time. They don't make movie stars like that anymore is all I can say.
