In this edition of "Tapestry: The Faces of AIDS," the World AIDS Museum (WAM) and Educational Center presents artist le roi hutton. In his up close and personal interview, le roi explains his early life career as a ballet dancer in his native Houston as well as in New York City and San Francisco. He shares his frustration with an injury that prevented him to continue his dancing career during the last performance of a world tour with the Joffrey Ballet. He then found his voice as an artist as a painter who is now writing short stories to accompany some of his current visual art. The World AIDS Museum is the first museum dedicated to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The Educational Center provides information on treatment and prevention of HIV. Whether infected or affected, everyone has been touched by this in their own personal way.
