Samuel Delany reads from “Times Square Red, Times Square Blue” at the beginning of the Last Address Tribute Walk: Times Square. The Tribute Walk then moved to the streets of Times Square, honoring artists lost to AIDS at their last residential addresses, as well as former sites of community, sex, and creativity. Visiting places of cruising, housing, and care, the seventh annual Last Address Tribute Walk located social life in the midst of the AIDS crisis.
