The Gallery of Honor highlights the outstanding achievements of members of the San Francisco Bay Area community in the fight against AIDS. The fifty-four honorees represent the many people associated with local AIDS service organizations, including staff members and volunteers, who have had an influence on research, education, and advocacy efforts worldwide.

To assemble the Gallery of Honor, the Exploratorium invited Bay Area AIDS organizations to nominate one outstanding individual. All submissions are on display. Please join us in honoring these outstanding individuals:
