The first case of AIDS was reported 40 years ago this month. Since then, millions of people all over the world have lost their lives to the virus. The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus feels the pain of that tragedy particularly acutely, having lost over 300 singers to AIDS since the choir was founded in 1978. Clint Johnson has been a member of the Chorus for over 34 years.
