Bob Read

"Through my work with the paper I also had the extraordinary luck to become friends with Bob Read. He was a founding member of both Pink Triangle Services (PTS) and ACO. The first executive director of ACO, David Hoe, flat out stated that there were people alive today who wouldn’t be if it were not for Bob Read’s dedication. His death in November 2000 was a great loss to Ottawa and another sad milestone in the epidemic’s march."
