About

philosophy

 

I have always viewed the original purpose of Nightsweats & T-cells, the vision of Paul Monette, Victor Brown, Honey and myself (Michael) to be the most moving. That purpose is to put strong messages about AIDS on garments that people would wear. These messages could not be ignored. If I were standing in line at the grocery store and you were standing next to me you could no longer choose to ignore the death of all those whom I had lost. I am by nature a quiet person. This purpose has given me a voice, a powerful voice!

Michael:
