The Names Project Metro St. Louis

The NAMES Project Metro St. Louis is a local chapter of the NAMES Project Foundation in Atlanta. Here are just a few of the quilt panels that were on display Sunday at Tower Grove Park for Pridefest St. Louis. It is a very emotional experience to see all these panels. They were also carried in the parade.

The NAMES Project Metro St. Louis seeks to use the AIDS Memorial Quilt to bring and end to the AIDS pandemic by:
  • Assisting with HIV prevention and Awareness;
  • Providing a creative and artistic means for remembrance and healing;
  • Illustrating the enormity of the AIDS pandemic;
  • Increasing public awareness of AIDS;
  • Raising funds for local AIDS service organizations
