“Art should be something that liberates your soul, provokes the imagination and encourages people to go further.” 

Keith Haring (born May 4) was a street artist, activist, teacher, pop culture sensation, openly HIV+, passionate, funny and sexy man with a heart as big as some of his projects.  He was (and will always be) one of my biggest star crushes.  His dancing figures made me happy.  His AIDS art helped me find a voice to articulate my fear and anger.  His death from AIDS just weeks before his 32nd birtday saddens me still.

Watch the documentary The World of Keith Haring and read the Keith Haring Journals.
