As an active citizen, Prof Roy Chan helped set up AfA 30 years ago and is currently the president of AfA. His contributions have helped shaped many communities in Singapore including marginalized groups and individuals. The organization continues to empower and engaging persons living with HIV, ensuring that their voices are heard and needs met.

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing away of Benjamin Bernice Gho. He used to front several local gay bar, namely MOX and Does Your Mother Know (DYMK) and a “mother” to many.
We in AfA who have known him closely are still trying to come to terms with this sad, tragic news. We have known Ben for many years and are devastated to learn of his passing.
