Here’s one of my favorite movies and scene starring Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson from 1956. It’s as powerfully relevant today as it was 54 years ago. You know those ‘cries for “STATES RIGHTS”
And last but certainly not least, Dame Taylor was a fierce ADVOCATE for AIDS.
Harvey Weinstein: Elizabeth Taylor Was AIDS’ Greatest Fighter
Elizabeth Taylor was more than a Hollywood legend—she was one of the earliest champions against the AIDS epidemic. Film producer Harvey Weinstein remembers her tireless passion for the cause.
Elizabeth Taylor is known around the world as an Academy Award-winning actress and screen legend, but I am privileged to have known her in one of her most incredible roles: as a fierce advocate in the fight against AIDS. This was a role she played for 25 years and she brought to it every ounce of her considerable passion, intelligence, and will. She selflessly let her star power be used for the cause. She was a cheerleader, a globetrotter and an advocate. Source
Rest in Peace, Dame Taylor.
