Bob moved to Bozeman from New York City, where he experienced many personal losses during the height of the AIDS Crisis. He worked as a caregiver in the AIDS Ward of New York’s St. Vincent Hospital and has also been involved with several LGBT organizations, such as Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS and the Yale Gay and Lesbian Alumni (GALA) association. As the Executive Director of AIDS Outreach, he now seeks to share his experiences and knowledge with the local community in order to educate and empower all those who are affected by HIV. Additionally, Bob is committed to serving as a mentor to young people who are struggling here in Montana to express their own queer identities.
Hi I’m Colette. I’m a graduate of Montana State University with a degree in Community Health. I started with AIDS Outreach back in 2011 when I met Greg Smith when he presented at my Human Sexuality class. Something in that talk encouraged me to learn more about HIV, AIDS and the local organization. I became the intern for the organization at that time. I later became a certified HIV tester. I am currently a tester and board member.
