Keith Christopher (1957-1998), a singer/songwriter, actor and AIDS activist, made television history when he appeared as the first openly gay, HIV-positive performer to portray an HIV-positive gay character on NBC's “Another World.” He was next invited to create the role of Wyatt Sanders, a gay HIV counselor, on the daytime drama “The Guiding Light.” Christopher dedicated the last years of his life to being a spokesperson for Gay Men's Health Crisis. At GMHC's 1997 AIDS Walk in Central Park, Christopher was a keynote speaker, along with Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins and Rosie Perez. His song "One People" was commissioned by the United Nations Environmental Project, and "Pieces of Lives" was written for and performed by Christopher at the first display of the Names Project Memorial Quilt in New York City. At the time of his death in 1998 he was nearing completion of his first CD, “Naked Truth,” posthumously released by Significant Other Records. Keith Christopher died of AIDS in New York at the age of 40 on February 23, 1998 and is buried at Mount Calvary Cemetery (333 SW Skyline Blvd, Portland, OR 97221).
