After her friend and “Little House” husband and co-star Steve Tracy, passed away due to complications of HIV/AIDS, Alison became a life-long AIDS activist and advocate working with numerous AIDS/HIV and LGBTQ+ organizations.

Tony Morrison

Since going public with his HIV status, Tony has been working hard to educate others about HIV/AIDS through his public platform and was recently named one of Plus Magazine’s Persons of the Year.

Thelma Houston Radiant Gala 2022

Thelma Houston 

GRAMMY-Winning Motown Legend

Thelma Houston is a dedicated music creator and philanthropist who started out in the 1960s performing gospel music with the Art Reynolds Singers. In 1967, Houston signed to Capitol Records (home of the Beatles, Nat King Cole, and Nancy Wilson), and had her first hit song with “Baby Mine.” Houston released her first solo album, Sunshower, on ABC Dunhill in 1969, which was written and produced by the legendary Jimmy Webb. After this critically acclaimed debut, Houston signed with Motown Records. Always a pathbreaker, at Motown, she claimed the top of the pop, R&B, and dance charts with her signature rendition of “Don’t Leave Me This Way.” This Gold Record classic gave Houston the distinction of being the first solo female artist at Motown to win the GRAMMY Award for “Best R&B Female Vocal Performance.”

Houston is known for her charitable causes and tireless efforts in the battle against AIDS. In 2003, the City of West Hollywood proclaimed January 29 as “Thelma Houston Day.” Houston has contributed her talents to numerous causes, including Divine Design for Project Angel Food, AIDS Project Los Angeles, and the Minority AIDS Project. She has been active with the NAACP and is a longtime supporter of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC).

To ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable evening, Radiant Health Centers will follow strict CDC guidelines for COVID-19, and proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the event will be required for attendance.
