Mario Sansalone  📍Los Angeles In June I’m riding 550 miles in the #aidslifecyle from SF to LA to raise 💰 in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Gratitude-filled donation link:

Matt & I are married! Filled with so much love and gratitude for everything that led to this. Celebrating with a small group (& Charlie) on a hike in Malibu was so magical and casual and perfect. 💫
I feel so lucky and privileged for the ability to build a life with my love and best friend, supported by loving friends, family, and local laws. I’m basking in the glow of that love. But too many LGBTQ folks here and around the world don’t share that privilege. So it’s a bittersweet moment for me. My wedding wish is that when you celebrate with me, you also remember that marriage is just one milestone in a continuing fight for equality for all LGBTQ people. 📷: @andrejustinvega

Over the last several months I prepared and raised funds for the @aidslifecycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Yesterday team @grindr and I completed that 7 day, 545 mile grind down the coast. It’s fair to say I was physically and emotionally depleted by the end of it; and honestly, by the end of almost everyday on the ride. But it was so worth it and I’m so grateful for the shared experience with this incredible motley crew. And we did so much good because of it. The 2018 ride raised a record setting $16.6 million to support local LGBTQ centers. Together, through the generosity of so many of you, we were able to contribute $10,768 toward that total. 💫
Thank you for following my journey and joining me in the fight against the disease!

In just 2 weeks I’m riding my bike 550 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise critical funds for the fight against HIV/AIDS. I’m working as hard as I ever have to prepare. Tonight @helloevelina and I chased the sun up to the Hollywood sign.
I’m beyond grateful to everyone who’s joined me on this journey. 🙏 I’m sooo close to my fundraising goal, but not there yet. I’m dedicating the next $1k raised to all those who quietly, selflessly volunteer their time to improve the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS.
In the late-90s I was in middle school in Oklahoma City. And my mom would routinely cook and deliver meals for homebound people, including many young men without much family support dying of AIDS. I sometimes helped her deliver the meals and saw the humanity behind the “gay plague.” In Oklahoma at least, there was a small band of moms stepping in to support my community. It so easily could have been me in need of those meals and community.
The donations you make fund similarly powerful programs for those who need them most. Can you spare $20? ✨Fundraising link in bio✨

I joined a bike gang. Our main gang activities are politely asking for money to fight HIV/AIDS and training for a weeklong 545 mile ride from SF to LA. Will you please support me on this journey with a small $10 or $20 donation? 🙏 link in bio

Today is a #dayofsilence in support of LGBTQ youth everywhere. No student should miss out on their education because of discrimination. @intomore @glsenofficial

I just biked 78 miles and it was one of the most physically challenging days of my life. But it was a solid confidence booster - I’m exhausted but not depleted and proud that I stayed on my bike through all the hills. ✨In June I’m riding 545 miles 😱from San Francisco to LA in the AIDS/Lifecyle to raise $10k for lifesaving medical and social services for people living with HIV/AIDS. ✨

I’m so grateful to the 43 friends who have joined me on this adventure by becoming donors! Won’t you join us? 🙏 My fundraising link is in my bio.
