Papa Bear, founder of San Antonio AIDS Foundation, was SA’s first major HIV/AIDS Advocate. When gay men, who were patrons of Robert “Papa Bear” Edwards’ bar, became sick and dying of AIDS in the early ‘80s when not much was known about the disease, he knew he had to do something to offer them comfort and care and soon founded the San Antonio AIDS Foundation.

School will soon be back in session for youth across the city. Unfortunately, there are some topics they won’t be learning about in the classroom. Topics such as bullying, mental health, sex and STD prevention aren’t always discussed openly in schools. That’s why the San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF, “sāf”) created Teen Talk, a website dedicated to providing youth throughout the state with relevant and accurate information about a variety of topics related to their lives.
