"It became my mission to promote hope in the face of all the hopelessness that there was about AIDS back then." - Reverend Steve Pieters
PORTLAND, OR, October 05, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In the episode premiering October 5, DB Honeybutter Podcast features The Reverend Steve Pieters, one of the original AIDS survivors, activist, therapist, and most recently, celebrity, famous for his groundbreaking 1985 interview with Tammy Faye Bakker that inspired Jessica Chastain to take the lead role in The Eyes of Tammy Faye. Steve shares his long and inspiring journey through AIDS, spirituality, gay culture, the power of hope, and how his fairy wand ended up in the Smithsonian.
"Interviewing Steve Pieters was an honor and great fun. His stories of surviving AIDS from a time of great fear to his groundbreaking interview with Tammy Faye Bakker to dancing at the podium next to Elizabeth Taylor to waving his fairy wand over so many who needed hope, were moving and inspiring. Steve is a fighter, an advocate, and the most humble icon to ever end up in the Smithsonian. I especially hope the younger LGBTQ+ community will hear his story and message."
