Aunt Rita’s Foundation

Since 2005 Aunt Rita's Foundation has operated in Phoenix, Arizona as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, but has a rich history dating back to the 1980's. In 1986 three individuals founded Aunt Rita’s Foundation in the beginning years of the epidemic. They saw in the mid 80’s a lack of resources and recognized something needed to be done, as they watched close friends die from the disease with nowhere to turn.

Randy Schrock, Gary Mangum and Skip O’Neill set on a humble quest to raise money in annual bake sales to provide relief for those living with, and dying from, AIDS. When federal government assistance through the Ryan White Care Act began in the early 1990's, funding became more plentiful and the need for Aunt Rita’s Foundation waned, and the final bake sale was held in 1996. In 2005, HIV/AIDS agencies came together and supported the return of Aunt Rita’s to help offset declining federal support.

Scholarships

Miss Gay Arizona America Pride Scholarship 2018

Jordan Montgomery

Jordan Montgomery was born and raised in Southern California, until moving with his family to Phoenix in August 2015. When Jordan was about eleven or twelve, he realized that he felt attraction to other boys in his school. Being that this went against his Mormon faith tradition, Jordan vicious repressed any part of himself that would even hint of him being gay. This led to Jordan spiraling down into depression, his grades slumped and he pushed away all of his friends at school and church. Jordan’s parents were concerned with this drastic turn in behavior, and began investigating. Jordan’s mother eventually found Jordan’s journal and then realized that he was gay upon reading it. His parents then approached him about the journal, and he admitted to being gay. Since Jordan came out, he and his family have worked tirelessly to reform change within their Mormon faith culture, trying to make it more accepting and loving for LGBTQ+ people within their community. Jordan has volunteered at various organizations such as the Trevor Project for suicide prevention, the Encircle Resource center in Provo, Utah, the Ricky’s Retreat AIDS hospice, and the Affirmation Organization, which promotes love and acceptance within the Mormon community internationally.
