St. Louis AIDS Agency Hires New Director

St. Louis, MO – A St. Louis area AIDS agency that once hired a gay porn star for a "safer sex" event has chosen a new executive director.

Blacks Assisting Blacks Against AIDS said yesterday George Cotton, Sr. will be the new director.

Cotton has served on the school board and city council in the St. Louis suburb of University City. He replaces Erise Williams Jr., whom the agency fired in November after learning about the porn star event.
