Love Out Loud for Brian Gaskill

This talented and much appreciated actor featured in Greg Berlanti’s The Broken Hearts Club is no stranger to daytime dramas. He was Guiding Light’s Dylan Lewis, All My Children’s Bobby Warner, As the World Turns’ BJ Green, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Oscar Marone and Port Charles’ Rafe Kovich, the character that truly put him front and center in the minds and hearts of many fans. The POZ Team welcomes his participation in a musical evening where he will have the opportunity to express his solidarity with a cause that is very important to him. This is not his first time helping us out and no doubt more than a few of his fans will be there for the meet and greet.


POZ’s fund-raiser for AIDS Walk New York, Love Out Loud, is well on its way to becoming another memorable evening. Our musical hosts are once again Tremors led by John Kouri with special guests Ilene Kristen (One Life to Live) and singer John Pagano.

Marj Dusay (Guiding Light) the accomplished actress who lost her son, Randall, to AIDS in 1993 will be there along with Mark Dobies, who appeared in Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart. Tireless devotees to many charities, The Lair's David Moretti and Colton Ford, that Optimum guy, Matt Walton; As the World Turns ’ Noah, Jake Silbermann, his fellow cast member Laurence Lau well known to many a Daytime fan and Guiding Light's Shayne Lewis, Jeff Branson,with Guiding Light alum, Brian Gaskill, actors Michael Tomasetti, BethAnn Bonner, well known from her recent role on One Life to Live will be there to meet and greet the attendees.
