In the wild early 90's, Celia and her crew built the Children's Play Room at Gay Men's Health Crisis' headquarters, a space for children to play while their HIV+ guardians were being taken care of.

She has also created and built a stage set for the celebration dance party for the NYC AIDS Walk, held at the Palladium in 1994.
