4 to 5:30 pm: panel discussion – LGBT Perspectives on HIV Long-term Survivors, at GLCCB.

In solely focusing on eliminating HIV / AIDS, we neglect to include our long-term survivors, leaving those living longest with HIV feeling isolated and left behind. Long-term survivors and those that have cared for them will share their unique perspectives on a disease that changed an entire generation. Free. More info at Bit.ly/2tr6w7V.
