David Furnish, Don Lemon to Address AIDS Conference

September 8, 2011

Men who have sex with men will be the focus of this year's US Conference on AIDS -- an emphasis that is appropriate, given "the devastating impact this epidemic continues to have on gay and bisexual men, especially gay men of color," said Daniel C. Montoya, deputy executive director of the National Minority AIDS Council. NMAC hosts the meeting, which will be held Nov. 10-13 in Chicago. The opening plenary will feature keynote speaker David Furnish, chair of the Elton John AIDS Foundation; openly gay CNN anchor Don Lemon; Arizona state Sen. Jack Jackson, a gay Navajo and a member of the President's Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS; Mondo Guerra, a former "Project Runway" contestant who came out as gay and HIV-positive; and AIDS activist and Tony Award winner Jennifer Holliday.
