"Gay Day" at AIDS 2012 in Washington, D.C.
A Video Blog

By Mark S. King

July 22, 2012

Here is my first report from the International AIDS Conference in Washington, D.C.!

Since less than 5 percent of the programming for AIDS 2012 is targeting to MSMs (Men who have Sex with Men), a special one-day pre-conference is held the day AIDS 2012 convenes to address the needs and issues of this population.

My report includes a chat with United States Rep. Barbara Lee, who has just introduced comprehensive HIV prevention and anti-stigma legislation; the advocates fighting laws that criminalize people with HIV; a little social research on Grindr (the gay man's cruise phone app); a chat with Positive Frontiers editor Alex Garner about getting rejected (and rejected others) during the dating process; and a visit to a poz social event.

Stay tuned! The week is just getting started, with opening ceremonies to come, the opening of the colorful and provocative Global Village, and amazing sights and people ahead.

Thanks for watching, and please be well.
