It's time for a tour of the heart and soul of the International AIDS Conference in D.C.: The Global Village. This massive hall is the only part of the conference open to the public, and it has a grassroots feel, crafted from the love and devotion of hundreds of community groups that are doing "the work on the ground" in cities and small towns throughout the world.
All I can say is, thank God I'm a video blogger, because words escape me when trying to describe the colors and displays, and most importantly, the committed people behind it all. You're about to meet drag queens who make their living handing out condoms, sex workers demanding an end to criminalization, a stunning photo exhibit from the Ukraine ... the list goes on.
Why wait? Take a look at my video report. Welcome to the Global Village!
Thanks for watching, and please be well.
