At AIDS 2016, the Global Village Rocks -- and Activists Party Without Pants
July 22, 2016
In my final video blog of the massive conference, I capture the international bumping and grinding at the party, where gay, straight, and transgender advocates let off some steam after a conference filled with protests, wide-scale adoption of PrEP, and stark differences in the response to HIV/AIDS among different continents.
But first, we stroll the eye-popping Global Village to meet teenage advocates, grandmothers who are caring for the children left behind by the loss of their parents, a sexually explicit prevention campaign in Thailand, and a team from Amsterdam, capital of the Netherlands, who discuss what lies ahead in their home city, which will host the next International AIDS Conference in 2018.
And now, I'll take a two-year rest until AIDS 2018 in Amsterdam. That's right, Amsterdam. Can you imagine?
Thanks for watching, and please be well.
