A POZ Q&A with director David France:
David France’s new film about the history of AIDS treatment activism lit up the Sundance Film Festival—and hopes to inspire a new generation of HIV activists.
The POZ 100-The Soldiers
All wars—hot, cold and metaphorical—are won or lost on the front lines. The fight against HIV/AIDS is no different. Without the science—a cure, a vaccine and other biomedical prevention—the battle cannot be won. However, the science is only half the battle.
We’ll need leadership to get funding to implement those tools. We’ll also need legions of fighters to defend the dignity of people living with the virus, which includes a world without stigma and discrimination.

Twenty-seven people participated in this morning’s How To Survive A Plague Meet-Up. Great dialogue on advocacy, systemic change, and honoring the past with forward movement. The session ended with a commitment from the group: “The world is watching and this is what they will see, that we are greater than AIDS.”
