The Veil of HB2: Spotlighting Transgender Issues to Cover Multi-Issue Legislative Attacks

Last month, North Carolina enacted HB2, a law that targets transgender people while also broadly attacking workers and local democracy. The full implications of HB2 have not been recognized in much of the media coverage, both in terms of the specific harms to trans workers of color, particularly trans women of color, as well as the broader effect of the law on all workers in North Carolina. By recognizing the full scope of the law while also centering our strategies as advocates for the communities most impacted, we’ll be in a stronger position to fight similar bills when introduced around the country.

Behind The Scenes: A Filmmaker in San Francisco | #PrideInPrevention

Upon seeing AIDS United’s #PrideInPrevention promotion, I knew this topic hit close to home. I live in San Francisco, a city with one of the largest populations of LGBT people and highest rates of HIV in the United States. Nationally, HIV infection rates have raised 22% in gay and bisexual men since 2008 and almost 50,000 people become infected each year. In San Francisco, almost one in four gay or bisexual men is living with HIV.

The Great Disruption: Carving Out a New Path for Black Gay Men in HIV Advocacy

As we contemplate the way forward for black gay men in this country and most critically how we build a movement, it is crucial that we take a step back to consider our approach. Our approach must be rooted in a commitment to building power, which means that our work has to be community-driven, culturally relevant, and value the impact of meaningful and transformative experiences in our lives. We must have the courage to rival the breathtaking level of scientific advancement in the clinical realm with moral clarity and political will in the community realm. Policy solutions are important, as are medical strategies, but these cannot come at the expense of movement building, these things are all inseparable. Scientific advancement cannot mean our black gay men’s communities are weakened, our organizations fail and our movement leaders are replaced by programmatic managers. This cannot happen.
