ending the stigma surrounding hiv & aids

if you didn't get a chance to watch the webcast live, you can watch it here:

my big moment is near the end where i sneak joshua the questions . . . under the table.

it was a beautiful experience for me. at the end, when the tapes quit rolling the whole room erupted in thunderous applause. it might sound out there to say, but it felt like there were way more voices than just the 10 of us in the room. i had this vision of all of those people who died because of stigma cheering with us. i hope this really is part of the beginning of a new dawn concerning this disease (and really all the other stigmatized diseases eg, mental illness)
