On December 1, we honor those we have lost to HIV/AIDS by raising awareness of the gains in HIV prevention, testing, and treatment. Your commitment to helping us end the HIV epidemic inspires the work we do at Equitas Health. World AIDS Day is a chance to reflect and prepare for the work that lies ahead. Together, we will get this done.

Inside, allies, trans-identified humans, and religious conservatives filled the lobby. I watched a large group pray for the defeat of the “trans agenda.”
