In this, the first of daily video blogs from AIDS2010 in Vienna, I'm taking you along to meet leaders from the gay response to HIV/AIDS. You'll hear from Michel Sidibe of the United Nations, saying that a world in which gay men face discrimination "is not a society I want to live in." We'll attend workshops together, on topics such as aging, or the role of HIV+ gay men in the AIDS struggle. And you'll meet advocates like Jim Pickett of Chicago, who has been working on the development of lubricants that kill the HIV virus without condoms.
It's only been one day and I'm already tired and energized at once. Keep tuning in (daily video postings on MyFabulousDisease.com). Coming up: the spectacle of the AIDS2010 Global Village, featuring artists, exhibits, and colorful advocates from around the globe.
