World AIDS Day marks one of the most gripping health epidemics in human history. With all eyes on AIDS, this day is an opportunity to acknowledge milestones achieved, and more importantly, to remind us that it's not over.
Over the weekend I read Sarah Liss's article, "The Second Coming of AIDS" and found it moving and exciting. It covers the changing course of the movement and reminds us of the importance of outrage, strength and activism. I was particularly excited to see a racialized person at the forefront of a mainstream article who was well-represented and drove his own story.
