One of the most beautiful art experiences I know of in the New York area is completely free, in a gorgeous, amazingly comfortable setting, and will be on display until January 31, 2015. It is of the captivating, sometimes lighter than air, other times heavy as mortality, art of Eric Rhein.
San Francisco, once the epicenter of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, has since made great strides in reducing HIV transmission and implementing prevention policies. On this year's World AIDS Day, San Francisco's Getting to Zero Coalition unveiled a draft strategic plan.

Bruce, for us, for the greatest fans in rock and roll, do your hair up pretty, and meet us tonight, and night after night, with the band that wasn't just born to run; but was built to last. Remember, it was your original consigliere, Mr. Van Zandt, and not Sting, who said, "Rock and roll, it's a band thing."
Kudos to the artists who quickly filled in for U2 frontman Bono at the recent World AIDS Day event in New York City. Billed on the band's website as ...
As we mark continued progress in reaching an AIDS-free generation, I want to introduce you to Guilhermina Marcos. She is among nearly 200 lay counselors, who go door-to- door, bringing HIV testing and counseling services to Mozambicans where they live.

We at the NAACP are focused on infusing social justice within public health and disease prevention. HIV/AIDS is a fight that we cannot afford to lose. Too much is at stake. Silence is not an option. Our collective message of social justice, HIV prevention, and frequent testing must ring throughout our homes and schools and in our barbershops, hair salons and churches.
Ensuring that all people living with HIV have access to prevention, care and treatment services must continue to be the focus of our HIV and AIDS ministries both here at home and abroad. We encourage Lutherans and Episcopalians everywhere to support efforts to provide resources towards treatment.
