Then, we'll be talking with Latino HIV/AIDS organizer and educator Marco Castro-Bojorquez. Marco is a LGBT activist and an impact filmmaker focusing on marginalized communities, elevating the experiences immigrant people, especially those who are undocumented, LGBTQ people, with emphasis on transgender women of color, people living with HIV/AIDS, POC communities, youth and young adults, women, sex workers, people struggling with mental health, people who inject drugs, and people with different abilities. His work anchors at weaving together these interconnected struggles - and in doing so, intentionally challenge toxic masculinity, racism, homophobia, transphobia, and other “isms” that threaten our collective wellbeing.
Marco will be joining us to discuss HIV 2020 For All, a segment of a a grassroots-led movement to foster cross-national organizing around HIV & AIDS, including organizing an alternative to the US-hosted International AIDS Conference in 2020,
