IN THE LIFE TV PRESENTS "AIDS IS STILL A BIG DEAL"
On Sunday, December 21, at midnight, KCTS-TV, Channel 9, broadcasts In The Life's monthly news magazine, which, this month, looks at the current state of HIV/AIDS and the continuing effort to educate and communicate the peril it still presents. (You can also view this episode online at your convenience.)

Alarmed at the rise of high-risk behavior among HIV+ young Gay men, a collaboration of New York Public Health professionals and New York University has produced an innovative web-based campaign telling the story of a young Gay man in New York City who meets sex partners on the internet. In this new approach to HIV/AIDS awareness, In the Life asks whether a web-based serial can affect the behavior of the men who watch it.

Denied admission to the Foreign Service in 2003, Lorenzo Taylor, with the aid of Lambda Legal, sued Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for discrimination in the workplace. As part of their pioneering documentation of the many faces of HIV/AIDS, In the Life revisits and updates the case that spurred the lifting of the ban in February 2008, less than 2 weeks before it went to trial.

In recognition of World AIDS Day, December 1, Dr. Mathilde Krim, Founding Chairman of the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) and Phil Wilson, founder and CEO of the Black AIDS Institute, in their first on-camera discussion, relate their tireless efforts in the fight against AIDS and reflect on the current state of the pandemic. www.inthelifetv.org

Cover is $5, $3 with a non-perishable food item for Northwest Harvest. Must be 21+ with valid ID.
