This the second of three panel discussions hosted by Living Walls, free of cost to the community. The next one will be Tuesday 7/23 @ Church Annex.

These events will include a series of discussions, from June through August, led by groups in the LGBTQ+ community and experts on HIV to speak on various HIV topics.

The goal of these events, panels, and conversations is to humanize a condition that still holds so much stigma and inspire the art for the mural that will be unveiled at the end of the series.

💕 We are partnering with Southern Fried Queer Pride, WUSSY MAG, MORPH, La Choloteca: Ley de Latinx, and Out Front Theatre Company to make this whole project happen. 💕
