Town hall discussion about HIV is "For All Ages"
People living with HIV come from all walks of life, but they can often feel alone in their experience. Sometimes the divide can be generational, with long-term survivors of HIV and younger people more recently diagnosed feeling cut off from each other. TPAN is hosting a town hall-style forum to bring both groups together to share their experiences of life with HIV.
"For All Ages — An Intergenerational Conversation About Life With HIV" will be held Thursday, May 9, 7–9 p.m. at Gallery Victor Armendariz, 300 W. Superior Street. (The gallery is located at the northwest corner of Superior and Franklin streets; take the CTA Brown Line to Chicago Avenue.)
In addition, “guest experts”—TPAN staff members and other professionals from various fields serving people living with HIV—will also be on hand to help address specific questions or issues raised during the discussion.
“This is an opportunity for those of us living with HIV to learn from each other and discover that we have common ground,” said Rick Guasco, organizer of “For All Ages,” and a long-term HIV survivor himself. Guasco has been living with HIV for more than 27 years and is the designer of TPAN’s HIV treatment magazine, Positively Aware.
“With today’s effective medications, every person living with HIV has the potential to become a long-term survivor,” he added. “You are not alone.”
