AIDS 2016: HIV Criminalisation activists take over the stage at Durban AIDS Conference opening ceremony

Following Justice Edwin Cameron’s Jonathan Mann Memorial Lecture at AIDS 2016 in Durban, more than 100 activists took to the stage demanding an end to HIV criminalisation. Among us – people with HIV, sex workers, and other criminalised people – were allies that included Elizabeth Taylor’s grandchildren (and great-grandchild): Laela Wilding, Finn McMurray, Rhys Tivey, and Quinn Tivey. Our chant: WE HAVE A VIRUS! WE ARE NOT CRIMINALS! END CRIMINALISATION NOW! Justice Cameron welcomed us with open arms, literally!
