AIDS 2008, Wednesday Aug 6

On Wednesday we have an outreach program by José Antonio Domínguez, the visually impaired president of Voluntad Para AIDA. He was assisted by his colleague Enrique Silva. José Antonio brought along eye masks and a bag of condoms to give people an idea of what it was like for blind and visually impaired people to negotiate the details of condoms and sex and the implications that had for the spread of HIV/AIDS. He gave his very lively presentation in Spanish to an enthusiastic group of AIDS 2008 Global village visitors. Donald Pilling and I didn't put masks on so we could see our ASL interpreter, Alexis Martinez and got to see exactly how the other audience members reacted to his program, a short version of a play he has been doing for over a year.
