People living with HIV attending Living 2012 sent a special video message to the people attending the Sexworker Freedom Festival in Kolkata. Living 2012 was a pre conference to AIDS2012, the International AIDS Conference in Washington DC. However, as the USA prohibits sex workers, drug users as well as people with a criminal record to enter the country, Living 2012 as well as AIDS2012, missed many of the voices of these key populations affected by HIV. We decided to send a special message to those who could not attend Living 2012. See other videos in the LINKING section.
