ACT UP Raises HIV Prevention at Occupy Wall Street Protest
Thousands of participants in the Occupy Wall Street protest have been
joined by LGBT and HIV/AIDS social justice groups such as Queer Rising,
Queeroracy and ACT UP, Gay City News reports. Their participation is an
effort to put LGBT and HIV/AIDS issues into the broader context of
opposition to corporate greed and unchecked Wall Street power. Many LGBT
protesters point out that the financial crisis created by the banks is
sapping money from HIV prevention and other health issues.
