We invite attendees to bring an object or photo of importance to them as it relates to their past or present experience with HIV and AIDS.Do you have photos of the March on Washington or pieces of the AIDS Quilt? What about ACT-UP fliers, programs, or newspaper clippings? Any meeting notes, poems, stories, or songs? World AIDS Day not only enables us to remember those who have died, but it also helps us to raise awareness and show support for those living HIV+ lives. Show & Tale is Antiques Roadshow meets The Moth. It’s your favorite Pinterest board come to life! Everyone is welcome to contribute a 3-minute something. No judges, no prizes, no competition. And no need to practice! Just show your object and share its tale. Just want to show up and listen? Awesome! Observers are always welcome.
