The Graying of AIDS in Durban


Everyone loves Sithandizele, our first participant from Botswana!

In July, the Graying of AIDS team attended the International AIDS Conference in Durban for our third installment of creating portraits and collecting oral histories on aging and HIV/AIDS. Over the course of five super productive and stimulating days we were able to interview and photograph some amazing people from Botswana, Canada, India, Jamaica, Mauritania, Mexico, Namibia, Scotland, South Africa, Sweden, Tanzania, Uganda, the United States, and Zimbabwe for the ongoing Stories From An Aging Pandemic archive.

Home run… The Graying of AIDS project’s Well Beyond HIV exhibit opened in NYC, capping quite a year for the traveling installation we produced for Walgreens. Now on to next things, after toasting new friends in person and larger than life size.

Thanks to POZ Magazine and Walgreens for hosting! Here’s a video and many more pics from the evening.

Introducing Well Beyond HIV

I am thrilled to share the latest adventure in The Graying of AIDS project’s ongoing saga: we just launched a new collaboration with Walgreens, a national pharmacy chain that has been committed to HIV treatment and testing over many years. This month saw the Miami debut of Well Beyond HIV, a traveling exhibition and campaign featuring personal narratives and portraits of people living and aging with HIV.

This promises to be a great opportunity to reach new audiences and draw attention to the aging of the epidemic, and we’re super excited to find out where this project is going to keep going. For now, next step: San Francisco!! Go team!!

It’s wonderful to see that the original body of work from The Graying of AIDS project, created almost ten years ago for Time Magazine, is still finding new audiences – most recently in Spring Breeze Magazine / China Press for Persons with Disability.

A new home for Stories From a Graying Pandemic

Speaking of a new on-line presentation for our growing collection of stories…  while we are freshly inspired by our experiences at AIDS2014 and at Photograpy Expanded to seek additional funding to support future creative collaboration and development of a more intuitive, user-friendly web archive, for now we have migrated our site over to a more easily searchable and downloadable temporary home at Bye-bye, tumblr. It was good while it lasted. Back to WordPress.


We launched this interim site on World AIDS Day and will continue to tweak and expand on content and functionalities in the coming year. There are still more portraits and interviews left to edit from Australia, and longer versions of many interviews will be added over time!
