WCQ486 19th Annual AIDS Conference with Jim Pickett

Host: Amy Matheny

Amy is very excited about our guest Jim Pickett. What were her thoughts on the Democratic National Convention last week? She also remembers the September 11th tragedies with the anniversary coming up tomorrow.

Guest: Jim Pickett returns to the Queercast to talk with Amy about the 19th International AIDS conference. The conference was held this summer and Jim discusses the biggest topics of HIV/AIDS today. How far has our community come in 30 years with the work and advocacy of people living with these illnesses? Jim also shares his story of going to the White House with a gay Nigerian colleague to listen to President Obama speak on HIV and AIDS.  For more information visit
