NO ORDINARY AFFAIR. IAS 2017 REPORT FROM PARIS, PART TWO: U=U MAKES A HUGE SPLASH
Bob Leahy describes the U=U community’s behind-the-scenes tension and excitement at International AIDS Society 2017 conference.
“And then that same morning came cause for real celebration. The French group AIDES and Sidaction had arranged for the Mayor of Paris to meet with them at the France booth in the exhibition hall. I got there as cameras were flashing as the Mayor held a U=U t-shirt in front of her, smiling. Bruce Richman stood next to her, beaming. Paris had just signed on to U=U. Wow. Wow. Wow. Our first big moment.”
