LESBIAN AVENGERS 25

Printed on vinyl banners, and designed to be installed anywhere from the rusty fence outside your local handball court to the fanciest gallery, our bilingual mobile exhibit tells the story of the Lesbian Avengers who kicked off twenty-five years ago with a daring action encouraging elementary school children to "Ask about Lesbian Lives" and ended up launching a worldwide lesbian movement.

WEACT-X FOR HOPE & THE TUBEHO PROJECT

WE-ACTx is an international community-based HIV/AIDS initiative. The project was launched in 2003, when a group of frontline AIDS physicians, activists and researchers responded to an urgent global appeal from Rwandan genocide survivors for help accessing AIDS medications.

WE-ACTx now offers highly integrated medical and psychosocial services, free of charge, for over 2,000 women and children living with HIV and AIDS from two locally-staffed clinical sites in Kigali.
