Thursday, March 6
7:30 to 9:30 pm
Eric Bartley, AIDS activist and Housing Works, Inc. Board of Directors member

Perry N. Halkitis, Applied Psychology, Public Health & Medicine and Global Institute of Public Health, New York University
This panel moves off from Perry Halkitis’s recently published book, The AIDS Generation: Stories of Survival and Resilience, to discuss some of the strategies for survival and coping employed by the first generation of gay male long-term survivors of the disease. Through interviews conducted by Halkitis, the book narrates the stories of gay men who have survived since the early days of the epidemic; documents and delineates the strategies and behaviors enacted by men of this generation to survive it; and examines the extent to which these approaches to survival inform and are informed by the broad body of literature on resilience and health.
