Tertulia – Lessons from the AIDS Crisis with Karen Pearlston & Jessi Taylor
Our next Tertulia features Karen Pearlston and Jessi Taylor on Lessons from the AIDS Crisis for the Coronavirus Crisis on Wednesday, June 3 at 7:00pm (Atlantic time) by Zoom.
The AIDS epidemic is not over, just forgotten by too many. Similar to Covid-19, the AIDS epidemic did and does treat some people as disposable. Yet many of the lessons learned by queer AIDS activists have been forgotten.
Karen Pearlston is a Professor of Law at UNB on traditional and unceded Wulustukyik territory.
Jessi Taylor teaches in the Dept of Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice at the U of British Columbia and lives on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples–Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations
Karen and Jessi are long-time activists working on issues of reproductive justice, sexual health, HIV/AIDS activism, and sex worker’s rights, among many others. They first met as activists with Reproductive Justice NB and are both active with the Campaign to Save Clinic 554.

What is a tertulia? A tertulia can be described as a literary and artistic social gathering or philosophy cafe where participants talk about ideas. Tertulias combine words, music, poetry, art and whatever else speakers want to share.
