Visual AIDS expresses solidarity and support for our various communities, particularly LGBT queer communities of color, at this tragic and harrowing time.

At a moment when the sight of two men kissing can be noted as the catalyst for one of the most fatal shooting sprees in American history, queer desire and visibility may appear to be under attack. In response, we share images of queer embrace, love, community, desire and intimacy from the Visual AIDS Artist+ Registry.

The spirit that comes from art, creativity and imagination can never be compromised.
