Outrageous Oral Volume 3: The Dallas Way GLBT History Project

Description: This video recording presents Outrageous Oral Volume 3. For this event, attendees welcomed members of The Dallas Way GLBT History Project to the University of North Texas (UNT) campus. This is a group of community members dedicated to preserving the history of gay life in Dallas, and their Outrageous Oral events bring together artists, activists, and civic leaders to share their stories of life as gay people in the DFW area, pre-Stonewall, pre-DADT, and during the first cataclysmic years of the AIDS Epidemic. These oral histories are alternately hilarious and compelling, heartwarming and devastating. The Digital Scholarship Cooperative (DiSCo) and the UNT Libraries join the students of Glad: UNTs Queer Alliance, and the UNT Multicultural Center in bringing these stories to campus on National Coming Day (October 11, 2012), to help build bridges between UNT and the community, and between generations of gay and trans men and women. The UNT Libraries will be represented tonight by Arturo Ortega, who will share stories of what it was like growing up in Laredo, Texas.

Global HIV/AIDS Epidemic: Selection of Antiretroviral Medications Provided Under U.S. Emergency Plan Is Limited

Description: A letter report issued by the Government Accountability Office with an abstract that begins "In developing countries, only about 7 percent of people with HIV/AIDS receive treatment. In 2003, the Congress authorized the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, a 5-year, $15 billion initiative under the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator. The Emergency Plan focuses on 15 developing countries, with a goal of supporting treatment for 2 million people. Treatment regimens use multiple antiretroviral medications (ARV), which can be original or generic. Fixed-dose combinations (FDC) combine two or three ARVs into one pill. Questions have been raised about whether the plan is providing ARVs preferred by the focus countries at reasonable prices. GAO compared the selection of ARVs provided under the plan with that provided under other major treatment initiatives, compared the prices of those selections, and determined what the Coordinator's Office is doing to expand the plan's selection of quality-assured lower-priced ARVs."
