Fearing No Evil
by Regan Hofmann with Oriol R. Gutierrez Jr.
David Kuria works for the Gay and Lesbian Coalition of Kenya where he risks his life daily to provide safe sanctuary and advocacy for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in Africa and around the world. Now, he is running for Kenya’s Senate. A basic tenet of his work is showing that a global push for gay rights helps bolster the fight against HIV. His dream? A day when no LGBT person has to choose between being openly gay—or being killed.

by Tim Murphy
Didier Lestrade cofounded ACT UP Paris. His life and work trace the arcs of AIDS and gay activism in France, much as those of Larry Kramer do in the United States.
