Africa: We Have Penises! We Have Vaginas!

[What’sUpHIV] In the staid lobby of the Durban International Conference Centre, a woman in a wheelchair is shouting: “I have a penis! I have a vagina! I have sex!” Stella Iwuagwu, 47, from Lagos, is trying to animate a group of disability protesters standing politely with their placards standing a wall. “It’s a silent protest,” replies one. They are trying to draw attention to how the AIDS 2016 conference excludes disabled people. Most of the protesters have some form of disability but not all are HIV positive.
