Trans- & Gender Diverse-relevant sessions at AIDS 2022

As one of the Civil Society Partners on the AIDS 2022 Conference Organizing Committee, GATE has compiled a calendar of sessions taking place during the pre-conferences and Conference that are relevant to trans and gender diverse communities. This calendar includes sessions in which trans and gender diverse speakers (including 2 Spirit people) are presenting, and sessions that focus on trans and gender diverse communities and related research.

We’re delighted that there are currently 16 pre-conference sessions and 33 conference sessions included on this calendar, highlighting a significant increase of trans- and gender-diverse-relevant sessions during the AIDS 2022 Conference and Pre-Conferences.

If we have missed a session that you think should be included on this calendar, i.e. the speakers are trans or gender diverse, or trans and gender diverse issues are addressed within the session, please contact comms@gate.ngo and we will add the session to the calendar.

Please note: This calendar does not include sessions that are taking place in the trans networking zone TRANSport Hub in the Global Village. You can find details of TRANSport Hub sessions here.
