Guest Speaker: Adebisi Alimi

Bisi Alimi -  TEDxBerlin "The Next Step"

In 2004, Bisi Alimi was an up-and-coming actor in Nigeria, and a student newspaper threatened to publish a photo with his then-boyfriend.
So, he decided to break his own news and come out on a popular morning television program. He was also diagnosed with HIV in the same year.
Faced with constant threats, violence, and an attempt on his life, he left Nigeria for the U.K. in 2007.
He is an LGBT advocate and HIV activist. He is now a New Voices Fellow at the Aspen Institute.
He will join us to speak and take questions at the DC Center at 8:30 p.m. on Friday.
 
We are at 2000 14th St. NW, Ste. 105, at the Reeves Center, and the entrance is on U Street. If you have any difficulty getting into the building, call my cell phone at (617) 877-5484.
