Mark S. King from #AIDS2016 in Durban, South Africa: of wrongful charges, sex trade advocacy and cruising the conference.

On day three of Marks video coverage of AIDS 2016 we find him chatting with former U. S. Army Colonel Ken Pinkela, who was dismissed from military service and sentenced to 11 months of military confinement after being wrongfully accused of not disclosing his HIV status to a sex partner. We also hear from Rosemary Namiburu, a nurse wrongfully imprisoned for HIV exposure via a needle and jailed for months.

Mark also chats with Elizabeth Taylor's HIV activist grandchildren, Ayanda Denge of the Sex Workers Education Advocacy Task Force, a PrEP activist from London and then with an HIV advocate from Australia who reveals that there's actually a heck of a lot of cruising going on at this conference.

Who would have thought it?
