  • CHV LGBTQ Inter-Generational Symposium
  • Find LGBTQ stories here, talking about our lives as LGBTQ people and allies.
  • View a video of a conversation that Capitol Hill Village recently hosted—Exploring the AIDS Pandemic and Understanding How Pandemics Target Groups. Three panelists shared their expertise and personal connections to the topic—Dixcy Bosley-Smith, Geriatric Care Manager/ Nurse Practitioner at Iona Senior Services, end of life activist, and founding staff of Joseph’s House for homeless people with AIDS; Christopher Behan, a family therapist and co-founder of Peabody House in Portland, ME, a six-bed hospice for people living with AIDS; and Rachel Hong, an historian and activist.Behan posed the questions: “Whose bodies will be sacrificed? What does it say about who we value and who we do not?”—questions that he found himself asking during the AIDS pandemic and the current COVID-19 pandemic. To hear the full conversation, click here.
