Last week, India’s Supreme Court repealed Section 377 of its penal code, decriminalizing homosexuality. Today, @eltonjohn and @davidfurnish published an op-ed in @thetimesofindia, in which they spoke from the heart about what equality means to them, as well as what they’ve seen on their travels around the world. Check out the link in our bio. #377isHistory
Today is the 21st anniversary of Princess Diana’s death. We mourn her loss—as a friend, role model, and compassionate, tireless advocate.
Two of our grantees, including this team from the North Carolina AIDS Action Network, help people living with HIV get the treatment they need and advocate for Medicaid expansion. Read about their work—and the importance of expanding access to Medicaid—at the link in our bio.
“If we are really to end AIDS, we must bring those who are suffering—from illness, addiction, and isolation—back into the circle of humanity. We must recommit ourselves to providing them unconditional love and first-class care.” – @eltonjohn Despite the remarkable progress we’ve made in the fight against AIDS, our work is far from over. Read Sir Elton John’s piece in today’s @telegraph at the link in bio.
DID YOU KNOW: @AmericanAir was the first major airline to protect its LGBTQ employees from discrimination—and the first to provide domestic partner benefits? They’re also one of EJAF’s leading sponsors—and official airline—for more than twelve years. To learn more about our powerful partnership, check the link in our bio.
“The @aids_conference offers an opportunity to come together and get smarter in the fight against HIV/AIDS,” according to @davidfurnish, seen here with @eltonjohn at the conference in 2016. This year, at #AIDS2018, Sir Elton John and the Duke of Sussex @KensingtonRoyal will launch a new coalition to break the cycle of HIV transmission for men in Sub-Saharan Africa.
We are thrilled to share EJAF’s 2017 Annual Report. Link in bio.

And we take great pride in what we are achieving together with our grantees and our supporters to realize an AIDS-free world.
