IGLHRC Comments on the Tragic Loss of Life Aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 17

The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission issued the following comments today (7.18.14) by Executive Director Jessica Stern about the tragic loss of life aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 17:

“This is a devastating blow to the world AIDS community. When we attend the ‪AIDS conferences, we would set aside time to grieve for those who died of AIDS and ‪HIV-related complications. Today, we are in shock and mourning over the tragic loss of so many researchers and activists who dedicated their lives to the global fight against this epidemic. There are really no adequate words to express our sadness. We offer heartfelt condolences to the loved ones and colleagues of all who died and our solidarity with the global AIDS community.”
