Cultural activity Film Screening

Kapana

Room
Film Screening Channel
Session Description
‘Kapana’ is a Namibian positive gay love story. In Namibia, sodomy is still a crime. As a result, gay relationships are stigmatized against. This is made worse when the person is also living with HIV. Many gay or bisexual men live in the closet. They hide their relationships and those happen often under unsafe circumstances. ‘Kapana’ follows the story of George, insurance broker, openly gay, with a supportive family and friends and his meeting with Simeon, a kapana seller (kapana is the local name for barbecued meat) who doesn’t want to accept he is gay and cannot imagine a place where he could be happy having a relationship with a man. It is a film about love and life in a country where such love is forbidden. It is a romance and we hope the film will help trigger discussions around the need to decriminalise such relationships.

Haus of Prevention by Youth Against AIDS

Room
NGO Booth Channel
Session Description
Welcome to our Haus of Prevention -- the home of Youth against AIDS (YAA). In a world impacted by major technological and societal disruptions we need to find new ways to face the HIV & STI epidemic among young generations. Many regions of the world are lacking a dedicated youth strategy that offers relevant solutions for them. We put youth at the centre in order to reach them in an authentic and credible way. We are the generation that has the potential to end AIDS and prevent new STI infections. For the first time in history we have all the tools to end this epidemic. We are committed to this goal. To achieve this, we promote sexual health among young people internationally and foster innovation in prevention to reach them with relevant services. We work day by day to improve young people's access to knowledge, protection and services and help them to live healthy lives. The focus of our work is peer to peer education, condom distribution, digital prevention & awareness campaigns. To realize our programs, we rely on collaboration. That's why we work with like-minded organizations and partner companies to make a valuable contribution to the global HIV and STI response. Our core values are based on equality, freedom and self-determination. We reach out to peers from our generation by communicating on eye-level, indifferent of social race, sexual orientation or their cultural background. The framework of our work is based on the core values of YAA: love, respect and condoms.
