as Day 1 of the Trump presidency. Congress is also in Republican control, the Supreme Court is set to do the same, and the Democratic Party seems more willing to point fingers at transgender people – among others – for their defeat. This is not the recipe for securing transgender rights. So 2016 was bad, and 2017 will likely be a lot worse. It makes one want to despair. Let me tell you one key thing, however. That’s exactly what our opponents want. While they will certainly try, the only thing they cannot stop is each of us. It becomes all the more important that we stand and fight back. If you are a transgender person,

HIV cure research

“If we’re only getting peripheral blood draws, we’re never going to see these specialized subsets of cells,” said Hunt, who studies HIV-infected cells in tissue biopsy samples. Furthermore, just one out of every million T-cells in the body is latently infected with HIV. “There are 4 million people in the Bay Area. There might be one in San Jose, one in Oakland, one in San Francisco, and one in San Mateo,” said Warner Greene, director of UCSF’s Gladstone Institute of Virology and Immunology. “Our challenge is to study those four cells amongst the millions and millions of other cells, and further to attack and kills those cells without harming any of the other cells.” Researchers in San Francisco have been “very fortunate to have many volunteers from the community who are willing to share their blood with us through leukapheresis,” a process that extracts specific types

take what little time is left before Trump takes office January 20 and get your papers in order. Seek out resources like http://www.translawhelp.com and get your U.S. passport and Social Security paperwork in order while you can. If you are in a position where you can support translawhelp.com and other transgender organizations, please do so. You may wish to also support larger groups like Planned Parenthood, which is now starting to offer trans-related services, or the American Civil Liberties Union, which is gearing up to fight in Texas over its ACA ruling as well as anything done to harm people from the incoming administration. If you can provide support of any type to your transgender siblings

and others who will be marginalized further under the incoming administration, now is the time to lend your hand. Stand with each of us who are and will be in need. There’s one more important thing to do: stay alive. There are many on the right who would like to see us go away, and that includes seeing us dead. To that end, they’re doing all they can to make our lives a struggle. It is up to each of us to resist, and even just continuing to be our wonderful selves fights against their desires. Let’s make 2017 the year we fight back.t

Lava Mae launches new project

Gwen Smith will stand with you if you’ll stand with her. You can find her at www.gwensmith.com.

Lava Mae, the nonprofit that helps homeless people by providing showers in re-commissioned buses, is launching a new project called Coming Clean San Francisco and will have an event Friday, January 13 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Fouladi Projects, 1803 Market Street. Deborah Schneider, director of marketing and business partnerships for Lava Mae, said in a news release that Coming Clean San Francisco is a multi-media exhibition amplifying the intimate experience of homelessness through the artists’ lens. It’s based on a shared belief that art – as a cultural tool – has the capacity to elicit a “visceral, almost cellular reaction in a way information cannot,” Schneider noted, “challenging us to push beyond the stereotypes that frame our current perspectives.” The project features a range of well-established Bay Area artists, including Amy Wilson Faville, Elizabeth Lo, and Danielle Nelson Mourning. “Our goal with Coming Clean San Francisco is to use artistic insight to begin to shift the broader community’s relationship with people moving through homelessness – from

of cell from large volumes of blood, Greene added. “It is these types of precious, precious cells that form the gold standard for our studies.” UCSF professor Steven Deeks discussed the challenges of applying the work of researchers in the laboratory to the community of people with HIV in the clinic, and vice versa. “We almost invariably find out things we didn’t think would happen that require explanation, and the institute allows us to seamlessly take observations from clinical trials right back into the lab to answer those questions as they come up in real time,” Deeks said. “There’s a synergistic relationship between the community, the clinicians, and the basic scientists which I honestly think does not work as well anywhere else.” Testing new approaches will eventually require study participants to temporarily interrupt antiretroviral treatment with close monitoring to see if the virus bounces back, because researchers do not yet know how to

measure the reservoir directly. A study starting in early 2017 will test GS-9620, a TLR7 agonist from Gilead Sciences that turns on immune responses, Deeks said. Researchers will later test a TLR9 drug as a backup plan, and therapeutic vaccine trials will probably start in about a year. “I do not think we’re going to cure people with a single drug ... it’s going to require a combination approach.” Deeks predicted. “People often ask me when we’ll cure HIV. I have no idea, but I think we’re going to have a combination regimen that’s viable and testable” by the end of the first five-year funding cycle. “No one in 1993 had any idea we’d be actually able to control the virus, but yet three years later we did,” Deeks continued. “Where we are with [cure] science is like where we were [with treatment] in the late 1980s and early 1990s. We’re beginning to have a vision of what a combination regimen might look like and have started working in that direction.”t

no new job in the wings or anything, but I’m really going to try to take some time off and decompress and get my energy back and then figure out what I want to do,” he said. According to the organization’s 2014 Form 990, Ferrer’s total compensation was $283,283.t
