Minnesota AIDS Project Welcomes Actress and HIV Advocate Gloria Reuben to Minneapolis.

- First in a series of three public forums on HIV -

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota AIDS Project, the leading source for HIV information and services in Minnesota, has assembled a diverse, all-star lineup for the 2008 Allan Spear Forum series that examines issues surrounding HIV policy. The first event will take place in Minneapolis on July 29, 2008, featuring entertainer Gloria Reuben who is as talented as she is passionate about HIV prevention.

Few artists can literally say that "they've done it all," but actress/singer Gloria Reuben is making a concerted bid for that elusive distinction. Over the past decade, she has amassed impressive credentials as a regular fixture on network television, including as Jeanie Boulet who battled HIV in the hit series ER. She's starred in numerous films, performed in a highly touted off-Broadway production, toured with one of pop music's most celebrated divas, and now adds recording artist to her cachet with the release of her debut record, Just for You. A gifted actress, exciting vocalist and committed activist on HIV, Reuben will address attendees on issues surrounding HIV after 25 years and her experiences as an advocate for this important issue.

The Minnesota AIDS Project produces the Spear Forums annually to address public policy issues that impact HIV. The series in named in honor of Senator Allan Spear who served Minnesota in the State Senate from 1972 through 2000 and was a key ally in the fight to stop HIV in Minnesota.

The series is free and open to the public. This event will take place at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis at 7 p.m. on July 29. For more information, please visit and also sign-up for the HIV Action Network email list to receive Spear Forum and HIV policy updates.

The Minnesota AIDS Project works statewide to prevent the spread of HIV in Minnesota and reduce the challenge of living with HIV through programs, partnerships, and initiatives to engage every member of our community to take responsibility and care about HIV.
