Panelists at New Orleans Public Library's Norman Mayer branch discuss the history of HIV and AIDS in New Orleans at an event Wednesday night.

Dr. Russ Burkett, attorney Mark Gonzalez and Crescent Care executive director Noel Twilbeck will discuss their experiences battling the HIV/AIDS crisis. Such discussions are locally relevant in a state with one of the country's highest rates of new infections; some public health experts have speculated that HIV transmission may be on the rise as cultural memory of the worst of the crisis fades.

The panel begins at 6 p.m. It's free to attend, and event sponsors LGBT+ Archives Project of Louisiana provide wine.
