QUEEROCRACY is an activist organization cultivating the leadership of queer folks and people living with HIV/AIDS in NYC. Through direct action organizing, membership led advocacy campaigns, educational trainings and political art and media we challenge and fight back against the existing structures that thrive on the punishment of positive and queer folks. QUEEROCRACY is dedicated to ending the AIDS crisis and the stigma, discrimination and criminalization that fuel its existence.

WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
We are always looking for new perspectives and ideas. Please join us at our bi-weekly general meetings, currently focusing on our Prevention Vs. Prosecution Project, a campaign against HIV criminalization. We usually meet every 1st and 3rd (and 5th when applicable) Thursday of each month at the LGBT Center in Manhattan from 7:30 - 9:00 PM.
We also have 3 meetings every month for our newest program, YLEGAL. YLEGAL gatherings are *usually* held on select Tuesdays at the office for the New York State Youth Leadership Council in Manhattan from 6:00 - 8:00 PM.
