The National Deaf Life Museum launched a new exhibition, Left Behind: HIV/AIDS and the Deaf Community, on November 30. The centerpiece of this exhibition is four blocks on loan from the National AIDS Memorial Quilt, featuring members of the Deaf community who died during the AIDS crisis. Visitors will gain a better understanding of the magnitude of the crisis through the AIDS Quilt, and explore the impact it had on the Deaf community, especially Deaf LGBTQ+ community members.

The AIDS Quilt panels will be on display through December 16 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily at the National Deaf Life Museum in Chapel Hall. A candlelight vigil for the campus community was held on December 1 in the Sorenson Language and Communication Center Atrium.
