FSU will present speaker Elaine Pasqua during the program “Living and Loving in a World with AIDS” at 7 p.m. on Dec. 4 in the Lane University Center room 201. This event is free and open to the public.
Pasqua captivates audiences with persuasive role-playing exercises and hands-on activities demonstrating the realities of HIV infection, allowing students to feel directly involved and emotionally engaged. With the increase of binge drinking on college campuses, Pasqua emphasizes that most HIV infections occur while someone is under the influence. She stresses that individuals need to remain sober so they can be clear-minded to make healthy choices. Other high-risk behaviors such as sharing of sharps, unprotected sex and sex with multiple partners are covered. A passionate and engaging storyteller, Pasqua shares the struggles of losing two parents to AIDS.
Pasqua also speaks about the issues of self-respect, protection and prevention, as well as the dishonesty that can lead people to believe they are safe from HIV.
