The 23rd International AIDS Conference kicked off Monday with a display of panels from the AIDS Memorial Quilt at San Francisco and Oakland City Halls.

The display marked the launch of a new AIDSmemorial.org web platform that will feature all 48,000 panels from the quilt, and given visitors the ability to search for the names of those it memorializes and learn their stories.

It also evokes the history of the quilt, the first panels of which were displayed at San Francisco City Hall in 1987.

The AIDS conference is largely virtual this year, but is based in San Francisco. It will continue through July 10.
