AIDS conference in D.C.

For the first time in 20 years, the world's largest AIDS conference was held back in the U.S. Over the weekend, an AIDS quilt lined a section of the National Mall--with celebrities, artists and area locals all coming out to support the cause and spread the word.

A man danced during Wyclef Jean's performance on Sunday afternoon. The rally attracted roughly a few thousand people, who assembled just below the Washington Monument before the march began at 4:30 p.m. Everyone was offered free bottles of water, food, and a red umbrella.
