The San Francisco AIDS Foundation will hold a free community forum tonight to examine current thinking on HIV and alcohol. Forum participants will include SFAF CEO Neil Giuliano; the director of research at the city Department of Public Health's HIV prevention section, Dr. Susan Buchbinder; SFAF's director of behavioral health sciences, Michael Siever, PhD; and Lookout bar owner Chris Hastings. The meeting will examine how alcohol affects HIV risk and HIV health, and how city officials and others are addressing this "forgotten drug" in the context of HIV/AIDS. The forum will take place 6-8 p.m. at the LGBT Community Center, 1800 Market St. For more information, visit
