The AIDS2010 theme, "Rights Here, Right Now," took center stage on day three, with speakers, seminars and events focused on how important human rights are the the AIDS equation.

And sexual minorities must be respected in order for them to be granted equal access to prevention and treatment services.

In this video blog update, I give you a better look of the city of Vienna, as we venture out from the conference center for a reception with AIDS leaders, and then one of the most exciting events of the conference -- the human rights march and rally through the streets of Vienna, concluded with a performance by recording star and AIDS activist Annie Lennox.

Video after the jump!
