Aids activist Zakie Achmat has always stood up for what he believes in - a trait he says grew out of having to come out as a gay person to his religious parents. "Having to take that stand made it much easier to take any other stand," he explains in a short film that will be screened in South Africa on World Aids Day on Sunday.
Aids activist Zackie Achmat features in TIME magazine's European edition as one of 35 "Heroes 2003" for his struggle to secure affordable antiretroviral drugs for South Africa's HIV/Aids sufferers.
