Help END THE STIGMA of HIV

end_the_stigmaLet’s all treat each other with basic dignity. Someone who is HIV-negative is not any “cleaner” than someone who is HIV-positive. Saying you are “clean” implies a POZ person is “dirty” and that mindset fuels stigma which acts as a barrier for testing. People on HIV treatment are less likely to spread the virus compared to people who don’t know their status and, because of stigma, don’t want to find out. End Stigma and help end HIV/AIDS.

Pray For Orlando

We stand in solidarity with the LGBT community and all of the victims and families of the Orlando attack.

Saving Grace Opening Slideshow

We are very happy to share a photo slideshow from the opening of Saving Grace: HIV/AIDS in the Black Community. This very special event opened to an enthusiastic audience at the Old Dillard Museum in the Sistrunk neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale.  More pictures: click here.

Making of the Family Tree for Saving Grace

One of the artistic pieces in the Saving Grace exhibit is a family tree of related individuals affected or infected by HIV/AIDS. The branches span generations. Truly a heart-felt work, this video shows the artist collaborating and it’s transformation from start to finish. The piece moved with the rest of the exhibit to the World AIDS Museum in Wilton Manors, where it was created.
