Beyond Testing: Empowering Women to Pursue Healthy Lives

While I still have a lot to learn and do during my service, I appreciate each moment with my clients. I am part of a conversation; an exploration of a complex yet often overlooked human experience. While subtle, I can see that I am offering something beyond testing – I’m offering dignity, a break from fear, from the unknown, and from stigma.

Behind The Scenes: A Filmmaker in San Francisco | #PrideInPrevention

Upon seeing AIDS United’s #PrideInPrevention promotion, I knew this topic hit close to home. I live in San Francisco, a city with one of the largest populations of LGBT people and highest rates of HIV in the United States. Nationally, HIV infection rates have raised 22% in gay and bisexual men since 2008 and almost 50,000 people become infected each year. In San Francisco, almost one in four gay or bisexual men is living with HIV.

One Ounce of Truth: The Collective Power of AIDSWatch 2015

Stop! I immediately thought of HOPWA (Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS) and the truth we were striving to share with members of Congress on April 14, 2015. Four hundred advocates from thirty states and Puerto Rico were about to converge on Capitol Hill as part of AIDSWatch 2015. One of my peers said, “You cannot stay adherent to medications if you are homeless.” Another said, ”There are currently fifty thousand households served by HOPWA while 1.2 million people in America live with HIV.”

At the Intersection of Health & Social Justice: the Transgender Health Summit 2015

The collective energy and excitement among participants at the 2015 Transgender Health Summit was obvious upon our arrival. During the opening plenary, we learned that the due to community demand, the conference had nearly doubled in attendance since the previous conference. This growth parallels the long overdue attention to the needs and realities of transgender people in the US in regards to HIV prevention and treatment. AIDS United served as a sponsor of the event, and I felt proud to be a part of a team that added to the success of this important gathering.
