Face of HIV Art Unveiling
EVERYONE is the face of HIV. Many people think HIV only impacts certain people, but the reality is that HIV impacts everyone. HIV does not discriminate against age, class, race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation. It captures everyone and it takes a community to end HIV stigma. It’s time for each of us to recognize our role in ending stigma and stopping the spread of HIV. Approximately 710 people in Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent live with HIV. The ACW has collected 710 photographs of people in our community who are living with, impacted by, or supporting someone with HIV, either personally or professionally. These photos have been used to create a unique art piece that will be displayed at Bike Windsor Essex, at 101 University Avenue West, on December 1st and 2nd.
