HIV Beautiful : Art for social change

As a growing art-activist, I believe art can be used as a tool for social change.

 

Below are various illustrations dedicated to informing people about HIV facts, myths, social struggles and a homage to those involved in the movement. All of these illustrations are inspired by the people, in different communities around the world, who advocate, march, educate and uplift their peers.

 

With the mass amount of stigma behind HIV in our communities and the health disparities throughout the nation, it is important to me to be one of the many voices that help de-stigmatize these issues and connect people to the resources they need. HIV/AIDS  is a human rights issue and it's our duty to support those

who are impacted by HIV.

I hope that I can continue to evolve and develop my creative skills to become a stronger champion for marginalized communities.

 

A lot more illustrations to come!

S3Ep8|'Let's Talk about PrEP'
 ft. Kevin Herwig of CRI

ºF-TV had the honor to chat with Kevin Herwig of the Community Research Initiative organization (CRI) about PrEP.

 

PrEP, is a daily pill that helps prevent people who are HIV negative from getting the HIV infection. Kevin explained the brief history of PrEP, its value and importance in our community, how stigma and other social issues effect people from getting resources they need and how CRI can help people pay for PrEP and more.

 

Tune in to find out more about PrEP facts, myths, its importance and how CRI can help connect you with the resources you need and deserve. Connect with the Community Research Initiative (CRI) by visiting their website at www.crine.org or contacting them at 617-502-1700.
