Does HIV Look Like Me?

Does HIV Look Like Me?

Date: March 29, 2012
Location: TLC 1305
Time: 7:00pm

According to the Center of Disease Control there are over 1.2 million people living with HIV or AIDS in the United States. Each year over 55,000 Americans, half under the age of 25, are infected with HIV. It is estimated that one out of every five individuals of those living with HIV or AIDS, do not know they are infected.

DOES HIV LOOK LIKE ME? is presented by young people living with HIV or AIDS. The event includes an informative HIV and AIDS 101, the talent sharing their story of being diagnosed and living with the disease and always time for questions and answers. The talent will offer a variety of diverse stories with information and a personal connection to young people by sharing their unique perspective and the realities of their own life of living, not dying, with the disease.

DOES HIV LOOK LIKE ME? is encouraging young people to know their status and end stigma and discrimination against those living with the disease-all without using fear.
