Through Positive Eyes:
My Photo, My HIV Story
Engage in a virtual photography discussion around self-portraits captured by people living with HIV over the years with Through Positive Eyes, exploring stigma and the role each of us can play in ending it. This session frames the discussion in the context of the HIV epidemic across the globe, efforts that are underway to combat the disease, and how stigma continues to be a barrier.

WHAT TO EXPECT
LENGTH: 60 minutes
Whether you want to leave your mics on or engage with your group in the chatbox, this stimulating discussion explores how HIV artivists use self-portraits to depict this epidemic, and the impact it has had on their lives.
This virtual program uses writing and reflection-based activities to explore the themes of Through Positive Eyes and the compelling images that make up the collaborative photo-storytelling project.
Powerful stories bring powerful topics – including sexuality, drugs, abuse, and experiencing intolerance that may not be suitable for some. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected].
