HIV Day: selfies as a way to fight stigma
HIV Day is an annual event during which people who live with an open face “share part of their day” by posting selfies in an online gallery.
This is 24 hours in the lives of people who are HIV positive. The main goal is to break the stigma. And to give hope and support to those who have only recently learned about their diagnosis and are in the process of acceptance.
Happy faces in photographs, ordinary or interesting life – the same as everyone else. And looking at people with HIV from all over the world, so different, unusual, beautiful and original, you are once again convinced that HIV is definitely not the end of the world.
Just live with HIV, just be happy and healthy, just do what you love. And remember that you are not alone!
You can see photos of other people and send your own on the Day with HIV page. Or check out the adaywithhiv hashtag.
