Transgender women talk love, life, & HIV in new 'Greater Than AIDS' campaign

Today, Greater Than AIDS launched a new campaign Empowered: Trans Women & HIV, a video series giving a diverse group of transgender women, some living with HIV and others not, a platform to share their experiences in an intimate and inspiring dialogue.

Transgender women are among those at highest risk for HIV today. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that more than 1 in 4 transgender women, more than half of whom are Black transgender women, are living with HIV. Globally, transgender women are nearly 50 times more likely to be living with HIV compared to other populations. 

By sharing their common and unique experiences, the women featured in this compaign confront the social stigma associated with HIV while promoting ways for people to be proactive and take action to improve their health and well-being. 

In this powerful 20-minute group conversation and in shorter individual profile videos, the women featured in this campaign share honest stories of love, life, and HIV while empowering themselves, each other, and all of us.
