This week, Positively Trans has brought a delegation to the International AIDS conference, a gathering of more than 15,000 researchers, activists and policymakers from more than 160 countries gathered in Amsterdam.
Programs Director Cecilia C. Chung wants to push trans folks, specifically trans women of color, to the center of the international community’s HIV/AIDS discussion. “We don’t need others to speak for us. We want [the global community] to see us, hear us, and count us the same way they do other key populations.”
Throughout the week, Positively Trans will feature on high profile panels, lead critical discussions that center the voices of trans leaders, and push back against dangerous single narratives about trans populations across the world surviving and thriving with HIV.
