Positively Trans

Transgender people living with HIV are capable of forming our own network, telling our own stories, and developing our own advocacy strategies – and TLC’s Positively Trans program is the proof.

Led by trans women of color living with HIV, Positively Trans addresses inequities, stigma, and discrimination nationally and in our local communities through community-driven research, leadership development, and storytelling.

We make the case that trans voices, needs, and leadership must be centered in HIV/AIDS response, and that HIV response is a key strategy for trans health and liberation
