Safe sex is a way to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. But it’s not only about prevention. We also spend a lot of time thinking about how to support HIV+ people and how common myths & stereotypes about HIV hurt not just people living with the disease, but hurt us all.

It's July is National HIV Awareness month, here is part four of the five part series about HIV Myths & Stereotypes, Youth Visions of Healing from HIV & a piece memorializing loved ones who passed from AIDS.  We produced & edited these pieces as part of a team effort with two classes at Oakland High School, along with some special contributions from a youth group in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Big thank you’s go out to all the youth who shared their skills! Special thanks to Tara Asciutto & Eric Bagabengani for leading the collaborating groups.
