How Can I Help Raise HIV Awareness?
This June, we are going to focus on bringing more awareness to HIV/AIDS, while emphasizing the unity, pride, and self-love that makes this community so strong. Living with HIV/AIDS is not easy, and through our interactions with the community, we've seen how beneficial it can be to have a place where encouragement, positivity, and love are on display. Let's take this month to focus on all things self-love!
Let's start by reading a quote from an article written by one of our advocates, JT Otis:
"When we learn to love ourselves we are doing things that give us time to become intimate with ourselves. We are developing a fond affection for all the things that make us unique."
To show our love for the community, we are excited to share that H-I-V.net will be doing a giveaway this month!
