Stories Behind the Sign
Everyone has a story. In the 31 years of the HIV epidemic, we are all in some way affected by HIV - whether we are living with HIV, a friend, a loved one of someone with HIV, a caregiver, or a community member. Through the Facing AIDS photo initiative, thousands of people have shared a sentence from the story about why he/she is Facing AIDS: to fight stigma. To raise awareness and remember those who we have lost.


These photos/messages are just a piece of a powerful story. This year, the fifth year of Facing AIDS, 46% of adult internet users are creators of original photo or video content that they post online.
