KVAL News Series “I have HIV and…”

Over the course of February, we partnered with KVAL on a mini-series called “I have HIV and…” The series is made up of five short videos, each focusing on the respective stories of people living with HIV in Oregon. Told through their personal stories, the interviews touch on a lot of issues surrounding HIV transmission, including drug addiction, syringe exchanges, LGBTQ equality, serodiscordant relationships (couples with different HIV statuses), and stigma.

What became obvious over the course of the videos is that there is much more to someone then their HIV status, and that their diagnosis does not define who they are. You can find links to each video below
