Love Positive Women: HIV & Women:
Too often the conversation about HIV/AIDS does not include the impact it has on women or individuals who identify within the feminine spectrum – including transgender, gender non-conforming, and womyn – who represent the highest rates of HIV seroconversion. Beyond health statistics, increased levels of discrimination and criminalization trends have disproportionately affected women of color. This panel discussion brings women to the center of the conversation, providing a critical examination of the causes and effects the impact of HIV/AIDS has on their lives. Panelists include Lesherri James (Affinity Community Services), Jackie Boyd (The Care Plan), Teyanna Veasy (Broadway Youth Center), Marissa Miller (Howard Brown Health), Mary Miller (Chicago Women’s AIDS Project) and will be moderated by Planned Parenthood of Illinois’ Director of Clinical Education and Initiatives, Brenda Wolfe.
