12/8 The One Distinction Project - Eliminating Self-Stigma
      12/03/13 01:57 PM

I have created a website geared towards eliminating HIV related self-stigma. It will be launched in NYC on 12/8 and the following are the details:
The One Distinction Project
Vision: Eliminate the self-stigma associated with a diagnosis of HIV.
The plan is to initiate this by an event, a special evening, to be held in New York City to introduce the community (HIV infected and their friends and families) affected with HIV an online forum geared towards eliminating the self-stigma associated with being diagnosed with HIV. It is a community by people, for people, sharing their distinction of how they overcame self-stigma.
This special evening with entail the following:
1. Individual presentations given by the team who have been impacted by an HIV diagnosis – presenting one distinction that had us overcome the self-stigma of HIV. Panelist will include a medical professional, a mental health professional, a metaphysical leader, and individuals impacted by an HIV diagnosis. (This will be documented and included on the online forum – intention: leave everyone touched, moved and inspired)
2. Presenting the online forum and how this will be used to spread the message of living powerfully beyond being diagnosed whether personally or vicariously.

The location is at Unity Space in the Herald Square area (70 West 36 Street; Suite 4A, New York City, NY) on Sunday 12/8/13 from 5PM-7PM. In addition to the panel of experts, the event will have live entertainment as well as food and drinks.
Space is limited so please RSVP at
