What Does HIV/AIDS Stigma Look Like in Your Life?

Well, a lot of the work that I've done on HIV has been global. And so when I come back and talk to people about that work, there's a lot of conceptions about AIDS being out there, and somewhere else; and that you can go visit a place, but you can come home, and that those are separate worlds. So I think a lot of the stigma that I've witnessed has been sort of this imaginary concept that AIDS only affects people out there, and it's not within our own communities.
