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

I'm not positive, but I've been working on this campaign for four years. You're talking about stigma, and that's what we do. We're out, we're visible. I go to these events around the country -- conferences, AIDS Walks -- I'm going to San Francisco next week -- and I feel stigma in the community. I just feel for everyone. In my family, when I talk to my parents about what I do, it's such a disappointment that they're so uneducated. And that's so close to me. And I'm just like, "No, you're wrong. What are you talking about?"
