Cecilia's Story: Transgender, Chinese Emigre Talks About HIV Stigma and Survival (Video)

September 28, 2012

Cecilia is a transgender woman, originally from China, who has been living with HIV for 18 years. A former substance abuser and survivor of assault, she shares the story of how stigma drove her away from her family -- and why reconciling with her mother is the reason she started HIV treatment.

Cecilia was also recently featured in a Poz magazine piece on women, trauma and HIV.
