Kathleen Gerus-Darbison: Stitches Doll Project
By Robert Breining
November 16, 2012
Last week, Kathleen Gerus-Darbison shared her story and all about the Stitches Doll Project on the POZ I AM Radio show.
Kathleen is currently an adjunct professor in sociology at Oakland Community College in Auburn Hills, Michigan and Macomb Community College in Clinton Township, Michigan. She teaches intro classes as well in the sociology of sex roles, modern social problems, race and ethnicity and marriage and family.
Kathleen is probably best known as the founder and director of Stitches Women's Initiatives, an organization that offers doll-making workshops for women living with HIV infection and other health/life challenges. Stitches also provides a traveling exhibit of completed dolls to educate the larger community around issues of risk, stigma, and discrimination. For more info visit: www.stitchesdollproject.org.

The Positive Pitch
I describe myself as a "positive person with purpose." My goal is to help people living with HIV/AIDS discover similarities in each other ... and form friendships. I want to ease the shock of a diagnosis and remind people that our dreams are not infected. I am also an HIV/AIDS cyber-activist, radio show host, blogger and social network guru.
