Stitches: A Doll Project

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:
