Positive and Proud
To commemorate World AIDS Day 2018, QueerTT.com in collaboration with the TT Pride Arts Festival, launches ‘Positive & Proud’ – in tribute to Denis (Deni) James and countless other members of the LGBTQIA family who were lost to us because of, or live with HIV/AIDS.
Deni was the Founder and Editor of the MSM publication – FreeForum: No Political Agenda, which was funded in part by UNAIDS and other international bodies. For many years, Deni shone a spotlight on the nuances of the issues faced by LGBTQIA persons in relation to HIV/AIDS and helped them to move past being another ‘positive’ statistic, to being ‘Proud & Positive’ about their lives.
QueerTT,com is ‘Proud & Positive’ about this new resource which will make information and education about HIV/AIDS more accessible to the LGBTQIA community. As we build, partnerships with related CBO’s, NGO’s and other stakeholders will result in tailored and consistent content.
Followers and visitors are encouraged to submit content for publication by writing to QueerTT.email@example.com
