Synopsis: HIV doesn’t define me. There are a lot of myths and misconceptions out there about HIV. Nine Circles’ Lived Experience Advisory, a group of folks living with HIV who consult on Nine Circles’ communications activities, have experienced a lot of stigma in their own lives. With the support of Nine Circles’ Community Engagement Coordinator, the group came up with a list of 10 things they want people to know about HIV, in their own words. The list has been turned into postcards and posters, translated into French, been disseminated at the Red Ribbon Walk & Run fundraiser and was the basis for a World AIDS Day campaign that was distributed through Winnipeg Public Libraries, Winnipeg MAC Cosmetics locations and on social media. Words: Nine Circles’ Lived Experience Advisory Editing/Project Coordination: Teri Stevens Design: Jess Koroscil/Housefires Design & Illustration Funding: Public Health Agency of Canada, the Snowy Owl Monarchist Society.
