Empowered: Trans Women & HIV
July 22, 2016
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that more than one in four trans women – including more than half of Black trans women – are living with HIV. Globally, trans women are nearly
50 times more likely to have HIV as compared to other populations.
In response to these overwhelming statistics and the vulnerability of trans women, Greater Than AIDS is launching, Empowered: Trans Women & HIV, a new video series about love, life, and HIV among #TransEmpowered women.
JoAnne Keatley, Director of UCSF’s Center of Excellence for Transgender Health, is featured in one vignette.
