HIV is still highly stigmatised in our society, due to ignorance and miscommunication.
Abigail Gorman attended a workshop on HIV and PrEP and is here to tell you more about this. The workshop was arranged by Deaf LGBTIQA UK, whose website is an excellent resource for information and guidance for deaf people in the LGBTIQA+ community. You can find them here deaflgbtiqa.org.uk
You can read more about HIV and AIDS on the NHS website at www.nhs.uk/conditions/hiv-and-aids/
If you're worried about HIV and would like to test yourself at home, you can order a home testing kit by visiting the following website: www.test.hiv
For further information about HIV, you can watch an excellent short film called ‘A Life Beyond’ (subtitled) about six inspiring people who won’t be defined by their HIV. Watch it here bloomsburynetwork.co.uk
