POSITIVE VOICE Providing HIV Education since 1991
POSITIVE VOICEProviding HIV Educationsince 1991 


Since I came out publicly as an HIV positive woman in 1991 I have taken many opportunities to be visible and share my story (see below).


Of course, in 1991 the internet didn't exist so there was no You Tube / Google / Twitter to announce myself but I did radio/newspaper/TV interviews as well as training courses to raise awareness and allow people to see me as a woman living with HIV.


Today the landscape is very different and I was delighted to make my first ever TEDX talk in May 2018.
