'Faces of HIV'

Body Positive Dorset

We are very excited to announce 'Faces of HIV' ...our collaboration with local photographer Will Corder.

This mission is to produce a portfolio of photographic portraits showing local HIV positive people and will culminate in various exhibitions in the community. The aim of the project is to reduce stigma and raise awareness by 'giving a face to HIV.'

Models of all backgrounds, shapes and sizes are wanted to show the diversity among the local HIV positive population.

Want to reduce stigma?
Want to raise awareness?
