HIV Equal is a national multimedia campaign that aims to end HIV stigma and promote HIV testing by creating a social art movement. The concept of the project was created by Jack Mackenroth, who you will know from previous chats on my blog is a long time HIV activist. The campaign photos for HIV Equal which were shot by another wasp fave, celebrity photographer Thomas Evans, show artists from all walks of life who support the concept that regardless of one's HIV status, we are all equally valuable.
To help promote HIV testing, every person who takes part in the campaign will also be tested for HIV with the hope that as the campaign grows, this will help take the fear out of HIV testing. Which is really quite a great idea as it is something all of us should be doing anyways.
If you would like to get involved with the project, visit HIV Equal's facebook page for more information and future campaign updates. Obviously, I could only bring myself to posting my waspin boys, Jack, Thomas, and Nick Adams, but you can view all the photos shot for the campaign so far here.
