Others Short Film – Stigma has many faces.

Stigma has many faces.

The real horror is stigma

Fear fuels HIV stigma. We created this short film so audiences would get a feeling for the impacts of stigma that people living with HIV face every day.

Real stories of stigma

While this film is a work of fiction, for people living with HIV, stigma is a series of terrible experiences that impact health and well-being. And it happens every day. See how six people faced HIV stigma in their own lives and overcame it.
