"A Day with HIV in America"
Photo Project Focuses
On De-stigmatizing HIV
And Tearing Down Boundaries

A DAY WITH HIV IN AMERICA SEPT 21, 2011 - www.adaywithhivinamerica.com

Positive or negative, we are all affected by HIV



CHICAGO, Ill. (September 10, 2011) - The second annual A Day with HIV in America is asking people to share their stories through the lens of a camera on one, single day, September 21. The second annual A Day with HIV in America will capture the collective portrait of those living with HIV to help remove the stigma of HIV and to advance a community of care and support.

A DAY WITH HIV IN AMERICA SEPT. 21 - GET IN THE PICTURE - www.adaywithhivinamerica.com/

Presented by Positively Aware, a leading HIV treatment magazine produced in the U.S. by an AIDS non-profit, A Day with HIV in America is inviting people-positive and negative alike-to snap a digital photograph at any time over the course of Wednesday, September 21.
Participants can record a portrait, time with friends and family at work or play, or any moment in the day that helps the world better understand how HIV affects their lives. Photos are to be submitted by September 26 on the A Day with HIV in America web site. Follow A Day with HIV in America's Facebook page or on Twitter @A_Day_With_HIV to see updates and selected photographs, and to share the site and its vision with friends to help spread the word.

"We're asking all Americans affected by HIV to share with all of us an image of their life living with HIV," said Jeff Berry, editor of Positively Aware. "Their vantage points captured over a single day will create a rich photographic tapestry of hope, strength and support that will help tear away the stigma of living with HIV in America today."

Participants from outside of the U.S. are encouraged to participate in taking pictures on Sept. 21. One of the objectives of this project is to tear down barriers-and show how we are all affected by HIV.

The final photos selected for the photo essay of A Day with HIV in America will be announced in October 2011 and will be published in the November/December issue of Positively Aware magazine. Positively Aware will also premiere the photos at the U.S. Conference on AIDS, November 10-13 in Chicago, Ill.
