Stand Tall Get Snapped Project Launches In November

Hi All,

The long awaited opening of the Stand Tall Get Snapped Project approaches. Please see the posters below for more details on this amazing exhibition featuring PLWHIV talking about their journey since diagnosis. It features the photographs and stories of 30 HIV positive individuals from all walks of life, ethnic origin, orientation, gender, age, UK location, and so on. 

 

30 participants were chosen to commemorate the number of years since the first official recognition of the HIV epidemic, and the death of Terrence Higgins in 1982 whose friends went on to form the Terrence Higgins Trust (THT).

The aim of the project is to demonstrate that HIV can affect anyone, and dispel the myth that it is just an issue on the whole for gay men or people of Black African origin.

This exhibition is an important step in removing the stigma that surrounds HIV and a move forwards for those who still live with the condition in silence, and, in many cases, fear.

Please do come along to find out more about this groundbreaking work, find out more about HIV and those living with the virus. By seeing the exhibition, and hearing the stories of those affected, we can together begin to eradicate the stigma that so unfairly blights the lives of those living with HIV and help educate all on the risks and how to avoid the virus.

The Crescent is proud to be participating in this very worthwhile project. We look forward to seeing you there!

Best wishes

The Crescent Team
