Voices from Our Allies Introduction

A Girl Like Me was created so that cis and trans women living with HIV could have a safe space to share their unique experiences. However, we know that The Well Project community extends far beyond women living with HIV, including allies, family and friends, others who are living with HIV who don’t identify as women, healthcare providers, and more. Voices from our Allies is a page created to hear from our extended community who are interested in posting their experiences as it relates to women and HIV.
