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.
