Honoring Long Term Survivors on the 40th Anniversary of HIV/AIDS: A Girl Like Me LIVE

Submitted on Jun 2, 2021


The first episode of A Girl Like Me LIVE both commemorated the 40th anniversary of the first reports of what would come to be known as HIV; and honored HIV Long-Term Survivors' Day (they share the date of June 5).

In our premiere episode, series creator and host Ciarra "Ci Ci" Covin moderated an important conversation among four long-term survivors from our community advisory board (current and emerita members): Porchia Dees, Vickie Lynn, Maria Mejia, and Ieshia Scott.
