AIDS Free Pittsburgh Presents at Trans Pride Pittsburgh Conference

AIDS Free Pittsburgh (AFP) was invited to speak at the Pittsburgh Trans Pride virtual conference October 6 about its programming and available resources.

AFP Community Outreach and Engagement Coordinator Hazell Azzer Carpenter-Saunders presented information about its Sex Education Social Hour (S.E.S.H) and Vogue Education Workshop. Through the 6-week curriculum participants learn about community resources, HIV and STI testing, and pivotal historical moments that helped better medical care for communities affected by HIV. These programs were created to present the most up-to-date information to community members about risks, data, and resources as it relates to HIV.

Throughout the conference, topics centered around inclusion, gender affirming messaging and care, and community engagement and inclusion. AFP along with many other community organizations were able to display new initiatives, opportunities, or programs for community engagement. There were more than 240 attendees at the conference and nearly 75 presenters.
