LOVE POSITIVE WOMEN
February 1, 2024
Join Visual AIDS for LOVE POSITIVE WOMEN, an annual project that displays and distributes hundreds of heartfelt valentines on handmade paper by artists, activists, and HIV-positive women. Established in 2013 by Visual AIDS artist member Jessica Whitbread, this international series of events uses Valentine’s Day as a backdrop to engage in public and private acts of love and care for women living with HIV. After the presentation at MoMA PS1, the valentines will be mailed around the world to HIV-positive women in time for February 14.
Visual AIDS uses art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV-positive artists, and preserving legacies during the ongoing AIDS epidemic. To date, the project has distributed over 3,500 cards to fight stigma, create community, and empower women living with HIV, who often experience isolation as they face specific challenges around relationships, motherhood, and healthcare.
Are you a woman or femme living with HIV who would like to receive a handmade valentine's card? Request a card.
