What is Mozaic?
Mozaic is a wellness program and community space for transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary people of color ages 13-29.
We are a CDC funded HIV prevention program, and we know that reducing new HIV infections involves more than providing free condoms and testing (though we do provide both). That’s why we’re creating an all-genders-welcome community of support for youth and young adults of color. Because only when we have the freedom to be ourselves, can we begin to take care of ourselves.
Mozaic is a project of Equitas Health. We partner with the Nationwide Children’s Hospital THRIVE Program, community organizations, and local activists to reduce the disproportionately high rates of HIV among transgender and gender non-conforming young people of color.
Our mission is to have no new diagnoses of HIV among transgender and gender non-conforming youth and young adults of color in our community.
Why are we concerned about HIV infections among young transgender and gender non-conforming people of color? Learn more.
Since the Fall of 2017, we have been creating safer spaces for transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary youth and young adults of color throughout Columbus.
