the percentage of transgender people who received a new HIV diagnosis was more than 3 times the national average.
From 2009 to 2014, more than 80% of the new HIV diagnoses among transgender people in the United States were among people of color.
Multiple barriers account for this disparity, including a lack of cultural humility in healthcare providers and a lack of access to housing, food, transportation, and job opportunities. We seek to remedy this by creating a safer community space and resource center with peer mentoring, peer storytelling, rapid HIV testing, STI screening, PrEP referrals, and linkage to medical care.
