    This Is A Film I Want To See. Because Stigmas Are Deadly And Stories Need to Be Told.

    Almost 30 years ago, a group of people began working on the project that turned into the AIDS Memorial Quilt to bring light to a stigmatized illness that was claiming tens of thousands of lives.

    So much progress has been made with HIV and AIDS treatment, but before we get too comfortable, let’s remember this: over 30 million people are infected worldwide and over 50,000 are diagnosed in the United States every single year.

    In the filmmaker’s own words, this is “a story of resilience, love, activism, and hope.” I’d love to see this film that tells the story of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, along with the stories of many who live with HIV and AIDS, but they need our help to make it happen.
