What is the POZitively Resilient Fellowship?
The POZitively Resilient Fellowship is a new Leadership Development opportunity at The Audre Lorde Project (ALP). The Fellowship will focus on uplifting leadership in Trans & Gender Non-Conforming People of Color (TGNC POC) communities impacted by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). In the past, POZitively Resilient has been an event which includes cultural work and performance to educate our community on facts about HIV. At this event, folks will explore tools for safer sex; gain resources and information from our community partners; and will learn the importance of collective strategies in order to center the voices of persons living with HIV.
Why does ALP need a POZitively Resilient Fellowship?
This will help build out leadership within the Trans Gender Non-Conforming People of Color (TGNC POC) community living with HIV.
This will allow POZitively Resilient to be led by those most impacted in the community by HIV.
This will direct the culture at ALP to make sure there is a focus & dialogue on how HIV impacts the TGNC POC Community.
