I’m excited to share the first episode of Tested, a comic I’ve been working on in collaboration with the New York State Department of Health, AIDS Institute and writer Josh Billig. The comic is being made as part of the AIDS Institute’s app called @ygetit, which is designed primarily for young people living with HIV and helping them live healthier lives.

Reminder: Today is National Transgender HIV Testing Day 2017

Did you know?

  • Globally, transgender women are nearly 50 percent more likely to be living with HIV than the general population.
  • HIV prevalence among African-American transgender women is estimated to be 56 percent compared with a prevalence among white trans women of 17 percent.
  • In the United States, it is estimated that about 1.4 million adults currently identify as transgender.

Routine HIV testing and awareness are integral to the health of transgender people. Are you #DoingIt?
