A Growing Response to a Growing Need

Growing New Partnerships

HIV does not exist in a vacuum. It exists at the intersection of many social justice issues. To end the epidemic, we work in coalition with social movements.

Growing New FUNDS

We do our part to provide much-needed financial resources specifically for the U.S. South from our fund of 2.5 million private dollars.

Growing Leadership

We train and develop leaders who represent the HIV epidemic in the U.S. South, particularly those who are members of Black, Latinx, queer, and transgender communities.

The South: A Proud Legacy of Social Justice Activism

The Deep South – with a strong legacy of social justice work focused on racial and gender equality – is well-positioned to address the intersecting barriers that fuel the South’s HIV epidemic, including poverty, inadequate education, persistent HIV stigma, racism, homophobia, and transphobia.

From a grant provided by the Southern HIV Impact Fund, Game Changing Men spent the last year collecting data from more than 1,200 people who identify as transmasculine.
