Within our Undetectables framework, we believe that the language we use is paramount to the ways in which HIV- related stigma is perpetuated but more importantly in the way that it is reduced. Therefore, instead of the term “anti-stigma”, which reinforces the ideologies we wish to dismantle, we use the term “Self-Love and Acceptance”. Self-Love and acceptance are the cornerstones of all our work because we refuse to accept the notion that we are, as people living with HIV are anything short of beautiful, valued, and important beings. This campaign liberates participants from internalized stigma while flipping the narrative that a positive status is something to hide under a blanket of shame.
