“Life” in “Numbers” by C.C.

About This Video

C.C. is a Chinese American transgender woman living with HIV whose story touches on her transition from community member to advocate, and what it’s like to “become one of the statistics” overnight.

What does this video tell us about stigma?
How is family support important to people living with HIV? C.C.’s mother found a way to overcome her fears around her daughter’s transition to support C.C. in her recovery. This helped C.C. become an advocate for the community. We can all learn from C.C.’s mother about how to be supportive of those around us in order to help them in their treatment and life’s work.
