Positive Lives is a unique global photography project that supports those living with HIV/AIDS and challenges the stigma and prejudices they face.
The project is one of the world's most acclaimed HIV/AIDS photography projects. Established in 1993, by a group of activists who believed that properly portrayed, the 'human story' behind HIV and AIDS could challenge the sources of ignorance and prejudice faced by those living with the disease.
For fifteen years, the project toured globally as part of major exhibitions and longer-term community programmes; it has been seen by over 2 million people world-wide and has received critical and public acclaim.
In 2009, the project transferred to the Alliance.
