Street Works ‘Tea, Transformation and Talk’

By: Emma Vondra

April 18 is a date that Street Works in Nashville knew that they needed to stand up and speak out about. This date is National Transgender HIV Testing Day (NTHTD), an annual event designed to recognize the importance of routine HIV testing and status awareness, as well promote HIV prevention and patient-centered care for transgender and gender non-binary people. Transgender women are disproportionately affected by HIV.

duGard Communications had a vital hand in planning and promoting Street Works’ event centered around this topic on April 16 titled ‘Tea, Transformation and Talk: National Transgender HIV Testing Day.’ This free event was aimed at sparking an in-depth conversation with community leaders Camille Lewis, Valerie Spencer and Carmarion D. Anderson-Harvey and included time for questions from the virtual audience. 

Creating an inclusive and educational space for community members to have a conversation was something that Street Works was able to successfully captivate.
