(Nicosia, 27.07.2021) The LGBTI+ in Freedom from Exploitation (LIFE) project, funded by the European Union under the “Together Against Trafficking in Human Beings” grant scheme and implemented by the Queer Cyprus Association in cooperation with KAOS-GL, is making its informative leaflet on “ HIV-AIDS” more accessible by publishing it online on the association’s website.

The Life Project, whose slogan is “for Cyprus where Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and beyond (LGBTI+) will be free from exploitation”, aims to contribute to the struggle of LGBTI+s who are trafficked in the northern part of Cyprus. As part of the project, 3 different informative leaflets on “Sexually Transmitted Infections”, “Solidarity Line” and “HIV & AIDS” and a handbook on “Sex Work” have been published. In the wake of Covid-19, the Queer Cyprus association is now making these publications available `online` on our website. After we presented the “Solidarity Line” and “Sexually Transmitted Infections” booklet at the beginning of 2021, we are pleased to present today our informative leaflet on “HIV-AIDS”.

For many years in the northern part of Cyprus, the Queer Cyprus Association, has been combating, for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and beyond (LGBTI+) of all sexual orientation and gender identity diversity, not to be discriminated against and to have equal access to human rights. Along with our rights-based struggle, we have also carried out studies in the field of health. To break prejudices and raise awareness on the issue, the HIV-AIDS leaflet has been prepared in cooperation with the ‘Think Positive Initiative’, which is working on HIV-AIDS in the northern part of Cyprus. This leaflet provides information on general information on HIV-AIDS, detailed information about living with HIV, such as treatment, stigma, discrimination, mental health, and “Undetected = Uncontaminated”, are included.
