Broward Ryan White Quarterly Journal ""Positively Speaking""

Broward County, FL
Program Year: 2020

The first issue of the Broward Ryan White Part A Quarterly Journal “Positively Speaking” was launched in September 2018, as a vehicle for HIV advocacy, enlightenment and expression. True to its tagline, “News & views across the HIV community,” the journal, disseminated in both print and digital formats, has blossomed into a spirited platform for HIV advocates and allies, both local and national. In transforming our newsletter into a broader publication with expanded outreach, “Positively Speaking” has become a voice echoing its uplifting name, with content providing affirmation and inspiration for Broward residents living with HIV and the Broward community as a whole. Fostering this inclusive readership sets a precedent in our county communications in addressing HIV stigma by expanding the HIV conversation. And producing a publication that puts an approachable and relevant face on our agency helps to augment our presence and our credibility, fostering greater accessibility for those in need of county HIV services.
