Step into our world: visit our key population photo exhibition

As a child I prayed to God to make me like all the other boys. I wanted to be ‘normal’. I would sit in church and pray and make ‘bargains’ with God, that if he made me straight I would be a good boy and serve Him for the rest of my life. I hated myself and thought it was a punishment.

Bradley, Botswana

Bradley took photos to document the struggles he meets in his everyday life as a young MSM in Botswana. Rajesh did the same in Nepal, where people living with HIV face even bigger stigma than people who use drugs. Together with four other community photographers Bradley and Rajesh want to create visibility about the challenges that LGBT, sex workers and people who use drugs encounter and the HIV risks they face. Their work was supported by award winning photographer Chris de Bode. Meet Bradley & Rajesh in person, and talk about their photo stories at the Bridging the Gaps photo exhibition which will be displayed at AIDS2016.
