“Take My Hand” is the short story of two friends, Jade and Tanisha, who share what it was like to learn they were HIV-positive and how they dealt with shame, self-blame and isolation before finally finding the support they needed. The performance is based on the lives and stories of Black women in New Orleans living with and affected by HIV, and was inspired by research conducted by ViiV Healthcare, the only company solely focused on HIV. This research also serves as the foundation for ViiV’s Positive Action for Women initiative.
