Poem ‘Wildflowers’ (edited version) depicts lived experiences of women living with HIV
“We have blossomed in the harshest of terrain. Warded off plague and blame, and found a place to place our roots. We are fragrant, vibrant, and brimming with life.”
The ViiV Healthcare team is proud to have supported Positive Women Victoria in developing Wildflowers – a powerful poem that depicts the lived experiences of women living with HIV.
The project saw Positive Women Victoria partner with Melbourne-based poet, Fleassy Malay, to develop the piece following a series of workshops where women living with HIV reflected on their experiences.
This edited video has been shared to raise awareness across social media for International Women’s Day on 8 March and for the National Day of Women Living With HIV on 9 March. Positive Women Victoria may provide the original unedited video upon request for educational purposes.
