Academy Award winner and legendary comedian Mo’Nique opens up about dealing with stigma, what it takes to change, and appreciating today. Best known for her numerous acting roles on TV and movie screens, Mo’Nique first gained fame as a member of the Queens of Comedy, as well as for her roles in the 1990s-2000s TV series Moesha and her spin-off series the Parkers. For her role in the film Precious, in 2009, she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. In 2015, she received rave reviews for her performance as Ma Rainey in the HBO biopic Bessie, for which she also earned a Primetime Emmy Award nomination and many more acclaimed roles.
This issue is dedicated to World AIDS Day, which will mark its 30th anniversary on December 01, 2018, will be “Know Your Status.”
Significant progress has been made in the AIDS response since 1988, and today three in four people living with HIV know their status. But we still have miles to go, as the latest UNAIDS report shows, and that includes reaching people living with HIV who do not know their status and ensuring that they are linked to quality care and prevention services.
This issue intentionally provided space to center attention for TransAwareness Week beginning November 14-20, 2018. The flyer below details the week long events and activities that OutMemphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center will host. For more information please contact Kayla Gore at Kgore@outmemphis.org

Unfortunately, many barriers to HIV testing remain. Stigma and discrimination still deters people from taking an HIV test. Access to confidential HIV testing is still an issue of concern. Many people still only get tested after becoming ill and symptomatic. MSM Correspondent Eddie Wiley writes a compelling piece about the effects of “Stigma” and what we Eddie can do to help end it.
