This week the TruthAIDS organization announces girl Child (The Transition - In Poetic Form) by author/poet lily as the official tool for use in its enlightening TruthCircles.. "It is astounding the number of women, myself included, who are not confident or empowered or aware enough to in that critical moment simply say 'Unless we use a condom, we are not having sex' or even ask 'What's your status?'" says the author. Coined as "Self-Help Poetry with an Urban Twist" girl Child covers a range of common emotions and issues - from overcoming negative self-images and heartache, to going above and beyond the limitations that society places upon us. girl Child is truly about traveling through life's peaks and valleys, making it through to the other side, and liking who you are when you get there. This candid and valid poetry collection is a must have for poetry enthusiasts, parents, teachers, counselors and anyone going through the growing pains of life.
TruthAIDS is an international physician-inspired organization that is forming a network of cross-sector partnerships with scholars from all disciplines, professionals, community-based groups, schools, theater groups and media companies to create a new community of stakeholders committed to stopping HIV and advancing preventative health.
The TruthCircle is a concept initiated by the TruthAIDS organization to openly address HIV/AIDS, sexuality and a woman's right to have her voice be heard. Simply put, a TruthCircle is an opportunity for women to openly discuss their stories, issues and feelings surrounding their sexuality. The goal is to encourage women to make better choices when it comes to sexual behavior and ultimately reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS.
