Justin's HIV Journal: Open That Closet Door Fashion Show 2014 -- Presented by NovaSalud, Inc (VIDEO & PICTURES)

On August 16, 2014 NovaSalud Inc. put on a beautiful fashion show are the O street Mansion in NW DC.   Clothing designed by Juan Jose Saenz-Ferreyros Peruvian Fashion Designer and Owner of Ferreyros Couture Company Photography by Chris Zarconi Photography and Jose Dimas C M.  All models have been affecting in some shape of form by HIV/AIDS.  The fashion show was meant to fight against the stigma of HIV.  I participated in the fashion show and mini-doc and I really appreciate all the NovaSalud does and continues to do in the community.  Fellow HIV/AIDS activist Rod McCoy and Patrick Ingram were models as well.  I hope to work with NovaSalud again.

NovaSalud is established by and for the community, NovaSalud, Inc's mission is to improve and strengthen the health and well-being of our diverse Northern Virginia community through culturally-competent and language-appropriate HIV/AIDS services and prevention education.  NovaSalud works to effect the change necessary to instill understanding and compassion, and strives to mitigate the discrimination and stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS.
