The Magdala Project
(This intervention is pending funding.)
The Magdala Project is a multi-session group level HIV/STD risk reduction program designed to reduce HIV/STD sexually high-risk behavior among transgender people ages 18-50. In these workshops we will discuss various social, economic, cultural oppressive factors that lead to social isolation and low self-esteem. With a focus on community-building, gender expression acceptance and pride, and teaching self-care, self-esteem, and self-love. Participants will receive free HIV/STD/Hep C testing and screenings, in addition to harm-reduction materials, latex or polyurethane condoms, lubes and other completion incentives.
