TellYaSisters

New Aboriginal Women's Resource

"Tell ya sisters HIV is not a thing of the past" - this is the message of our new Aboriginal women's HIV awareness postcard. The artwork on the card was created by Karla Dickens and shown in an exhition of Aboriginal lesbians' work at Boomalli Aboriginal Artists' Cooperative for the 2007 Mardi Gras season. Curator, Bonny Briggs named the show '3 in 10' to highlight the fact that 3 out of every 10 people in the Indigenous community newly diagnosed with HIV are women, compared to 1 in 10 in the non - Indigenoous community.
