New York is home to a new edgy, political art group. According to their members, "GrenAIDS is an artist/activist collective whose efforts are to put an end to the stigmatization of persons living with HIV/AIDS by producing aggressive work that awakens people to the reality that the AIDS crisis is not over."

The images above are their first public works, which debuted at Life Chances: HIV Criminalization and Trans Politics event on April 24th at Leslie Lohman Art Museum. With text that reads, " HIV is not a crime" the images are aimed at getting people to start talking about HIV Criminalization and how that related to already marginalized bodies. Stigma resulting from criminalization only fuels the epidemic.

Working in collaboration with QUEEROCRACY, GrenAIDS will be releasing new work this summer.
