PHOTOS: The Stigma Project Launch Party


The Stigma Project, an organization that works to reduce the stigma surrounding HIV and AIDS, marked its official launch last weekend in Los Angeles.

Supporteres of The Stigma Project gathered Sunday to mark the launch of the nonprofit organization, which works to reduce the rate of HIV-infection as well as stigma toward the positive community. The group's work includes harnessing the power of social media to create graphics, recently profiled on HIV Plus, that illustrate facts and statistics related to HIV and AIDS, and are designed to be shared through platforms like Twitter and Facebook. They are also one of HIV Plus's partner organizations.

Co-founded by Scott McPherson and Chris Richie, The Stigma Project drew a well-heeled crowd to the private residence of Dean Hansell in Hancock Park, Calif., where some notable supporters included Ryan Alvarez, Reid Lee, Megan Littlefield, Damon Jacobs, Stephen Macias, Andreas Meyer, Julie McPherson, Jesse Finley Reed, Dave Reynolds, Mat Herman, Fabian Taghdiri, West Hollywood councilmember John Duran, Here Media CEO Paul Colichman, and David Millbern, the creator of Here TV's first orginial comedy, From Here On Out.
