Since the 1990′ s, a group of Charity Queens deep in the heart of Texas has been reuniting individuals affected by AIDS with their families for what is often their last trip. This community has sent individuals as far as Kenya, brought family to Texas if an individual is too ill to travel, and still thrives as the nation’s only travel and funerary assistance resource for individuals living with and dying from AIDS and their families. These stories create ONE WAY HOME, a transmedia storytelling project.

 

ONE WAY HOME is designed to facilitate intergenerational storytelling around HIV and AIDS, and cultivates a revitalized understanding of what HIV/AIDS is, how one community has nurtured awareness through support and the ways in which this disease affects us all.

 

This project is intended to bridge the generational gap that exists between the original generation affected by HIV + AIDS, and a younger generation who is highest at risk.
