“Since I was a peer sex educator as a teenager, sexual health has been a passion of mine. Seeing members of our communities struggle to find basic information without shame or judgment has galvanized me to take action,” said Tobi Hill-Meyer. “With new advancements in HIV detection, prevention, and treatment, there’s no reason anyone should have to go without these life saving tools.”
Having more than fifteen years experience in the LGBTQ movement, and at national, state, and local LGBTQ organizations to Gay City, Tobi is known across the US and Canada as a trans activist, sexuality expert, and an award winning filmmaker and author.
“Tobi Hill-Meyer is a well respected leader and advocate with deep ties to the many communities affected by HIV in the state, and she brings incredible energy and insight to this work,” said Fred Swanson, Executive Director of Gay City. “Hiring her to help coordinate messaging and communications for this project marks an important expansion of the partnership between Gay City and the Washington State Department of Health on the End AIDS Washington campaign.”
This news bring an increased capacity to develop and grow the End AIDS Washington campaign, which is dedicated to reducing new HIV infections in Washington by 50% by the year 2020.
