Working title: Dominating the discrimination & Negative Connotations of AIDS in Kenya
Thesis statement: Kenya, is a country within the African continent where people,and the government,are relatively conservative with their beliefs and religion which creates a prominent view of different individuals. A large demographic of Kenya is known to blame women, and those affiliated within the LGBTQ for the spread of HIV. From moral standards and conservative like views, these assumptions of who to blame are asserted into the Kenyan society. We can’t be blinded by the implemented values that clutch onto the society of Kenya, It is the people’s job to be well aware of how aids is contracted, and the treatment of those who fight this infamous disease.
Analysis Idea: How to fight discrimination among AIDS,How religious views beliefs in Kenya effect women and the LGBTQ in Kenya , Why do they draw a sort of correlation between women and the LGBTQ to AIDS. How is discrimination shown through Kenya whether it is government implemented, community oriented, or maybe through institutional ways.
- (I will talk about the back ground of AIDS leading to the aids crisis)
2. Programs such as the NAMES project is a viable source to the solution of stereotypes that weigh the victims of Aids down. When learning about Anthony Felix and Williams you start to think that anyone can be suffering from Aids, all walks of people from around the world can get it so I ask why does society uphold negative connotations in the past and present? I presume for me to be able to uncover the answer to this question I must dig into what created these stereotypes which had often lead to the discrimination of others. The NAMES project sheds some light on the topic of AIDS and we’re able to learn more of the regular everyday people who had fought through it, I think of the NAMES project as an ice breaker, still there are other ways we can put an end to this issue.
Both Individuals from my Panels didn’t provide much of what they were like before leaving the world, They did however have a love for art i can assume from the musical notes spread across both panels. I decided to just look further in ways discrimination is practiced to these victims and how the media may create a negative image that isn’t present in these victims.
Section 1: Anthony Felix/Billy Ryan Williams
a.( I will talk about as much as I know about Anthony Felix and Billy Ryan Williams)
b. ( the Purpose of this section is to break the stereotype that antagonizes people with aids in the past and present, I want to show that they’re everyday people capable of facing a disease like Aids.)
a.( I want to talk more of the purpose of the Names project and how it brings the people who battled AIDS to light.)
Conclusion Still In thought
I want the conclusion to lead to a possibility of more ideas on how discrimination can effect the victims socially,mentally, and or physically.
