At the time, this simple gesture helped tackle some of the stigma faced by those living with HIV.“I could never fill her shoes, especially in this particular space,” Harry said, “but because of what she did and what she stood for and how vocal she was about this issue… it’s a converging of all these different pieces.”“There’s a way out of it, and if there’s a way out of it and we know there’s a solution, I’m like a typical guy.
