Margot's Story

Margot Kirkland
HIV Advocate
Washington, DC

Margot Kirkland was pregnant when she tested positive for HIV, and her young daughter was only 26 months old when she passed away. She was still grieving and trying to deal emotionally and physically with her diagnosis when her life changed dramatically, and she “found her voice” as an HIV prevention advocate and peer counselor for women living with the disease.
