Over the course of a single year, three of Phoebe's friends died of HIV-related complications. They were all trans women who had made conscious decisions not to take medication to manage their HIV. Phoebe, a trans woman who is HIV-negative, says their decisions to forgo life-enhancing medication were largely due to stigma. They wanted to avoid the judgment of medical professionals, peers and a society that see both HIV-positive status and transness as worthy of shame, ridicule and — sometimes — violence. "With them, they let [the stigma] control their life, period," she says. "Snuffed them out."
