The AIDS Memorial

An AIDS quilt for the digital age, The AIDS Memorial Instagram page remembers the people lost to AIDS using photos and captions submitted by those who knew and loved them. Each individual's story of joy, love, loss, or heartbreak gives insight into the emotional impact of the epidemic. Created in April 2017 and driven by personal submissions from around the world, the account serves as a globally accessible memorial and reminder of a crisis that still reverberates today, as reflected by the hashtag #WhatIsRememberedLives. On the Instagram account page, viewers can explore nearly 9,000 posts or submit their own stories and photos with the email address provided. The project seeks to preserve history and reach new generations of viewers on social media. The memorial is also on Facebook and Twitter (@theaidsmemorial on both services). Users will need an Instagram account to view The AIDS Memorial on that service.
