#8. She changed the world
In the earliest days of HIV/AIDS, there was a lot of negative stigma that surrounded people who had the disease. It was not uncommon for people who had AIDS to be discriminated against under the justification of not wanting to become ill. Diana showed that not only did people with this disease deserve compassion, but that those who were afflicted weren’t necessarily dangerous to the general public. Her strive and desire to pursue equality for those affected by this changed the world’s perception about who a person with AIDS really happened to be.
