"I am not a disease, I am simply Yonce from the Bronx. The formula works it will work if you work it."

Yonce Jones proud woman of trans experience who started working in the prevention field at the age of 15. Yonce’s advocacy began as just a summer job in the basement of a community center, where she, along with a few friends, would wake up early the whole summer to go learn about the prevention of HIV. She was proud to receive her first Prevention Certificate of Completion and continues her HIV advocacy today. Yonce has been advocating and speaking on trans issues and rights for about close to 15 years.

Yonce is a part of Harlem United and AIDS United, and she believes in U=U because it has changed her life by ending the stigma related to HIV care. She says, “I am not a disease, I am simply Yonce from the Bronx. The formula works it will work if you work it.”
