Acceptance Journeys is a social marketing program in Wisconsin that pairs photos and stories of heterosexual people telling about their love and acceptance of the LGBT people in their lives. It includes a Web site, story cards, outdoor advertising, and social media. The campaign features messages such as "Whose life could you change with love?" It was developed in response to a CDC study which found a large increase in HIV infection in young African American gay and bisexual men in Milwaukee. Anti-gay discrimination was identified as a significant factor in the transmission of HIV in the gay community, especially among gay and bisexual men of color.
