In the ongoing battle against stigma, the importance of visibility cannot be overstated.
In essence, visibility is the driving force behind the transformation of societal attitudes and behaviors. It is the first step toward a more inclusive and compassionate world, where stigma no longer holds sway, and every individual is embraced for their unique qualities and experiences. As we continue our efforts to fight stigma, let us remember that visibility is not just crucial; it is the cornerstone upon which lasting change is built.
