  Mary Fisher Profile

MARY FISHER is an artist, author, and speaker who travels the world advocating for those who share her HIV-positive status. She has served as an ambassador for the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), and on the Leadership Council of the Global Coalition on Women and AIDS. Her art work has been featured in one-woman and group shows and is found in distinguished private and public collections. Her words, photographs and art have filled six books.

Ms. Fisher was a mother of two young sons when she was diagnosed HIV-positive in the summer of 1991. Within months, she went public with her status and founded the Family AIDS Network, a national advocacy organization. In August 1992, her speech at the Republican National Convention brought the convention floor to silence and tears, moved millions around the world, and gave her a new role: ambassador of compassion in the fight against AIDS.
