Kampala, Uganda

The sixteen candidates competing in the Y+ Beauty Contest load their outfits into a mini van designed for fourteen people to transport them to the Sheraton Hotel where the competition is organised. Dresses, tuxedos and shoes will be stuffed in the back of the vehicle or kept on their knees. The Y+ beauty contest is national competition with the message that people with HIV can also be beautiful, externally and internally. Participants compete for the titles of 'Miss' and 'Mister Y+'. The 'Y' stands for youth and + for HIV positive.
