Sin Vergüenza: A Bilingual HIV Prevention Themed Telenovela Webseries

The classic, persistent themes of Spanish-language soap operas, also known as telenovelas, get a refreshing, enthralling update in Sin Vergüenza (Without Shame). Presented in English as well as Spanish, and imagined and realized by California’s vast AltaMed health care network, the aim of the show is to “educate without being educational.” The project is a unique endeavor — it combines a fresh narrative format with the ability to tackle real-world issues such as HIV, stigma, lesbian/ gay/ bisexual/ transgender (LGBT) issues, family issues, infidelity, shame, aging, dating and more.
