Torch Song
by John Caldera
When I was chosen to be the only openly HIV-positive person to carry the Olympic torch through the streets of San Francisco, I felt proud and honored. But it wasn’t until a protester tried to extinguish my flame that I learned my true place in Olympic history.

Service Interruption
by Bob Ickes
Jeremiah Johnson heeded his country’s call to public service by volunteering for the Peace Corps. It sent him to Ukraine to teach English and AIDS prevention. But when he himself became infected there, the Peace Corps dismissed him.

by Eliza Barclay
Those who oppose relaxed American immigration standards often claim that Latin American immigrants who leave their native countries for the U.S. do so with infections they bring into this country. But AIDS prevention experts say migrants often become infected in border towns along the way—or in America—and export HIV back to their homelands.
