POZ Founder Appointed to Head Cable Positive
Sean Strub, founder of POZ magazine and renowned activist, writer and entrepreneur, has been named president and CEO of Cable Positive, the cable and telecommunications industry’s AIDS action organization that promotes awareness and education through the media.
Strub’s AIDS activism began in 1981 when he started collecting information on the emerging epidemic and distributing it to his friends. In the late 1980s, he launched a treatment newsletter, and in 1994, he founded POZ, an award-winning resource for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
“As an activist and media entrepreneur, I have admired Cable Positive’s ability to effectively leverage a relatively small budget into an enormous impact. As a person with HIV, I have appreciated the role Cable Positive has played in raising awareness, educating the community and encouraging quality HIV-related programming through their POP Awards.”
