She was “Anonymous” for four years...
Now she’s editor in chief of POZ

After revealing the intimate details of her life in the pages of POZ as “Anonymous,” Regan Hofmann disclosed her status in the April 2006 issue of the magazine and became editor in chief.

Here, Regan tells the story herself—in her first editor’s letter, in a conversation with POZ founder Sean Strub and in the blaze of media coverage that followed.

Just click on the links at your right.

“Why now? Because there’s a real need for positive people to be visible—AIDS needs to be in the spotlight again.... Awareness and prevention efforts in this country are not where they should be.... Not to mention that the stigma surrounding the disease, even after a quarter-century of education efforts, is still so severe that many with HIV feel they have to live in shame and secrecy.”
—from “Truth be Told,” POZ April 2006 editor’s letter
