From day one I have been ok with having HIV and accepted the meds to be my lifeline. The internet was very black and white and I didn’t feel any different. I was diagnosed in October 2016. I struggle with how others feel and how they are uncomfortable and have misinterpretations. I share the birthday of World AIDS Day, December 1st! I also want to put myself in the public eye and have a voice. I want to help others and those who are uncomfortable with us!

hi I am a gay male 38 years old. I found out that I had HIV 5 months ago. went to the doctors and they told me that my HIV levels was almost undetectable. I was told I got it 6 1/2 years ago. I was living out in IN at the time I had a one night meet up. I am so great full that I have a supporting family and friends because when I found out so did they. I don't know where I would be at with out them. it has been a fight with this but not easy at all. but I am a strong person and I will make it.

What about "The Digital Living Quilt" by ZeeStrong / @ZeeZalnasky ? It has over 100,000 images & graphics about ending HIV Stigma & promoting self-acceptance. I've never heard of Francesco Di Benedetto. How's he connected to POZ magazine?
