I thankful for these young people who have great courage. I too am HIV+ and I love life. The infection has become a blessing to me to foster love of self since I had so much self-hatred. My path is not for most but is was for me. Thank you for sharing.

I'm sorry, I don't understand the first sentence of this article where it says "HIV is misperceived as manageable." With today's treatments, support options, and drug programs, HIV is absolutely manageable. By saying HIV is not manageable, to me, puts us back 20 years ago. Did anyone else feel this way?

Inspirational stories! Its amazing to see the strength and courage these youth are fostering and expressing in an increasingly pacifist society. We need Leaders like these to step up and own HIV, to make the stories heard, to make the public understand, and most importantly, to demonstrate the power of the human voice and the human spirit once again!

I have to say I am not surprized about the rise in HIV/AIDS! There is no education. I had better education back when I was in my early 20's!!! I live in Orl,Fla. And the education programs and groups suck. It really makes no sense to me that we have such a high rate of exposure and invection. I have been POZ since 89 or shall I say thats when I got tested and got the results. I was one of the inviceable and here I am at 45(feb 22/B-Day) and I still get folks whom do not know how it is caught

I think it´s a blessing to know I am HIV positive so I can keep closer look of my health. I wish however to meet someone special who is poz as well (don´t even think about romance with a negative partner). 3 weeks after testing positive I decided to disclose my status because I didn´t want to experience the same as when I concealed my homosexuality. Started treatment four months later and became undetectable the same year! I am closer to my family now and never regret who I am. I LOVE LIFE!
