You have a lot of value in this world -- and it's understood and respected by those that are closest to you. Do not allow being diagnosed with HIV to shame you into feeling that your life is pointless, meaningless or over.
The time is now to continue to make smart investments in TB and HIV control. This concerted effort will strengthen health systems and go a long way to address the basic needs of people living throughout the world.
Whether it's bus advertisements providing information on where to get tested, in-school educational campaigns, or televised public service announcements advocating for safer sex, HIV won't go anywhere unless we all treat it like the monster that it is.
People who are protesting Donald Trump's events are not infringing on his First Amendment rights or his speech in any way. If Donald Trump decides to shut down his events (because of his own reckless past speech and what it has inspired in his followers) that is his choice.

The basic Republican position isn't that hard to understand. It is: "We are going to deny Barack Obama a third Supreme Court pick, unless Hillary Clinton wins the presidency." That is precisely what some of them believe.
. You felt my pain at Clinton's gaffe, and you pledged to do something about HIV/AIDS in 2016. Within days, your campaign offered a plan. I hate to sound unappreciative, but your plan seems a little thin.
When actor Charlie Sheen appeared on the Today Show to reveal his positive HIV diagnosis, he shared the stage with his physician of four years: Dr. Ro...
Unlike Bernie Sanders-- and certainly unlike any of the Republican candidates who seem to long for the bad old days when we were dying daily and AIDS was considered God's punishment for homosexuality-- Hillary Clinton has been there for people with HIV/AIDS.
Regardless of what one thinks of Donald Trump and the displays of religious intolerance, xenophobia, racism and sexism shown throughout his bid for the White House, to suggest that he deserves AIDS only perpetuates the dangerous stigma against the disease and people living with it.
The WHO and UNAIDS have shown that if we close the gap in treatment access, and double the number of people on HIV treatment by 2020, we will stop new infections by 2030. If we don't scale-up to this level, the AIDS epidemic will continue to outrun our response.
I too want queerness to be more than about just sex -- because living in a world where Republican candidates still reduce our community to animalistic, immoral heathens, it does us no favors to reduce ourselves to this one tiny piece of who we are.
These organizations and their leaders work tirelessly every single day to erase the threat of HIV/AIDS from the planet and restore and empower lives.
I didn't want to stir controversy, particularly at this time of contention in the US. I was simply cleaning house one day. I was bringing in a ladder. The ladder hit a stack of Bibles, literally, and they fell.
This election cycle, it took Nancy Reagan 's death, ironically, to get a discussion going among the candidates about an issue important to LGBT people. But there's more to talk about on that issue -- actually talk, beyond the position papers -- and there are more issues affecting LGBT people to have a dialogue about.
To be clear, the Reagans did not start a national conversation about HIV and AIDS. That distinction belongs to generations of brave lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, along with straight allies, who started not just a conversation but a movement that continues to this day.
