Hey Johnathan:
I wanted to tell you I think it is great that you are coming to terms with your status and sexuality in the public domain. While I totally get that both are very private issues and every person deals with each in different ways, I do feel that there is a lot of stigma, bias and ignorance in the world about HIV and the GLBT community. I personally have no issues dealing with my sexuality but being hiv+ is a different story. Your postings are helping me so thank you for putting yourself out there.
I'm wondering if you are familiar with Pedro Zamora of MTV Real World fame? He was an outspoken advocate for people with HIV/AIDS and was openly so on the SF show back in the mid 1990's. MTV just aired a movie on his life which was very good. You should check it and him out. He was such an inspiration to me and so many others, and very well may be for you too.
You are awesome Johnathan! Keep doing what you are doing and fighting the good fight! We need more discussion and awareness in the public domain about HIV.
Be well,
