Word on the Street: Experiences Disclosing One's HIV Status

 3/11 

Ahmad Salcido

Ahmad Salcido, San Francisco, Calif.; Diagnosed in 2007

The first person I told I was positive was my best friend Ramsey. He's the one that extended his hand to me and said, "Look, I live in San Francisco. San Francisco has these great agencies, has this great program for gay and HIV-positive people, so you're more than welcome to come over."

In Islam, we believe that if you're a true Muslim, God takes care of your problems before they come to you. It's funny because I've known him for five years, and it's like, "OK, when I met you, I met you for a reason. God knew what was going to happen, so he put you there as my little angel."
