My HIV Journey
Is AIDS Funny?
December 2, 2011
Is something that has killed more people that all the world wars together funny? Is something that has picked through an entire generation funny? If not then why do we simply dismiss the topic with jokes regarding AIDS?
My HIV Journey Channel Bloopers

Decided to have a little fun and show you that even though my videos look as if I never make mistakes, I do. Here is a few clips and for the record I curse when I mess up on a video.
My HIV Journey
I am simply a guy who on June 6, 2011, received the news that over 33 million people have received: I am HIV positive. I decided in that split moment to record the journey that I was embarking on so that I might help others as they receive that news.
I am not a doctor and I do not endorse any agenda other than simply living a healthy life. I am an activist and advocate and simply want to make the world a better place. I hold a degree in sociology and psychology. I am a product of the Missouri Foster System and this is one of my main passions, second only to the work I do with HIV/AIDS outreach and prevention.
I embrace a sex-positive model. People are going to have sex; it is a natural part of who we are. However we need to make sure that it is safe. I can be found on weekends throughout St. Louis, Missouri, passing out condoms and safe-sex kits.
Whether in St. Louis, DC or around the nation, I always jump at the chance to help change not only policies to better serve those that need help but to also change the landscape of the society that we live in.
