I Am Gay, a U.S. Army Veteran, HIV Positive ... and Voting for President Obama


A Video Blog

By Aaron Laxton

November 4, 2012

With the U.S. Presidential election only days away, I will take this moment to encourage you to get out the vote. I am not simply voting as a gay man, or as a veteran or even as a person living with HIV ... I am voting as a person who is encouraged by the path of our country in four years and I believe if given four more years that we will be even stronger!

My HIV Journey

Aaron Laxton

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, D.C. 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.
