Christian Kiley

Christian Daniel Kiley is a filmmaker, HIV awareness educator, husband, uncle, brother and reluctant millennial who was diagnosed with HIV in 2007. At the time of his diagnosis, he refrained from disclosing his status to anyone -- friends, family, let alone the Internet. After five years of isolation, he decided to disclose to his family, friends and then the Internet. Since then, he has earned his MFA in Media Art from Emerson College in Boston, Mass. He is the creator of the Web series, Unsure/Positive, which released its first season via Vimeo on Demand in December 2015. An actor, writer, director, teacher and sci-fi nerd, he also speaks to Boston-area youth about HIV awareness with an emphasis on prevention and destigmatization. Although his dry wit is sometimes mistaken for indifference, his heart has taken up permanent residence on his sleeve. Your questions, opinions, letters and suggestions are welcome at unsurepositive@
