TheBody.com mourns the loss of our beloved community member, Antron-Reshaud Olukayode, who died Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017. Antron was a self-described "artivist," spokesperson for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's "Let's Stop HIV Together" campaign, and writer of the blog With Love ATL for TheBody.com. Concerning his role as activist and artist, he told TheBody.com in 2014, "I just want to be able to fight in a very creative way, that I can leave my mark on here, when I do leave -- and say that I fought the good fight, and I left some color for the world."

Well done, Antron.

TheBody.com celebrates Antron's life with this collection of remembrances from friends and community organizations that he touched.
