Philadelphia AIDS Walk 2010
October 19, 2010
This past Sunday I walked in the Philadelphia AIDS Walk. This is something that I have been committed to doing since I launched POZIAM in 2007. So this walk was my 4th AIDS Walk ever. The night before my team the Philadelphia Falcons had a scrimmage soccer game with the New York Ramblers at Rutgers University in Camden, NJ. It was great to get out on a full field and play. We played for about 3 hours and had a blast with the Ramblers. I am only telling you about the scrimmage because you would think after playing soccer for 3 hours I would have no energy to walk 8.4 miles the following morning. Well nothing would of stopped me from walking. Not only does it help other living with HIV/AIDS in Philadelphia but it is a great way to meet local ASO's and get some life saving information.
Awareness and Awards -- Kick HIV Tournament
October 14, 2010
This past weekend I participated in and volunteered to help with the Kick HIV/Patae el VIH soccer tournament. As I may of mentioned I was really excited to be a part of this tournament. It brings two things that I hold near and dear to my heart (Soccer & HIV Awareness) together in one event. The tournament was on Saturday October 9th which was National Latino AIDS Awareness Day. Since it was NLAAD The event was completely ran in Spanish. It was great even though I don't speak much Spanish. It all took place in South Philly right next to Geno's Steaks. I was craving a cheese steak all day but refuse to stand in a line of 50 people to get one.
My Take on Condoms
October 13, 2010
Some sexually active people under 25 years of age associate condoms with a lack of trust, while others believe carrying them could imply sexual experience, which might be a plus for men but not necessarily for women. Young people assess a potential partner's disease risk, and the need for a condom, by their appearance and how well they know them socially.

Kicking HIV in Philly on National Latino AIDS Awareness Day
October 5, 2010
A few weeks ago I went to my soccer practice and happened to see that there were representatives from Philly Vax who handed out water bottles and other cool merchandise promoting safe sex and information informing us about the trials they are running. It is an amazing feeling to know that my teammates and team are so supportive in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
My ADAP Crisis Summit Experience
August 11, 2010
With over 2,000 people who are not getting their life-saving medication, this year's summit was extremely important. The best part about the summit is that you meet people from all walks of life who are all about helping those with HIV/AIDS. The topics at the summit were all very interesting. They ranged from the waiting lists to housing to health care. With so much information, I was glad to hear we (aaa+) would provide a zip drive with all the slides from the speakers' presentations. It was a great to take home and review anything I may have missed or didn't understand.
Sports and Support: An Entry From an HIV-Positive Athlete
July 13, 2010
You may have read in my previous blogs that I have been playing soccer for over 20 years. I have always enjoyed soccer since I was 6 years old. So of course I have come down with a case of World Cup Fever. It is very exciting since the World Cup is only every four years. With the arrival of David Beckham a few years ago to the L.A. Galaxy, major league team soccer (MLS ) in America has become more popular.
My Stages of PRIDE
June 1, 2010
So this month is Pride Month on TheBody.com and, after thinking about the topic, I realized that I went through many stages of Pride in my 31 years.
ADAP Saves Lives -- President Obama, End the Wait!
April 27, 2010
As you may of read in a previous blog that I just started taking HIV/AIDS meds in December of 2009. My counts are undetectable for the first time and I owe this change to ADAP -- AIDS Drugs Assistance Programs. ADAP provides HIV/AIDS related prescription drugs to uninsured and underinsured individuals living with HIV/AIDS.
The Positive Pitch
I describe myself as a "positive person with purpose." My goal is to help people living with HIV/AIDS discover similarities in each other ... and form friendships. I want to ease the shock of a diagnosis and remind people that our dreams are not infected. I am also an HIV/AIDS cyber-activist, radio show host, blogger and social network guru.
