Love and Relationships, Positive Style

What's your advice to HIV-positive people looking for love? What's your experience been?


Dr. Gail Barouh

Heriberto Sanchez Soto

Executive Director, Hispanic AIDS Forum (HAF), Manhattan, N.Y.

I see far too many people with HIV give up to the mentality that HIV is going to destroy them tomorrow and so they think they only have a little bit of time to make up for it. They give up their jobs. They give up hope. They give up on love. They internalize too much. I want HIV-positive people to be positive about their lives. I want them to believe that HIV is manageable and that they can have a lasting, productive life. I want them to rediscover themselves, the dreamers, the people with aspirations and life goals and go back to pursuing them.
