Our visibility is important to disarm and eradicate stigma! On holiday in Brittany, France from the UK, where we live. My photo was taken with our collie Harvey; my husband Steve took the pic! We visited San Francisco last December 16 for my 30th anniversary of living with HIV. We met many long-term survivors there, who were so warm, welcoming, and inspiring! A few years back, I never would've believed of being so publicly out with confidence and courage. HIV has given me a strong, emotional drive!

Harry Wingfield: Once again, I am at work on A Day with HIV. After being diagnosed with AIDS in 1990, and spending 12 years on disability, I regained health with combination treatment, and started working full time in research administration. When I'm not at work, I'm in my garden, at Disney with my husband, reading, or writing. I'm currently writing my memoirs, and am on the chapter where I get my AIDS diagnosis. The working title is "Closets." Posting like this makes sure I stay out of them!

Tamara: I got up ready to go workout and Pound! It's been my new favorite addiction for the last year, which is great because the good Lord knows I've been addicted to far worse things. But I get up amped to workout with my #PoundPosse around with the pros leading the beats to an amazing, powerful, electrified workout that leaves my body thinking about all the sore muscles I'm feeling.

Alexander Smith: Yoga sings to my mind and challenges flexibility. In Dancer’s Pose I open my heart into a rhythm of compassion, and playfully invite myself to move one day at a time, and groove with gratitude and passion for life! I pay attention to the steady beat of my privilege with access to medication and excellent health care. And I'll surrender to my highest intention. May I share my music, gifts, and talents with others, and invite them to contribute their melody to the universal symphony.

Laurie Priddy: 27 years later and my heart is breaking that we are still fighting for accessible affordable healthcare! Make a call every day to your representatives! PWN-CO SAVED MY LIFE by lifting my voice! This latest round of attacks on the HIV community and the LGBTQ community has me outraged. We must all ACT UP AND FIGHT BACK! That is what living with HIV is for me today! I looked and felt better on November 7, 2016! The past fights for HIV have all become present fights again for HIV!

Mel: I chose this photo to show a part of my day when my HIV is not a focus, when it is not given an importance as part of my life, when I am simply teaching mindfulness. I am open about my status, but in this class, I demonstrate how our thoughts are like the flakes in a snow globe. What can we see when it is shaken, all mixed up? What can we see if I hold it still and allow the flakes to settle? When we are able to see the flakes clearly, we can begin to direct our focus and make wise choices.

Eryck Dillard: I took this picture in my office. Though I'm not living with HIV, I can directly relate because this is my community and a day has never gone by that I haven't fought for my brother, sisters, and non gender conforming persons who are living with HIV. This is our movement and this is our liberation!

The Global Forum on MSM & HIV: Taking my daily pill of PrEP is a way to remind myself that I am incredibly fortunate for all the support that has empowered me and allowed me to take my health into my own hands. PrEP is not just for me, but for all of my partners. We are all responsible for the health of our community. #ADaywithHIV

Anthony Johnson: Taken after my osteopathic manipulation therapy. Living long-term and aging with HIV brings on new issues. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic pain two years ago. My HIV specialist is also a doctor of osteopathy and had been a blessing in my treatment of all my issues. I truly appreciate every person on my healthcare team. They make a real difference in my life and the life of others.
