San Francisco, California
Phil Diers: My partner took this photo of me today in San Francisco after I went to the gym, where I did weight training and a short swim. In August, I competed in swimming at Gay Games 10 in Paris, France, where I had so much support and encouragement from my teammates, coaches, my partner, and close friends. It was very uplifting! I've been swimming with a mostly LGBTQ masters swim club since 2009. I've been HIV positive since 1986 and diagnosed with AIDS in 1995 including hospitalizations. Today, I feel great!
