Jeremiah Johnson: In honor of the #adaywithHIV campaign, Tym and I were going to do a live demonstration showing his PrEP and my undetectable status preventing sexual transmission of the virus in real time-but we decided that might be frowned upon by the Facebook overlords. So instead, I'm posting just a tease from the super fun photo session we had yesterday with Fwee Carter. 😉 Over eleven years of living with the virus, and I've never felt sexier, more successful, and more loved. May we all work to ensure that every person living with HIV around the globe has unfettered access to free treatment, knows that U=U and that they can fuck without fear, and has all the love and support they need to thrive.

This is my favorite photograph I took from a series I had taken at the Rodin Museum. It is a wonderful reminder of how far I have come. I was diagnosed 18 years ago. I didn't see a future for myself back then, but now the possibilities are endless. I am now the breeder/owner handler of a rare breed called Azawakh, and show in dog shows all over the east coast. As I sit here today typing this, I am grateful for all the support I've gotten throughout the years. 18 years HIV positive, going strong

Jennifer Vaughn: Today is “A Day with HIV” - September 23rd. This is just me taking a cruise in the car with my husband (who doesn’t have HIV). I take a pill a day, but other than that I don’t feel, look or live any differently than I did before I was diagnosed. #hivpositive #adaywithhiv #serodifferent #lifegoeson

Marnina Miller: HIV hasn’t controlled who I chose to date. It hasn’t hindered me in my career, shortened my life expectancy, or any other weird rumor/stigmatizing thing you may hear. It has, however, made me live life without limits and given me the best damn chosen family ever! Just #adaywithHIV.

Jeffrey Long: A Day with HIV consists of lunch with my mother, my rock, and biggest supporter of all time. Given so many months to live after diagnosis, I'm still here 15 years later, living undetectable.  We are always out advocating or doing outreach and Community Club work together. I love giving back to my communities. ❤ My friends call her, “Thug Momma”- you don’t mess around with this strong Native Woman! #ADayWithHIVAndMyMomma

Paul Attinello: I look a bit tired here. Very long-term survivor of HIV; probably infected in San Francisco, in 1981–2; diagnosed in Los Angeles, April 1987. Four continents, teaching in universities, writing about AIDS and other things; being in and caring for support groups; psychoanalysis patients. Thinking I'd like to get past survival, to enjoyment.

Anthony Adero Olweny: Living with HIV has opened new opportunities and provided great lived experiences to be ourselves. I learn to be myself  and love more. I appreciate life more and enjoy present moment positively. Jim and I reflect on what it means to be self advocates and also to be part of a thriving community of people living with HIV.

I’m relaxing in my backyard after unpacking from my honeymoon, getting dinner cooking in the crock pot for my husband when he gets off work, running a few errands in town, and I got some work done on my local HIV advocacy efforts. I’m happy, healthy, and now a HUSBAND. I’m loving my new normal as this is what #adaywithhiv now looks like for me!

Bryan C. Jones: Went to a high school reunion-type event, and was proud to wear my red ribbon. Surprisingly, I got many encouraging comments, and remarks at one point I found myself answering many questions from several people who wanted to know more about HIV, but had been afraid to ask before.

Reverend Andrena Ingram: I’m a long-term survivor/thriver of over 30 years. I woke up this morning not feeling like being bothered. I’ve learned to live with my depression as I learn new the new normals of being disabled due to heart issues, among other health challenges. This is Lily, my furry companion. I didn’t feel like getting out of bed, never mind getting dressed! I will just relax and chill today.
