Harold R. "Scott" Scott: Me, at my home. A 30-year poz survivor, dancing in a sudden rain shower and living life. It's okay to be a kid from time to time, even at 57 years old, and dance like no one is watching.

Yanza R. Collins: I took this picture at Christ Community Health Services, which is a local, federally funded clinic that provides Ryan White Services to the community. This picture was taken because people tend to forget that Christ was ever loving, and at the end of the day, LOVE is a major component for everyone especially those living and thriving with HIV.

Eric Novak: First day of fall, but still feels very much like summer. Today was a typical day for me—eye doctor appointment and one hour at the gym. HIV is still a major part of my daily life, although as I age, comorbidities—cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, etc.—have taken more of a toll on my health. But just as with HIV/AIDS, I face the challenges head on with the determination that I can't be stopped.

Bradford McIntyre, 67, HIV-positive 35 years: My life is not about death and dying, but about living moment to moment-in the NOW! The people in my life and all our caring and sharing for one another has filled these years with endless affirmations that life is about LOVE.  I am very grateful to everyone in my life!

Shawn Decker: It's been 32 years since my HIV diagnosis, and here I am just having a normal day at the coffee shop with my love. I'm wearing one of my favorite shirts, The AIDS Memorial shirt, because I don't forget those who we've lost. Part of enjoying this day with HIV, and as many more as I am fortunate to have moving forward, is recognizing how special it is to be alive. And how special the souls are that lean in and remind us of that from time to time.

Mark A. Davis: Our fight doesn't pause for loneliness. Death by suicide and overdose is real among people living with HIV/AIDS, all LGBTQ+ generations, and our allies. Weigh it, stamp it, face it! I carry placards as a suicide attempt survivor living with HIV 31 years. In 2003 I started Pink & Blues peer-run support group, a safe space to explore our dualities with complex lived-experiences. We are the experts; start a group near you, and live with pride in recovery. TALK=LIFE! www.pinkandblues.info

Bryan Heitz: Every day is a day with HIV. Surviving with HIV for 13 years. Appreciate living in a time with efficacious meds and access. U=U. In the photo, my knuckle tattoo is visible. It reads: We Are All HIV+. This same tattoo adorns the knuckles of Diamanda Gals, a fierce advocate, artist, musician, and warrior for people living with HIV/AIDS since the beginning. With her permission, I tattooed this as an homage and a reminder of the legions we have lost throughout the pandemic. No shame. No stigma.

Unlike the civil servants who work there, we are the experts on what we need!

Bryan DuBac: Older & Bolder. When I was diagnosed in 2000, complications with my first meds made it difficult and unbearable. The outlook was not good. And now in 2019, I AM: 1. Undetectable. 2. Working at Miracle of Love Inc., an ASO in Orlando, the city with the second highest new infection rate. 3. Participating in the Smart Ride in November, a 165-mile ride from Miami to Key West to raise money and fight stigma! 4. Helping others because so many have helped and supported me!

Jennifer Jako: A few years ago, I started learning about foraging for wild food, and this is a photo of me finding chanterelle mushrooms in the forest. Hiking in nature is a big part of my staying healthy and fit with HIV. Each hike is an adventure. Spending time in nature is very peaceful and helps me let go of the things that are stressful in life. I’ve been tHrIVing for 28 years.

Janine Brignola: Positive mama, negative son! Thought it would be fitting to pose in my car after spending the better part of the last year driving across the South, with this kid right next to me, on a mission to learn about the unique challenges present in southern states pertaining to HIV.

James: Healthy is as healthy does. My life is full of love, joy, and discovery. I strive to make that same thing a reality for those around me. HIV made me available to recognize hope and realize potential. Because of all I’ve experienced, including living with HIV, I am awake, aware, compassionate, and living with authenticity and light. Cheers!

Marissa Gonzalez: Life is filled with ups and downs and it's not every day that you can work with a group of people who get you, accept you, and love you for who you are. Working to fight HIV stigma in our community is just one of the things that connects us. I'm surrounded by people I can call friends! ❤ A day with HIV is about family, friends, love, laughter, crazy personalities, acceptance, and joy! Don’t assume who is living with HIV; can you tell who just by looking at this picture?
