Somebody to Love Me and My HIV

I love my HIV-positive body. You can, too, regardless of your HIV status, and never acquire my virus.

HIV-negative people can have safe sex with HIV-positive people, so not having sex with someone because he or she is HIV-positive is a form of prejudice and discrimination. And ignorance.

I deserve to be with a man who's smart enough to know that I don't have to be a threat to his health and safety, a man who's educated about safe sex, or at the very least, open-minded enough to educate himself about the subject, not run away simply because a great guy like me is living with HIV/AIDS.

I love my HIV-positive and I deserve my deepest dreams come true.
