More Than an AIDS Virus

HIV doesn't make me unattractive, undesirable or a bad catch. HIV is simply one of the many things that makes me who I am.

The sum total of me is a great man who'd make a great buddy for another great man. My buddy's not gonna love me or not love me because of HIV. When he looks at me, he's gonna see more than a virus. He's gonna see a reflection of his own soul, beaming back with smiling and loving eyes.

I am so much more than an AIDS virus, and someday, another great man will feel the same exact way.
