A Better AIDS Dream

In the 1980s, AIDS was my generation's worst nightmare.

In 1985, AIDS was my worst nightmare.

But a funny thing happened on the way to a life expectancy of 12-18 months.

I stayed in the game. The game changed. A better dream was born.

A quarter of a century later, I'm still living with HIV/AIDS, but some better dreams have come true, namely, living well with HIV/AIDS for 25 years and counting.
