I remember being at my desk in the office and I lost it. I remember just crying my little eyes out. Having to reconcile telling other people 'You should be using condoms' when I clearly wasn't being safe enough with my own self felt so hypocritical. I'd say the only difference in my life is I go home to take a [anti-HIV] pill. When I became HIV positive it was difficult for me, because I didn't want to then have to say 'I'm HIV positive' and then have to explain the whole gay thing.

I can love myself again, and I can help others and teach others to be that roadmap for them to love themselves.

[They] told me 'You shouldn't talk about HIV'. That [was when] I felt most closeted by it, [when] I felt most oppressed by it. I felt the weight lifted off my shoulders – the burden felt gone. I realized I needed to take the information to my platform and not only share my HIV status, but teach. I remember breaking down sobbing. After my parents found out, it didn't matter who else knows. I personally feel like being black, gay and HIV positive in America, [that] something is trying to kill me every day. But something is trying to kill me every day, and I'm still here.

I feel like there is something to this journey that I'm on. And I feel like being present, being able to live out loud and be confident in the life that I am living will hopefully help teach someone something new either about being gay or being black, or [that] being HIV-positive isn't something to be ashamed about.
