Youth in Motion: Thomas Davis uses dance to combat HIV stigma and create community

Thomas Davis has been living with HIV since 2013 and he has turned dance into a platform for self expression, motivation, and to end HIV stigma. Through the Catharsis Project, a grantee of AIDS United's Positive Organizing Project, Thomas and his fellow dancers use dance and multimedia as a way to share stories and experiences about the HIV epidemic - especially with younger generations. We were excited to connect with Thomas to learn more about his work, motivations, and future goals.

National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day: Recognizing Our Resilience

THis National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Dayoffers a national platform to not only re-focus the nation’s attention on the toll this disease has had on the African American community, but to also elevate the dialogue around the issues that are the drivers of HIV infection rates in our communities. But while so much of the discussion around race and HIV seems to conjure up negative perceptions about people in the communities most impacted, today I want to pose a more positive framing for the discussion. We must recognize and trust in the resilience and abilities of Black and brown people lead the way in identifying and applying strategies to end HIV in our communities.

Continuing Forward: Leadership For Now

I got a call in May 2016. “Jesse we are searching for the interim President & CEO of AIDS United…. Are you interested?” Without missing a heartbeat, I thought to myself, “You must do this – now!” My life changed immediately. I could never have predicted all the other changes coming in 2016. For all of us living with, working for, and affected by HIV in America, 2016 was a year of unexpected change.

Science Alone Can't Create a Just World

I often talk about what it was like testing HIV-positive in 1992, when the only treatment available was AZT. Today, I consider the bounty of treatments available and the many more in development. I think of what science has done for me, this field, and for so many others like me. Yet science alone can’t create a just world. In its purest form, science can be cold, calculated, and simply focused on what can be proven true or false. Science has delivered both cures and bombs, has been used for both good and bad. While science has the potential to fix much of what ails us — it won’t work for the advancement of us all without being firmly steeped in and led by our values.

Are you #DoingIt?

National HIV Testing Day is a reminder to get the facts, get tested, and get involved to take care of yourself and your partners. An estimated 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV, and that number grows by almost 45,000 every year. One in eight people who have HIV don't know it. That means they aren't getting the medical care they need to stay healthy and avoid passing HIV to others.
