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.

New Data on HIV Among MSM: Better Knowledge. Better Response?

A new analysis of data released earlier this week by CDC officials and researchers from Emory University provided an improved estimate of the prevalence of HIV in 2012 among men who have sex with men (MSM) in the U.S. The analysis is in a report published in JMIR Public Health and Surveillance. The report features prevalence of diagnosed HIV infection in 2012 and rates of new HIV diagnoses in 2013 among MSM in U.S. states, metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs), and counties. The report is further evidence of the huge burden of HIV among MSM. The national estimated HIV prevalence among MSM in 2012 was 15%. The national estimate of diagnosed HIV infection among MSM in 2012 was 11%. The data demonstrate the stark and disproportionate impact of HIV on MSM in the South.

The Veil of HB2: Spotlighting Transgender Issues to Cover Multi-Issue Legislative Attacks

Last month, North Carolina enacted HB2, a law that targets transgender people while also broadly attacking workers and local democracy. The full implications of HB2 have not been recognized in much of the media coverage, both in terms of the specific harms to trans workers of color, particularly trans women of color, as well as the broader effect of the law on all workers in North Carolina. By recognizing the full scope of the law while also centering our strategies as advocates for the communities most impacted, we’ll be in a stronger position to fight similar bills when introduced around the country.
