Justin's HIV Journal

Monday, November 24, 2014


Friend and fellow HIV Activist Jack Mackenroth has come up with an amazing way to combat HIV Stigma.

In social media and dating sites (especially in the gay community) we hear, "I'm clean" meaning I don't have HIV and I'm STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) free. These words, "I'm clean" only further stigmatized people living with HIV.  "I'm clean" gives the perception that people living with HIV are somehow dirty.  This is an awesome HIV Campaign and I'm very proud to participate.  Here are INSTRUCTIONS on how you can become apart of his movement.  

1) Take a  selfie or Vine video of yourself in the shower.** NO EXPLICIT NUDITY**
2) Post your photo on Moovz and all social media platforms with the caption "Take HIV Shower Selfie Challenge raise $$ for AIDS cure bit.ly/CUREAIDS #weareALLclean"
3) Challenge 3 or more other people to participate!
4) (Optional) DONATE!! Please consider a small donation if you are able. Every penny counts! bit.ly/CUREAIDS
5) On World AIDS Day: Monday, December 1st, please change all your social media profile pix to your shower selfie photo and spread the word!!

Justin's HIV Journal: HIV Equal Campaign (Father and Son Team Up)

Justin's HIV Journal was very happy to help out in the HIV Equal Campaign along side the DC Center and Whitman Walker Health. 

The point of this campaign is to show that YES we ALL have an HIV status...Do you know yours?

HIV Equal is an international multimedia campaign that aims to end HIV stigma and promote HIV testing by creating a social art movement that changes the way people think about HIV and which reopens the national dialogue about HIV.

 My son Lundyn was very proud to participate.  
He knows how important it is for one to know their HIV Status
