Greater Than AIDS Testimonials From Masculine Men (Video)
Over the last two years the Greater Than AIDS organization has aggressively been promoting not only HIV testing, but also prevention and awareness amongst people of color as well. They’ve released countless television, print, billboard and online public service advertisements featuring everyone from everyday people to high profile celebrities.Excerpt from their website, GreatThan.Org:
The Greater Than AIDS movement responds to the AIDS crisis in the United States, in particular the severe and disproportionate epidemic among Black Americans. Through a national media campaign and community outreach, Greater Than AIDS aims to elevate the public’s knowledge and understanding of HIV/AIDS and confront the stigma surrounding the disease.Greater Than AIDS is about the power of individuals acting together to achieve a greater goal – in this case, reducing the spread of HIV. By stressing unity, hope and empowerment, Greater Than AIDS inspires each and every one of us – in our relationships, families and communities – to do our part to stem HIV/AIDS.
While the organization has highlighted testimonials from a wide range of Black and Latino men and women, the most “home hitting” ads for me featured MASCULINE MEN OF COLOR (both HIV positive and negative) briefly telling their stories of how HIV and being Gay has affected their lives.These videos demonstrate not only that, for many masculine gay men, there is no definitive way to tell they are Gay and/or HIV positive…they also show that we all have very different stories, paths and complicated lives to lead.
