Because HIV Positive Black, gay men 50 years old, like me, fuckin’ matters!

Older, wiser, and undetectable ! I was diagnosed with AIDS over 20 years ago!

Celebrating life!

So much hatred in the world and as a Black, gay, HIV positive man I’ve endured a lot of discrimination and hatred.

However I chose to be better-not bitter!

I will not apologize for who and what I am.

As I approach turning 50 in 2017, I’ve learned a lot about life and myself: I’m a survivor!

It’s been so hot in NYC that I developed a heat rash on my face, neck and back. It looked so bad that I had to leave work.

I’ve never had heat rash before, but my doc confirmed it. I was prescribed meds.

Anyways, my fiancé wasn’t about to let my fears about my skin and a rash stop him from being all over me. “You can’t give me your rash, so scoot over!” With air conditioner on blast we fell asleep and I woke up earlier than him but his heavy ass was hard to push off ❤️😂😉

I will always remember how I felt when Grace Jones, walked into Barnes and Noble bookstore, at Union Square, in NYC for her book signing. I was awe struck❤️❤️❤️

She was late, but her energy and beauty made up for her tardiness.

When it was my turn to walk up to her to sign my book, I marveled at her flawless complexion, and even though she was tipsy, her sincerity and appreciation for her fans was so obvious ! We had small talk, but there was a long line behind me, so I had to quickly leave.
