Welcome

 

me april bdayWelcome to Alex Sparrowhawk: HIV & Me, for the past four years I have been living with HIV and the last year of that openly and with no shame. I use my blog to talk about my own personal journey, my opinions and thoughts and to fight for what is right and fair for all People Living with HIV.

Unashamedly an activist, advocate and voice for all things HIV and LGBT awareness and rights related. As my body continues to battle the virus I continue to fight the fear and ignorance that leads to the stigma associated with HIV and AIDS.

Thank you for reading
Alex x

    Hi Alex, I re-Tweet @THTorguk & @EJAF Tweets to my 324,000 + Twitter followers & noticed yours with THT tonight.

    I did this feature on Justin Washington the other day & am now organising him a modelling shoot in the USA. He’s going to be sharing his video blogs with me & my followers.

    If you would like to donate a feature about you & your activism & honesty I will also promote it to my followers.

    This is a big issue that affects creatives & some say we were targeted for our high physic abilities that circumnavigate the fluoride & the water etc etc etc.

      Hi, I’d be happy to, let me know what sort of thing you would like?

        HI Alex, maybe something that you have already written. It’s just the message that we want to get across, firstly safe sex, then should they become HIV + it is not the end of the world. So all the plus aspects of being in a gay or straight world living with HIV.

        Somehow i’ve managed to miss becoming HIV, though it could happen to me next week. But I just want people to know the good & bad sides to being young and living with HIV. I have many friends that are HIV + but coming from a younger persons perspective is very important. Justins story hopefully jolted a few people with his honesty & bravery.
