We are so excited that Adrian C. decided to join ThePozLife. This took place at USCA in Patricks room as he asked for Thomas and Adrian C. to come so that we all could chat. After inviting and having Adrian so graciously agree to come on board Patrick asked him if he ever wanted to share his story. Adrian at 12am pacific time responded, “how about now?” Hours later after interviewing, talking and sharing experiences the film was completed and the team worked hard to prepare for the debut of Adrian Castellanos. Well without further delay we want to share with you his story.
“I’ve decided to share my story because it’s time HIV positive folks began living sin verguenza. Without shame or fear. I feel that an important aspect of ending this pandemic is engaging in dialogue. I hope that my story will get people talking and educating themselves. Knowledge is power and in this case it will be the end of the virus. I am excited to be a part of ThePozLife.com because I will be putting a face, along with my new colleagues, to the epidemic. We are bringing the issue of HIV out of the shadows, and facing it head on. I am happy that we are creating a space for people like us, people of color, to be comfortable enough to talk about HIV and AIDS. I never really thought of myself as an activist, but the moment I heard that I am positive I knew I had to get moving.” – Adrian C.
