A Day with HIV in America

[Video Description: A series of photos of people of different races, sexes, and ages, accompanied by instrumental music, is interspersed with the text: "A Day With HIV In America—Sept. 21st / Positive or Negative / We're All Affected / By HIV / Take Your Best Shot / Get In The Picture / A Day With HIV In America / Sept 21st / www.ADaywithHIVinAmerica.com."]

Tomorrow, Positively Aware magazine is inviting all residents of the US to participate in their national photo essay, A Day with HIV in America. Participants are asked to send in a photo of themselves, showing a scene of their everyday lives. You don't have to be HIV+ to participate: "Our objective is to create a sense of community among everyone who is concerned about HIV. Positive or negative, we are ALL affected by the virus."

All of us have been directly or indirectly affected by HIV. Participating in the project acknowledges the breadth of the lives that HIV touches. Think of it as a living AIDS quilt—the faces of people who are surviving with HIV, and/or people who have survived losing partners, friends, family members, colleagues, teachers, heroes, or icons.

Go here to find out more and submit your photo.
