Today is Worlds Aids Day. Take a moment to reflect on the lives lost to this devastating disease and realize that although medical breakthroughs have allowed HIV/AIDS to become a manageable disease in some parts of the world this epidemic is far from over.

If you're not infected by HIV then you're definitely affected by the disease in some way. Get tested, know your status, and protect yourself and your partner. There is life after an HIV diagnosis.

Loldarian.com is committed to sharing information on HIV/AIDS and individuals living with the virus and working to eradicate it throughout the year and not just on this designated day. Take a look at some of the brave men and women who work tirelessly to educate the world about HIV/AIDS every day of the year below.

That was my first time seeing this interview with Andre. His story is so interesting and he is refreshingly honest. I thought his story was interesting because of 1) how he contracted HIV, 2)how he tested negative at first--the test he took in May was approximately 3 months after the sex act in February, and usually you would test positive by then--Andre is a clear example of the reason to hold on to the old-school recommendations that it takes six months for the virus to show up in your system, and 3) how he was informed about his new status--someone should have been fired over that one.

I had to pause the interview several times to rewind and reflect on what Andre said. It was incredible.

Great post today, Darian.
