AID Atlanta and Eight Peace Productions have partnered together to bring an affirming message to black gay men in the wake of the recent HIV/AIDS data from The Center for Disease Control.

The CDC reports that HIV infections are up sharply among black gay and bisexual men under the age of 30 -- the only race and risk group in the United States to experience a significant increase between 2006 and 2009.

Charles Stephens, a Project Specialist at AID Atlanta, tells loldarian.com that "the video was created to focus on the resilience of young black gay men."

Watch From Where I Stand in the clip below. Feel free to spread it far and wide. Our community can't hear this message enough.

I think it's because of greater awareness, and promos like "From Where I Stand" and your blog, Darian, that the increase in HIV infection isn't higher. Information is power. In spite of the high infection rate, I think that overall, people are beginning to get the message. We have a long way to go, but we sure have come a long way to get here. Thanks for sharing this information.
