I thought this was nice and inspiring.

Pakistan's HIV cricket team are positive role models
By Mark Tutton, CNN

London, England (CNN) -- Cricket is the national sport in Pakistan, but what makes the First Positive Cricket Team stand out from all the other Karachi-based clubs is that its members are all HIV positive.
The team was put together a year ago by the Pakistan Society, an NGO working for the rights of people living with HIV. They played -- and won -- their first match in August, and haven't looked back.

  If you look in the front row on the left, the guy with the glasses on...  I think that's Nicholas Cage, never had a clue he was Pakistani.

It's amazing.... perhaps just as amazing that the shirts are all in English.  Considering that Pakistan is Islamic...... I would not have expected this there.

If they can do it than certainly Western countries can do similar things to combat stigma.

Don't obsess over the wrong things.  Life isn't about your numbers, it isn't about this forum, it isn't about someone's opinion.  It's about getting out there and enjoying it.   I am a person with HIV - not the other way around.
