HIV Youth Project
« on: August 01, 2007, 08:29:43 PM »
Hey everyone. After testing positive in early July, I tried going online to find more information and support and as a gay, Asian American college student, I found sites targeting HIV-positive youth and people of color to be terribly lacking -- save this website/forum. It has helped get me through some pretty dark times. Now that the worst has passed, I feel compelled to do something about my situation. So I got to thinking about creating a website that would particularly cater to positive youth, LGBT-identified, women and communities of color. I admit that this project may prove to be a little too ambitious, but I thought it would be well worth the try.

So, the Project is now accepting personal story and article submissions on your experiences on testing positive and/or living with HIV. We are also open to any other submissions, such as artwork, spoken word, blog links and etc.

If you have any questions or would like to help out with the project, please check our website at http://hivyouthproject.org

Moderators, please move this thread to the most appropriate sub-forum.

Good for you. I was talking to my ASO and told her that more people are needed who are poz to talk to those who are just finding out. When I found out none of the folks I was dealing with were HIV+. How can anyone know how I feel unless they have walked a mile in my shoes. I think thats a great idea Cali. Run with it.
Meds doing well so far.

Hi, the idea of this project is really good.

I wanted to advice you to get in contact with AIESEC, it is a global network of students with offices in over 80 countries, since couple of years ago they are running a learning network initiative about hiv/aids prevention in several countries.

You can contact them at genesis-driveteam@ai.aiesec.org and also visit their blog at http://genesis.myaiesec.net/

Perhaps AIESEC in the US (www.aiesecus.org) is taking part of this initiative too, i think you both can cooperate closely.
