My Does HIV Look Like Me? Video

Three years ago I came to a cross roads in my life. I am not sure if it was a mid-life crisis or just me coming to the realization that all human beings have a purpose. At first I wanted to start sharing my story as a speaker. When I was looking for HIV/AIDS organizations to get involved with a google search returned Hope's Voice. I saw that the speakers toured the United States and spoke to high schools and colleges. I instantly thought to myself  "that is what I want to do" I saw they were taking video submissions for a campaign called Does HIV Look Like Me ?  Below is the video I sent in and was chosen as a part of the campaign..I don' think I would be where I am today if I didn't take part in this campaign. Filming this video was my first step towards excepting my status and moving passed the shock of my diagnosis.

In hopes of inspiring,


  1. Robert, Love that, and love what you say, it would be awesome to see more people like you speak to their status.. I hope that one day soon we will see that.

  2. You are doing exactly what I hope to do with spreading a postive message and educating people. I just found out that I am positive on June 20th of this year and it's been one hell of a roller coaster. But even in the beginning when I had first found out, I have always felt that there was a reason for all this - something good can come of it - and it will.

    Thanks for the inspiration and all that you do. I wish there were more folks like you out in the world.

    Take care.
