My Life in 60 Seconds
March 12, 2013
A little over a week ago, Gwenn saw a post on Twitter about a contest put on by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation and the Vail Film Festival. You had to make a creative video about how HIV has impacted you, and also use the phrase “keep the promise on AIDS”, which is a nod to AHF’s film, “Keep the Promise: The Global Fight Against AIDS “. (Debuting at the Vail Film Festival at the end of the month.)
Oh, and your entry had to be 30 or 60 seconds. So, here was my winning entry. This time, I drew my life in chalk. To prove I’m multi-faceted.
Hope everyone is well!

VLOG: Draw My Life
February 26, 2013
Here’s our latest video- it’s a Draw My Life video. A lot of YouTube Vloggers are doing them, and Gwenn thought my life would work well in the context. And I do like to draw, so I gave it a shot, thinking that a Draw My Life with a little story about HIV floating around out there might educate some folks… plus, it was fun to do. A lot of work, but totally worth it.
Regarding our last video and the subject of How To Survive A Plague… was bummed that they didn’t win for Best Documentary. I haven’t seen the others that were nominated, but I’m glad we have the time capsule that is this very powerful movie.
Hope your week has started off on the right track.
VLOG: Movie Night… How to Survive a Plague
February 19, 2013
In this week’s video, Gwenn and I discuss How to Survive a Plague- the movie about the early days of treatment activism. Our fingers our crossed for this incredible film, as it is up for Best Documentary at the Oscars this Sunday.
Hope everyone is doing well.
VLOG: Be Our Valentine?
February 11, 2013
This week’s video is all about V-Day, and why you shouldn’t count yourself out if you are living with a sexually transmitted infection. Be our Valentine and Share this video with friends! Much love to you all, thanks for reading and watching.
VLOG: Have You Been Tested?
February 5, 2013
Our latest vlog is about HIV testing… check it out!
Last week’s vlog was about the difference between HIV and AIDS. You might know the difference, but a lot of folks don’t. So we figured we’d explain it.
Hope everyone is doing well!
Congrats to Labtest Contest Winner: Mary!
February 4, 2013
This time around the winning guess- which came under the wire this weekend- was 583… just two t-cells off of my actual count, which was 585! What’s interesting is that the champion, Scott Anderson, was way ahead of everyone in the field with a guess of 588 until Mary swept in and bested him by just one little ol’ t-cell…
So congratulations to Mary!
New videos will be posted on the blog tomorrow. Hope everyone had a great weekend.
