Celebrating Another Birthday
Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Saturday and it is also my birthday. I hope you are having a beary safe and great start to your weekend. Dab the AIDS Bear and I are celebrating my birthday this weekend.
The following is a slide show featuring pics of me and the bears over the past 35 years since we start celebrating my birthday this weekend:
At 18, HIV entered my life with the passing of my best friend and then my first partner.
My entire adult life I have tried to live by example in being out about my sexual orientation, HIV status, cancer and bullying survivor to help inspire others. While I know everyone does not have the freedom I do to be "out" about things in their life, I hope that we let you know that it does get better.
I'm going to keep this blog short today and I won't be online much this weekend so the bears and I can celebrate my special day. But know how appreciate we are for the love we receive from around the world from all of you.
Wishing all of you a beary great weekend.
Until we meet again; here's wishing you health, hope, happiness and just enough.
big bear hug,
