We sought wisdom from some of the leading voices in the HIV community on this project. Each of our advisors offers a unique perspective on the HIV journey and serves as an advocate and source of wisdom in the HIV community. With them, we selected highlights of inspiring wisdom which are featured in the Wisdom Gallery. Janssen Therapeutics is compensating the campaign advisors for their time spent as part of Your Story, Your HIV Wisdom™.
I am here to share my Journey with HIV! Look at me as one of your examples! I am a 26 year HIV survivor and through self-care and love, I urge everyone never to be defined by HIV/AIDS. It is very simple....we are just human beings that happen to have the condition of HIV! We are not victims in this journey! Your life is not over and my mission in my journey is very clear: Giving hope to the hopeless and saving lives through my story and my HIV wisdom.
Know that it gets better!! I go all over the USA and the world showing my face to educate and humanize this condition! I believe that by coming out of the HIV closet and sharing your journey we will get to zero infections one day.
Love and light/Amor y Luz
I took this picture after finally disclosing my HIV-status to my mother. I needed to know whether after learning my truth, the people I deemed most important to me still loved me. If I were to impart any HIV wisdom, it would be to be sure you love, respect and forgive yourself first before you expect anyone else to.
Your Story, Your HIV Wisdom™ is proud to recognize the below organizations which provide counseling, resources and support to people living with HIV and their families and friends.
AIDS United’s mission is to end the AIDS epidemic in the United States. AIDS United’s grant-making portfolio dates back to the founding of the National AIDS Fund in 1987 and spans programs including, but not limited to, syringe access, access to care, capacity-building, HIV prevention and advocacy. For more than two decades, AIDS United has supported community-driven responses to the HIV epidemic around the country that reach the nation’s most disproportionately affected populations, including gay and bisexual men, communities of color, women and people living in the deep South.
Founded in May of 1999, the Black AIDS Institute is the only national HIV/AIDS think tank focused exclusively on black people.

The Institute interprets public and private sector HIV policies, conducts trainings, offers technical assistance, disseminates information and provides advocacy mobilization from a uniquely and unapologetically black point of view. Our motto describes a commitment to self-preservation: “Our People, Our Problem, Our Solution.”
