When people view your video diary or your microfilm, what specifically do you hope to EXPOSE them to about your life and HIV?

Jasán's Answer

When people view my video diary or microfilm, I want them to be exposed to a human being trying to live and thrive while living with HIV. I want them to see a Black Gay man, who by all statistics, should not be alive, yet who continues to overcome struggle. I want people to be exposed to my truth, my imperfections, and my authenticity. I want people to come away with knowing that through exposure, I have the ability to heal myself while helping others at the same time. Most importantly, I want people to be exposed to the fact that hope can motivate a person to achieve the impossible. In the words of the great choreographer and dancer, Alvin Ailey – “To be who you are and to become what you are capable of is the only goal worth living” – I want people to understand that HIV will never get in the way of me becoming the best possible version of myself in order to reach the fullness of my potential.
