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.
