About the Book
As an HIV Counsselor, Tester, and Health Educator, I have had conversations that were amazing, enlightening, unsettling, and unexpected. There is still fear, strong dislike, ignorance, and misinformation about HIV disease, as well as the kinds of people that will supposedly contract the virus.

Many of those conversations pertaining to HIV disease intersect with race, gender, sexuality, income, and religion. It is my hope that this book will encourage dialogue and stimulate new discussion among those intersections, as well as rethink how our sexual, and other behaviors, impact ourselves, and the well-being of others.
