Written as he lived it, Life Positive: A Journey to the Center of my Heart by Nicholas Snow (available at Amazon.com from December 1st, 2013—World AIDS Day) is the riveting true story about how one man became HIV positive decades into the AIDS epidemic because of a rare slip in his safer sex behavior, and then decided to use this mistake as an opportunity to empower millions of people throughout the world.
Snow went public with his HIV status at a press conference in Bangkok, Thailand, in 2008 and went on to conceive “The Power To Be Strong” HIV Testing/Safer Sex Awareness Song & Music Video Campaign (available on iTunes). Snow, a journalist and film/television actor, has since become one of the world’s leading freelance proponents of voluntary HIV testing, having reached at least 5,000,000 people in multiple countries. The key message of Snow’s song is “Get tested and live longer and be strong!” Science has shown someone who knows their HIV status and is taking the latest antiretroviral medication can live a long and healthy life and 96% less likely to transmit the virus to others.
Snow is also the producer and host of the popular BlogTalkRadio program, SnowbizNow, which has reached over 1.3 million listeners since going on the air in late July 2012. Please follow Nicholas on Twitter @SnowbizNow.
