The Rev. Steve Pieters’s remarkable story of surviving AIDS in the 1980’s is considered an anomaly in the medical world, and a miracle in the world of religion and spirituality. With no treatments available when he was initially diagnosed, Steve devised his own plan to beat AIDS, combining prayer, meditation, exercise, nutrition, laughter, music, and just a bit of fairy dust. An AIDS activist and survivor who was first diagnosed back in the days when it was still called GRIDS, Steve has been interviewed by people as diverse as Tom Snyder and Tammy Faye Bakker, and was profiled by Jane Pauley to mark the 10th anniversary of the first diagnosis of AIDS. Steve was also invited to lunch at the White House where he was seated next to then President Bill Clinton. In addition, Steve is also a featured character (portrayed by an actor) in a play about Tammy Faye Bakker. Pieters received his B.S. in Speech from Northwestern University, his M.Div. from McCormick Theological Seminary, and his M.A. in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles. Pieters is now retired, and lives in Los Angeles where he takes great delight in singing with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. Interview w/Tammy Bakker https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjXXdQ6VceQ
