Black Men Living With HIV In America is a series that looks beyond the numbers and puts a face and a story to the numbers that we always hear about. What is it like to be HIV positive and a Black Man? Why are more ana more Black men becoming HIV positive? And is the prevention and outreach message the right or wrong message as we see an increase in younger Black males? Is the message reaching the target or not reaching the target and if not then what are we doing to change and target those Black men at a greater rick of infection? These are the question that we must ask so that we can move forward and maybe then reach the goal of zero new infections among the Black community.

My guest today is Justin B Terry-Smith, a noted African-American HIV and gay civil rights activist, advocate and the creator of ‘Jus­tin’s HIV Journal,” a popular Youtube video blog in which he shares his trials and tribulations of living with HIV. He is also a U.S. Air Force veteran and married to Dr. Philip Terry-Smith and they are the proud parents of Lundyn.
