ThrowbackThursday: HIV PSA "Guess who?"

As I was going over some statistics this morning on HIV/AIDS one just stood out in my mind.

An estimated 50,000 new HIV infections occur in the U.S. each year. This got me thinking, what is it about HIV/AIDS that we don't take this disease seriously anymore?

Something I always hear when I present to youth groups (especially from the young men) is I don't "look" sick, I am too cute or too fine to have AIDS. While I love the compliment of being considered attractive, this is a crazy logic we must ease from our minds.
We believe there is a certain look to HIV/AIDS, like a person will have a flashing neon light above there head flashing.
The scary thing about HIV this day and age is a person can go up to ten years without showing any major symptoms, that means a lot of people are living with HIV right now and have no idea.
Actually its 1 in 7 with HIV are unaware of their HIV status.
This made of think of the second PSA I created with two dear friends of mind in-titled "Guess Who?" this PSA got a lot of traction on the internet and on blogs. While I'm always in shock of the statistics I thought it would be befitting to post this PSA again today.
I hope you will share it on your social media sites and please bring up the subject of HIV/AIDS to the young people in your life, they need to be aware and informed!

The link for direct post to social media is

This is how we address HIV/AIDS together.
