me april bdayWelcome to Alex Sparrowhawk: HIV & Me, for the past five years I have been living with HIV and the last two years of that openly and with no shame. I use my blog to talk about my own personal journey, my opinions and thoughts and to fight for what is right and fair for all People Living with HIV.

Unashamedly an activist, advocate and voice for all things HIV and LGBT awareness and rights related. As my body continues to battle the virus I continue to fight the fear and ignorance that leads to the stigma associated with HIV and AIDS.

Thank you for reading
Alex x

    Hi Alex, I re-Tweet @THTorguk & @EJAF Tweets to my 324,000 + Twitter followers & noticed yours with THT tonight.

    I did this feature on Justin Washington the other day & am now organising him a modelling shoot in the USA. He’s going to be sharing his video blogs with me & my followers.

    If you would like to donate a feature about you & your activism & honesty I will also promote it to my followers.

    This is a big issue that affects creatives & some say we were targeted for our high physic abilities that circumnavigate the fluoride & the water etc etc etc.

      Hi, I’d be happy to, let me know what sort of thing you would like?

        HI Alex, maybe something that you have already written. It’s just the message that we want to get across, firstly safe sex, then should they become HIV + it is not the end of the world. So all the plus aspects of being in a gay or straight world living with HIV.

        Somehow i’ve managed to miss becoming HIV, though it could happen to me next week. But I just want people to know the good & bad sides to being young and living with HIV. I have many friends that are HIV + but coming from a younger persons perspective is very important. Justins story hopefully jolted a few people with his honesty & bravery.

        Dear Alex

        RE – http://www.minimalhome.com/article/show/525#.U81Zb1YorRp

        I hope that you are well today.

        We exchanged a brief message on your blog the other day & would like to run your piece that the Metro published in our ŒOur World¹ section on minimalhome.com. Although we are an online store, we are also a blog magazine tackling difficult social issues through our social media channels. On Twitter we have a total of 337,500 direct Twitter followers of the five Twitter profiles that promote minimalhome.com.

        We did a two page feature on Justin Washington the other day which you can see on the link above, plus we auto re-Tweet all THT & EJAF tweets to our followers, plus promote the great works of THT on our site too.

        It¹s really great that you are vocal on this issue, as this is so important for the younger generation to take on board the risks from HIV still.

        All the very best

    Hi Alex ,I not sure if I’m an activist, but diagnosed in 1984, Actor, worked alot in television theatre etc, my status came out in public in 1999, how we need to concur stigma, lots of changes happening, not all for the best. A blog on HIV maybe there’s movement in this.
    Salford being the new television centre of BBC itv etc, ask them their views on HIV employment issues,
