Early February 2020 I was allowed a glimpse of a political fundraiser in a sex club in Manhattan, NYC.
This was a month before the Covid-19 Pandemic shut down the United States. Events like this have since been impossible to do.
In a way it offers an eerie view of a different world just a few months ago. Of life before Corona.
Eine Woche nach meiner Diagnose kam die erste Konfrontation. Der Augenblick in dem man einem HIV Positiven Menschen das erste Mal bewusst gegenübersteht ist überwältigend. Vor allem wenn er so unvorbereitet kommt...
Weihnachtsgeschenk aus Monheim!
Nach meiner kleinen Tournee durch Deutschland und der Schweiz, wurde mir von den lieben Leuten in Monheim ein kleines Video geschickt!
Nochmals vielen Dank für die Möglichkeit dort auszustellen!
For World Aids Day 2019 I took my exhibition "Going Viral" to beautiful Monheim am Rhein, Germany. Sharing my thoughts and pictures from this show, I am continuously amazed at how much can happen in such little time. Enjoy the little gallery!
Ok Ok. I know I've neglected the 21st century, but I've finally accepted to move on. Here's all the links to all the social media sites I use!
Feel free to follow and comment and enjoy!
In den nächsten Wochen werde ich recht viel in Deutschland und der Schweiz unterwegs sein; zum plaudern, reden, Bilder zeigen und sonstigen, spassigen Blödsinn. Wer mitmachen will, hier mal die ersten Daten!
I had the great opportunity of speaking to the Terrence Higgins Trust and give a little bit of insight into my story and what its like being HIV Positive as a heterosexual male. About stigmas, toxic masculinity and of course, sex...
It's my "annHIVersary". It has been 5 years that I was diagnosed with HIV. 5 long, dark, fun, exciting and challenging years that had given me insight into things I had never thought possible. Today I reflect - and notice how far I have come.
I still can't believe that all of this happened. That I passed through this journey. This adventure. Damn. Maybe I should start considering a book..?
An interesting article about HIV in eastern Europe I would like to share.
One of my favourite articles about the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 80ies and 90ies, and how art and activism changed the fates of so many people - and what human price there is to pay.
Without them, I would not be.
