Your Ex-Boyfriend is HIV Positive. How Do You Feel?

Oof.

This was a tough one for both structural and emotional reasons. A week ago, an ex of mine from many years ago posted on Facebook that he is HIV positive. His post included a long letter to his peers about knowing your status and living without shame. I reached out to him and he agreed to let me write about this for Role/Reboot. To read his whole note, head to YouTube, where he posted a video of himself taking his first dose of the antiretrovirals.

  1. I would wonder about this if it were me and probably pray for him but the same time glad I don’t have it. the thought scares me.
