Stay negative, 1995

The person pictured in this AAC ad tries to model alternatives to the excuses men use not to wear condoms when having sex with one another. He announces his HIV-positive status in hopes of helping other men stay HIV-negative. By the mid-1990s, AIDS service providers recognized the need to combine care and treatment for HIV-positive people while also promoting safer sex as a way to prevent the spread of HIV.
