Today, I went over to the National AIDS Memorial Grove to visit a friend’s art installation during Playa at the Grove. He installed a labyrinth for people to share their stories and experiences revolving around HIV/AIDS. More information is on his site at positivepathlabyrinth.org.
One of the things that dawned on me while waking the labyrinth is that I have pretty much lived in a world where HIV and the effects of HIV/AIDS are present.
Recently, NPR had a story talking about PrEP (link). Over lunch the other day, I had a coworker mention about PrEP asking me about it and admited that he didn’t realize HIV was still a major concern. Even he mentioned that it faded away for him due to the advancements in treatment. It is important that everyone continue to share how HIV/AIDS effects us today so it doesn’t fade away.
