You go Michael Rizzi!

This entry is late, on November 24, 2015, Michael Rizzi dropped a vlog on Living with the stigma of HIV. When i got the notification, and yes I am subscribed, it was amazing to see that. Why was that a big deal to me, its just a video? Seeing that video said a lot, it gave public recognition for WorldAidsDay, about a year ago I say YouTubers talking about HIV and Aids and bringing attention to it. I felt in that moment that Rizzi did that so overdue justice. It stands at 16,860 views 993 likes and 4 dislikes. What i hope for anyone who knows someone or currently lives with HIV to know that there are people out that that get it and want to make a positive change for the better.

Having that video there also told me that someone remembered and that were getting more comfortable about talking about this important subject. It was also a great feeling to see the volunteers that participated in helping this video become a reality. Michael asked all the right answers to this subject. I couldn’t be moved more to know that there are still people out there that care and show how we need to stick together and be a community, spread love not stigma. When you have time check out the video on Michael Rizzi’s channel, Terrence Higgins Trust, and many other outlets that are out there to show support and information.
