When it happened. How he got it. And why’s he’s telling his story now.

This is no melodramatic mea culpa. No crocodile tears or pleases for pity. What this is is a brutally frank and self-effacing account of Kayden Gray’s journey from his initial diagnosis to becoming undetectable to the power and importance of honesty in living with HIV no matter what your profession.

“I have noticed how many people are putting days upon weeks upon years of effort to benefit the sexual well-being of our community. Having seen that, I can’t sit on this secret. I need to do this for myself as much as anyone else out there who may need to hear this.”

“All of you who are negative, and are listening to this thinking it doesn’t affect you … because you are not stupid, you are not a whore … you can take care of yourself. Well, guess what? I used to say the exact same things. And like you, I also used the word ‘clean.’ The thing is … it takes one mistake. One night out. One bareback fuck to join the club.”

Many live with HIV in silence. That has allowed the stigma to continue and flourish in fear and ignorance. Kayden’s honesty is both refreshing and importance. Brains become enlightened one mind at a time.

Kayden Gray, thank you for the courage in sharing your story.

May you live to tell it for many years in abundant health.
