When I started my HIV journey, I had no idea what I was going to say, what I was going to do, or how I could create change. I was just so tired of waiting for the perfect opportunity to come my way that one day I said “it’s now or never” then took a leap of faith hoping that I wouldn’t regret it in the future.
It feels like just yesterday when I stood in front of a room full of loved ones to explain my grand vision for the nonprofit I founded called “Not Equal To.” The nonprofit had a mission to unite the HIV community that, in my opinion, has divided itself into categories for way too long.
For those who do not know me my name is Alexander Deets, and I am the HIV guy. I am so excited to have an opportunity to share my life experience in a way that can help people living with HIV, recently diagnosed or long term survivors, be the absolute best version of themselves.
