Mark S. King curated this month's web gallery, Choosing Joy, featuring Steven Dwyane Bryk, Kyle Nylund, Martin Freeman, Carlos Gutierrez-Solana, Keith Haring, John Hanning, Steve Muench, Rob Ordonez and horea.

King says, " Joy is glorious. Joy is proud. And, for people living with HIV, joy is a crucial part of our resilience. Depictions of people living with HIV are often weighted in tragedy and challenge. But something lies beyond those overly simplistic portraits: our love of life, the bravery and empowerment that comes with facing a chronic condition with dignity, and our daily commitment to health and well-being."

Each month, Visual AIDS invites guest curators, drawn from both the arts and AIDS communities, to select several works from the Frank Moore Archive Project and Visual AIDS Artists Registry.
