"We must reject the stigma that labels people with HIV as predatory, irresponsible, and lacking in self-respect. Being proud of all that we are is hardly the same as wishing it on others.Proud to be Positive explores the identity of those of us living with HIV and asks if we might feel pride about this fundamental trait." - Mark S. King

June's web gallery, Proud to be Positive, is curated by Mark S. King and features work by Veritee Reed Hall, Charles Hopkinson, Nelson Rodriguez, Shungaboy, Greg Mitchell, Kim Davis, Alex Sparrowhawk, Joe Lewis, Jonathan Leiter, Barton Lidice Beneš, Peter Wyman, George Towne,Thomas Somerville, Lina Yaroslavska, Jon Nalley, and Robert Getso.
