A long but productive day spreading the word of #UEqualsU and combating #HIVStigma here in #melbourne. Let’s #stophivstigma together! #thorneharbour
Thanks for having me on #abcradio this morning to talk about #UEqualsU In #Australia & all the great work #thorneharbour is doing. #hivstillmatters #stophivstigma
Nothing like a late afternoon jump in the waves on an #Aussie beach! Perfect end to a relaxing day #istillcallaustraliahome #downunder #australia
Playing tourist in my homeland with these two. I’d forgotten how magical and beautiful #Australia is. #istillcallaustraliahome #family #greatoceanroad #twelveapostles #uequalsu #visibilitymatters
Me: so we’re going to playing bingo? 91 Year Old Grandmother: I want to go play the pokies (slot machines). Me: so you want to go down to the pub and play the machines and have a beer? 91 Year Old Grandmother: Yeah! Me: Done! Let’s go! #favoritegrandchild #family #pokies #istillcallaustraliahome #visibilitymatters
Always asking the hard questions... apparently! #TBT to last week when I had the honor of moderating a panel with the amazing Kim Snyder, Donna Hubbard McCree, Javier Munoz, Ron Nyswaner and with #cocacola in conjunction with #red . Check out “The Last Mile,” and contribute to @RED’s fight to #EndAIDS at red.org/cocacola.
Next stop... #home #istillcallaustraliahome #virginaustralia

The t-shirt that helped me find my courage and voice to speak openly and publicly about my HIV status. I had NO idea back in March when I posted about my positive status that 9 months later I’d still be talking about it. THANK YOU to the thousands of private messages from all of the people around the world who have reached out. For as long as you’ll all put up with me (and even if you don't) I’ll keep talking about living as a healthy happy HIV+ person. If my story and me living my truth shows you can live openly, proudly and honestly about your HIV status then Im happy. Let’s #stophivstigma together! Undetectable Equals Untransmittable. #worldaidsday2018 #uequalsu
World AIDS Day gives me hope. It’s a day when we all stop for a moment and look at how far we’ve come since the early 1980s when the pandemic spread like wildfire robbing so many people around the world of their lives too soon. It’s a day when we can look forward and celebrate the achievements in science and medicine and know that being HIV positive is no longer a death sentence and that the progression to “AIDS” is unlikely if you are on anti-retroviral medication and maintain the disciplined routine in taking your meds and seeing and communicating with your doctor. Thanks to research, time, energy and the dedication of doctors and scientists around the world, living undetectable really does mean you are untransmittable. But sadly, this isn’t the case for everyone. There are many people around the world who don’t have access to the vital medications that really can stop the spread of the HIV/AIDS. World AIDS Day also gives us a moment to pause and contemplate “what can I do to help”? It’s also a day when we can reflect and take time to celebrate and think of those we have lost and to remember them as the bright, shining, beautiful people they were. #whatisrememberedlives #uequalsu #sciencenotstigma
Congratulations #LosAngeles for making December 4 U=U Awareness Day! Undetectable Equals Untransmittable! If you are HIV+, healthy, on medication and undetectable there is ZERO risk that you can transmit the virus to a partner. Zero! Zip! Zilch! Let’s #stophivstigma together! #sciencenotstigma #uequalsu
Words to live by! #wisewords #dontdreamitbeit #uequalsu #sciencenotstigma
#FBF THANK YOU again #OUT100 for including me! “HIV stigma remains a public health crisis resulting, in extreme cases, in murder and suicide. It should be a public health duty to inform all of us living with the virus, and all those we encounter, that effective treatment prevents transmission.” - Matthew Hodson. Couldn’t have said it better myself! Let’s #StopHIVStigma together!
We’re about to do this one last time. Join me on the #DWTS FB page (Link in bio) at 9:30amPT as #OTRC recaps the #DWTSFinale for Season 27.
Instead of asking someone if they’re “clean” why not ask them if they know their HIV status? Little changes like that go A LONG way in fighting the stigma that all HIV+ people face. Let’s #stophivstigma together. #uequalsu #visibilitymatters #iamclean #squeaky #knowyourstatus #sciencenotstigma
THANK YOU #out100 for a fun night and for including me on this year’s list! What an honor! And THANK YOU @bair_it it for being the best mate and supporter through all of this! #uequalsu #visibiltymatters #stophivstigma
