KC: My purpose is to spread awareness and not HIV! The more people I can reach, the better. Hopefully, through time, patience and daily dedication, I will change the stigma with HIV. That way others in the future will not have to live in shame or guilt because of their HIV diagnosis.
Sugar Pie: As of now, you’re just providing a forum for HIV infected individuals, do you plan on taking your project to a higher level?
KC: I definitely would like to! I know that the challenge to change the stigma with HIV is a great challenge to accomplish, But I’m dedicated and prepared mentally for the challenge! Once I feel that the stigma is changing or changed, I definitely want to take the awareness higher. I’m not sure exactly what that entails, but I know I have dreams and visions of having great people of power speak about my cause. As cheesy as it may sound, I’ve had thoughts about Oprah speaking about HIV and my cause to change the stigma.
Sugar Pie: How long have you been infected?
KC: I found out in August of 2003. According to my 'numbers' at that time, the doctor said I was probably infected a couple years prior (2001). Based on that, I have an idea of who infected me due to unprotected sex.
