THRIVE's vision is to "end the death, stigma and shame related to being a Black gay man living with HIV." These Self-Love and HIV Acceptance tees are funny and provocative. They are 100% created by Black gay men living with HIV to serve as conversation starters about how we best affirm every person living with HIV. THRIVE hopes to challenge and change the many narratives that depict people living with HIV as victims, powerless and incapable of saving and supporting ourselves, ALL of the proceeds from the sale of these shirts will go to providing support to people living HIV in need.
