Jesus Ramirez-Valles

Oxford University Press

“I’ve been living with HIV now since 1990… One thing that is very significant in my own personal life, with my aging syndrome is that I’ve articulated my faith. I’ve always felt a connection to Jesus.” In his own words, Anthony is a man of faith and strong libido. He is 60 years old, black, and HIV positive. He grew up in a lower middle-class milieu and now lives in poverty. Anthony’s narrative underscores living with HIV, stigma, and religious faith as coping a mechanism.

Keywords:   Black men, living with HIV, older gay men, religiosity, stigma
