Yves, I am unable to put into words how proud and honored I am to know you. Your courage, in both living with HIV and in giving testimony to its real life ramifications, is beyond measure. I hope that you are able to continue disseminating your message of hope and tolerance for many years to come. Thank you. xoxo

Thank you for speaking up on a subject that most people would prefer to ignore. I have lived with this disease for 25 years, and I have been fortunate. I have not yet suffered as a direct result of my infection. I truly hope to see a cure in my lifetime.

Kudos to Yves and all the others here that have shared their stories. It is only through education that change can be made. Yves, I plan to share your video with my daughter so she can educate my grandchildren. You are touching so many people’s lives with your story. Thank you so much for doing so!

Yves has spoken so eloquently about living with HIV and its ramifications. He seems to be a tranquil guy living life to its fullest. I think his message should be brought to the United States because HIV doesn’t know boundaries . I would like to see Yves message brought to the United States and beyond.

Excellent & to the point. Most of us of a certain age recall very well that the advent of HIV brought a new era in education around sexual health but over the years, as conditions have changed, much of that dialogue has fallen by the wayside and new generations are growing up uninformed. Promoting discussion & openness is vital. Thank you.
