#tbt 10 years ago, Jeremiah Johnson appeared on the July/August issue of POZ. He had been serving as a Peace Corps volunteer and was dismissed after testing positive for HIV. He fought back and with the help of the ACLU, the Peace Corps policy of “medically separating” people living with HIV was overturned. Fast forward to our July/August 2018 issue featuring Romany Tin on the cover, which questions the current Peace Corps policies regarding people living with HIV. Read both stories on POZ.com. #pozmagazine #hivdiscrimination #peacecorps #aclu #hivadvocacy

“There’s wisdom with age, but there’s a lot more wisdom with age and HIV,” says Nelson Vergel, the POZ Hero in our July/August issue.

Read his story in the latest issue or on POZ.com. 📷@lynnlanephotography #pozmagazine #pozhero #longtermsurvivor #agingandHIV
