  2. let me emphasize that membership or being active in any of the above groups DOES NOT REQUIRE disclosure, you can be sero-negative or ser-positive (PLHIV) and be active in the advocacy...

    only EXCEPTION is PINOYPLUS wherein all membership is only for PLHIV...

    kung may namiss ako, readers please dont hesitate to add in sa comments.



  3. Wow thank you for your kind words Bong, you're one of the many reasons why we are doing these things. Involving with advocacy groups, especially about HIV/AIDS is definitely tough - we have to break the stigma and the common misconceptions.

    On behalf of The Love Yourself, we're truly thankful for you ;)
