Tell the whole world you just got pricked and win an intangible prize!

    Does the badge expire after three months for those who test HIV- but continue to have sex?

    Getting tested isn’t about being negative or positive. It’s about knowing your status and taking care of yourself and taking charge of your life. The more people share that they’re getting tested, the more open and honest a conversation people can have regarding HIV/AIDS. Maybe I’m codependent, but knowing and seeing that my friends are making this a priority for themselves, the happier and prouder I am of them.
