You can't remove stigmas if we don't talk about them, and if we don't share our own experiences.  Study after study has proven the success rate of PrEP and that people who are HIV undetectable cannot pass on the virus.  While all this sounds good on paper its good to see real world real life examples.  

In a recent Facebook post Ralphie shares that he and his partner Eric have been together for 4.5 years and through educating themselves Ralphie who is HIV negative, has remained that way while dating Eric who is HIV positive.  In his post he writes; 

He is HIV +. He takes his meds. He is undetectable. We partner in his care and educate ourselves on how to be safe, so we can have peace of mind about our life together. 4.5 years later, we are still a serodiscordant couple. 

We love to see this!  Congrats to the couple and we wish you many more years of peace, love and health!
