In this episode of Sex, Love, and Addiction LGBTQ, Dr. David Fawcett welcomes Tez Anderson, a long-term HIV survivor, as well as a writer, speaker, activist, and the founder of the Let’s Kick ASS (Aids Survivor Syndrome), a grassroots movement empowering HIV survivors. Tez joins the show to discuss how he went from coming to terms with his own diagnosis and his standing as a long-term survivor to becoming an advocate and running groups to help connect and empower others. He talks about how Let’s Kick ASS came to be, where we have made strides in helping long-term survivors, and the issues we still face today. Dr. Fawcett and Tez talk about the symptoms that long-term survivors often face, and how to cope with grief, anger, fear, and planning for the often unexpected future.
