Mexico - Health - AIDS Activist Martin Zuniga

Martin Zuniga, 39, is a gay man and a former dancer who now works in event production for a major Mexico City museum. "My daily life has not changed and I'm still working," he says. "The only difference is that I have to take my meds." Zuniga was part of a unique project in Mexico City in which fourteen HIV positive individuals photographed their own lives, and at the same time had their portrait taken by photographer Gideon Mendel. The resulting show, entitled "Historias Positivas" ("Positive Stories"), is being displayed at the 17th International AIDS Conference, the first to take place in Latin America. The exhibition is part of a global arts initiative called MAKE ART/STOP AIDS, a collaboration between the Mexican HIV/AIDS community organization Letra S and the Art|Global Health Center at UCLA.
