Holding Space for HIV with Donja Love

Playwright, Donja Love talks about creating and holding healing spaces for the marginalized, normalizing HIV and what it is like to heal through your work on full display.

At the time Donja wrote his play One in Two in 2016 the CDC released a statistic that one in two black gay or bisexual men would be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetime. Compared to the one in 11 white gay or bisexual men being diagnosed with HIV.

In this episode we talk about the importance of being vulnerable, having conversations about our health and finding a radical sense of joy in our existence while redefining the rigid definitions of both masculinity and the norm.
