Quotable Quotes
“I have no idea how long I’ve been HIV-positive but I have had AIDS for the past two years.” Adam Levin quote on the cover of Aidsafari
Adam Levin is a South African author, journalist and fashion guru. He's also white, gay, and has HIV/AIDS. His third book, Aidsafari, is an autobiography in which he discusses, very frankly, his status and the trials of living with AIDS. According to an article on aegis.com, “South Africa: Contrasting HIV-positive lives”, Levin’s book discusses how “he experienced life-threatening opportunistic infections and debilitating side-effects from the medication . . . was bedridden for months, tortured by nerve pains in his feet, lost his hair and teeth, required dentures at 35, had tuberculosis, cancer, chemotherapy, a catheter in his urethra, and even more unpleasant conditions that make some chapters difficult to read.” He is the winner of two Mondi Gold Awards for Journalism.
