A look back at some of the defining moments in the magazine’s illustrious (and sometimes notorious) history.

Viral Vernacular
by Laura Whitehorn and Kellee Terrell
Since the days when we didn’t have a vocabulary for discussing AIDS, POZ has advocated for a gentle turn of phrase for the virus and those living with it.

POZ & Effect
by Oriol Gutierrez
Our deputy editor checks in with several people who were featured in POZ. They share how their public disclosure on the pages of the magazine changed their lives—and their health—for the better.

Your Brighter Future Starts Here
With a new president, renewed civic engagement and talk of meaningful health care reform, we’re ready to once again dream big. We can’t afford not to. Our ability to survive and thrive with HIV/AIDS—and one day bring an end to the crisis—demands renewed political organization from people living with and affected by the virus. That is why POZ and the National Association of People with AIDS have launched The Denver Principles Project. Its goal? A brighter future for all people living with HIV.
