An incredible story of surviving the AIDS/HIV epidemic:
More than 30 years ago, when he learned he was infected with the virus that causes AIDS, Peter was certain his life was over. Since then, he’d lost not just his lover and his friends, but his livelihood, his community, his home.
But on this Christmas Eve, on the cusp of another new year, Peter was still here: 61, his beard flecked with gray, his eyes still a striking, youthful blue. A survivor of a plague that killed tens of thousands just like him.
“I’m the luckiest unlucky person in the world,” he often said. “No one wants to be the last man standing.”
