– n. slang [hiv-stur]
-A sub culture of LGBTQ men and women and their allies that look toward independent thinking and progressive politics. HIV awareness, prevention and education are of high value with an emphasis on community involvement and inclusiveness. Hivsters are often sexy, gritty, boundary pushing and current with music, culture, fashion and style.
HIVSTER.com is an online magazine that strives to give voice to anyone living with or affected by HIV. We believe that living life to the fullest is essential to everyone, especially those who are HIV+. The disease is only part of one’s life and it’s important to remember the things we love. By bringing together health, fashion, art, culture and social issues, we hope to speak to young, forward-thinking, hip/alternative men who unfortunately make up a huge portion of new diagnosis yet have little online that’s geared toward them besides health websites and pharmaceutical advertisements.
BIG,BIG Thank you to Alex for the new design of Hivster and for all of his help tech-wise, he’s become a great friend and essential part of our team!!
