POZ magazine, a print and online brand for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS, has announced the fifth annual POZ 100, also marking its 200th issue and 20th year in publication. This year, POZ asked individuals and organizations to nominate people under the age of 30 in their communities who are making a difference in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
Jacques Agbobly, a 16-year-old Chicago AIDS activist; Juan Calderon of Vida/SIDA; and Cassie Warren of the Broadway Youth Center at the Howard Brown Health Center have been named among the POZ 100.
This year's list honors a diverse group of 100 individuals from across the United States and around the world. The list includes both people living with the virus, such as youth activist Paige Rawl, as well as HIV-negative people, such as Miss America 2010 Caressa Cameron-Jackson and Ryan Lewis, half of the Grammy Award-winning hip-hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
