Everybody I Ever Knew Who Had HIV Had Died (with De’Vannon Hubert)

1 December is World Aids Day, an international day dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic. 

To mark this day on this week’s show I’m joined by De’Vannon Hubert, podcaster and author of ‘Sex, Drugs, and Jesus’, a memoir about his struggles with his HIV+ diagnosis, drug addiction, homelessness, and rejection from his church for his sexuality.

And the venue we’re discussing is F-Bar in Houston, Texas, a place that holds bittersweet memories for De’Vannon – it was here that he celebrated, danced, and made friends and chosen family. But it was also here that he received the phone call telling him that he’d contracted HIV.
