-2013-July 31- Interview | Radio - CKNW News Talk AM980 - The Simi Sara Show with guest host Jill Krop - LIVING A POSITIVELY POSITIVE LIFE WITH AN HIV DIAGNOSIS: In studio, Jill Krop interviews Bradford McIntyre Advocate for creating HIV/AIDS awareness.
Last night, AIDS Vancouver celebrated its 30th anniversary and on hand to celebrate the occasion was Bradford McIntyre. Bradford was diagnosed with HIV in 1984, but due to the stigma associated with HIV at the time, he did not come out. It took Bradford ten years to come out, which he did on national TV on Worlds Aids Day in 1994. How has the stigma around HIV and AIDS changed since he was first diagnosed? How has the HIV/AIDS treatment available in British Columbia changed?
Interview starts at approximately 24:18, following the conversation on mobile-phone providers.

-2013-July 31- Interview - Georgia Straight - HIV survivor Bradford McIntyre keeps up fight - Georgia Straight reporter Gail Johnson, talks with Bradford McIntyre about his having lived infected with HIV since 1984, the work he does creating HIV and AIDS awareness and the Vancouver Pride Celebrations. "Creating HIV awareness has become my life's work," McIntyre says in a phone interview. "I don't want anybody to go through what I've been through. After I was diagnosed, I lived a life of fear-fear of death."
"The thing people hear is that HIV is a problem among high-risk groups," says McIntyre, 61. "But HIV doesn't discriminate. HIV can infect anyone. Here in Canada, our youth are infected. Women are infected. Aboriginal communities are infected. Members of the LGBT [community] are infected. Seniors are being infected-maybe they're newly single, recently separated, or they've lost their spouse and they've never had to have a conversation around safe sex and using a condom. They don't think there's any risk.
High risk is unprotected sex, that's what high risk is."
"Pride represents how far we've come," he adds. "Our community was devastated by HIV, but we can be proud that we cared for those who were sick and fought to get treatment. Now people who are HIV-positive can live long and healthy lives, and we can be proud of that, too.
We've come a long way, but we still have so far to go." Bradford McIntyre

-2013-February 1- Photograph | Participant in the RISE UP TO HIV: NO SHAME ABOUT BEING HIV POSITIVE CAMPAIGN - Bradford McIntyre has No Shame About Being HIV Positive! - "A long time survivor living with HIV since 1984, I announced publicly on national TV (Canada), on World AIDS Day, December 1, 1994, that I was living with HIV. For me, there is more power in people knowing the truth than there ever was in the fear and hiding. I did not experience any negative repercussions following my coming out publicly about being infected with HIV. This freed me from the burden of hiding that I'm HIV positive, giving me the freedom to truly be myself. My coming out publicly evolved and grew, which has been an extremely rewarding and liberating experience". Bradford McIntyre
"The "Rise Up to HIV" campaign was inspired by an image of Chelsea Clinton holding a sign for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. My vision for this campaign is to mobilize people across the United States and the world who are willing to stand up in an effort to reduce HIV stigma. Participants are empowered by the act of pairing a simple statement with their personal story and photo. In turn, these stories inspire hope and empower others to fight stigma. This campaign identifies and mobilizes individuals who are making a difference in their communities. When you are engaged in your own care, you'll engage others, which will in turn create healthier communities". Kevin Maloney

-2011-November 11- Speaker: AIDS Vancouver presents touching documentary "We Were Here" to promote "Positive Change" AIDS Vancouver Board Vice-Chair, Bradford McIntyre opened the commercial premiere of the documentary "We Were Here - The AIDS Years of San Francisco" sponsored by AIDS Vancouver at VanCity Theatre. Bradford McIntyre, a long term survivor living with HIV since 1984, introduced the feature length documentary "We Were Here" and shared his own experience living with HIV. After the screening, Bradford moderated a 20 min Q & A session with director David Weissman, via Skype.
"In We Were Here, director David Weissman vividly captures the reality many of us faced in the early years of the HIV epidemic. Back then there was no support out there for people living with HIV and stigma was so vehement. People living with HIV/AIDS had to create grassroots networks to take care of one another; fight for treatments and human rights and educate the public to break down the barriers of stigma. Thirty years on we have come a long way in addressing these issues those generations before fought for. However, with over 33 million HIV infections worldwide, we must continue to act and support people living with HIV, by never faltering to advocate for HIV/AIDS awareness." reflected Bradford McIntyre.

Quotes by Bradford McIntyre included in: A PLAN OF ACTION for Canada to reduce HIV/AIDS related stigma and discrimination
by Theodore de Bruy
for The Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network

   "There ARE individuals who are OUT about their HIV status who are NOT afraid to speak up. What is necessary is media coverage not of new medications and side effects, or individuals sick and dying, but interviews with HIV+ individuals who are living!"
   "Who better to reach people than those who are living with HIV who are not afraid to talk about the fact that they are living with HIV. People need to see others living with HIV who are out about their status, in order to move away from the fear."
   "Many people world wide are out about their HIV status and many many more are voicing they would also like to be able to live without fear and let others know they are living with HIV. Unfortunately, the fear of discrimination still exists today, and this prevents many from feeling safe about revealing their status."
