A life stained by stigma, now rich in love

An HIV-positive diagnosis left Bradford McIntyre ostracized and isolated; but because of St. Paul's pioneering research and treatment, he can now lead an almost normal life

October 21, 2012 - At first blush, Bradford McIntyre and Deni Daviau appear to have an ordinary love story. The Vancouver couple met online, dated for a year, were married in church and have been happily married for 11 years. A run of the mill love story, except for one thing. McIntyre and Daviau are a mixed couple: McIntyre is HIV-positive; Daviau, HIV-negative.

"We are a serodiscordant couple, we are a lot of things, but the No. 1 thing is we are in love," an exuberant McIntyre said in their West End home.

AIDS Vancouver Director Bradford McIntyre, who has been living infected with HIV for 26 years, presents the We Care RED RIBBON Campaign Public Service Announcement, Stigma: The Silent Epidemic. Breaking the Silence

"It has been nearly thirty years since the first reported case of HIV and silence still plagues the HIV/AIDS movement. Within this shroud of silence, ignorance and fear have been able to flourish throughout the community. One of our best defenses in the fight against HIV/AIDS is education and communication. It is our hope that this new decade will allow for a more open discussion of the issues associated with HIV/AIDS by the entire community.This PSA - STIGMA: THE SILENT EPIDEMIC. BREAKING DOWN THE SILENCE, has used FREEFLOW, a local Vancouver band to help break the silence."

We learn about natural products for boosting
the immune system, especially in people with HIV.

"I think there's allot of similarities between people who have cancer and people who are HIV and in fact people who have any chronic disease. And one of the things that we actually think is that people with HIV and cancer are sort of on the leading edge of looking at integrating alternative and complementary therapies with conventional ones."
Dr. Anita Tannis

"We have all these resources, we should be combining them rather than saying the only way to treat HIV and AIDS is with pharmaceuticals."

But Brad had no plans of dying and instead decided to investigate other options that could not only save his life but keep him healthy."

"Predominantly, we treat people with HIV in terms of the side effects they experience from the medications they are taking."
Dr. Aaron Hoo, Naturopathic Physician

Brisons le silence
Documentary on the Comité LIPO-ACTION ! (VIDÉO: Lipo-Action! in French)
(Temps : 7 minutes')

Breaking the silence with LIPO-ACTION!

LIPO-ACTION was founded on October 16, 2003 in Montreal at a public meeting called to find solutions to the impact of lipodystrophy and lipoatrophy on people living with HIV on Antiretrovirals.

LIPO-ACTION is a direct action group whose goals are to inform, sensitize and mobilize various sectors of society that are concerned by the devastating impact of lipodystrophy and lipoatrophy on women, men and children living with HIV. They chose to be jointly committed in a creative citizen action in order to obtain a true therapeutic assumption of responsibility of this alarming syndrome. Helped by their close relations, they decided together to break silence and to organize theatrical public interventions; using masks, costumes and signs.


  • To contribute actively to informing and sensitizing people living with HIV, community workers, healthcare professionals, researchers and the pharmaceutical companies about the disastrous impact of this syndrome for people living with HIV (witnessing, statistics, etc.)
  • To fight for antiretroviral treatments that are effective but less toxic and to demand more research and more pertinent information about the causes and the means to prevent and remedy lipodystrophy.
  • To promote the dissemination of honest and up-to-date information so that patients are equipped to make well-informed treatment choices with the help of their doctors.
  • To demand universal access to reparatory treatments for the effects of lipodystrophy and lipoatrophy covered by the public health system.
  • To obtain better psychosocial support from community groups and the health and social service network in order to live better with the consequences of lipodystrophy.
  • To encourage the participation of people living with HIV to partake in political action in order to break out of their isolation and to confront the issues related to lipodystrophy and lipoatrophy, in solidarity with their fellow citizens.

  • Le Comité LIPO-ACTION ! officially shut down as a commitee in 2007.
