One of a KIND Stories
Speaker: Bradford McIntyre (Positively Positive)
Monday July 12, 2010
A long time survivor living with HIV since 1984, Bradford McIntyre (Positively Positive) announced
publicly, on national television, in 1994 that he was living with HIV. Bradford has transformed the challenges he faced through living with
HIV into opportunities to educate, inform and build community.
Bradford has put into practice in his daily living, his message about living positively, and the influence our thoughts have on our lives.
You don't survive 26 years with HIV with a smile on your face without a healthy mental attitude. While waging his personal war with the disease, he strives to reach out and make a difference.
Through all avenues, (TV and radio, newspapers and magazines, documentaries, conferences, seminars, and national and international speaking engagements) he promotes responsibility for health and wellness.
He advocates daily to raise the profile of HIV and AIDS awareness and serves as an educator through his own experiences and by association with professionals in the health care field.
Bradford's global impact is shown through a comprehensive, informative website. When you visit his
website Positively Positive - Living with HIV/AIDS (www.PositivelyPositive.ca), you
will discover a wide variety of life affirming and supportive topics.

About "One of a KIND Stories"
Previously titled "Clam Chowder for the Soul", One of a KIND Stories is an inspiring evening of courageous
stories, uplifting music and songs from the heart.
"I started One of a KIND Stories and Music because I believe community is created by sharing our stories from our heart... as a youngster I was discouraged from sharing my feelings and as a result i became very depressed and suicidal... I believe we, as individuals and as a society, are 'suffering in silence', and as they say in AA, "We are only as sick as our secrets." We have become obsessed with filling that hole in us with many different things and addictions, and I believe our healing begins and our joy returns by taking an honest journey from our head back to our heart. I'm very excited about One of a KIND Stories... I believe everybody's story is 'our' story because we are all ONE!"
"Every human being is 'one of a kind'...to 'be' human is to live 'as one' and be kind."
