Donald Scherschligt is a 24-year-old gay HIV+ activist, writer and graphic designer. In this episode we talk about his Christianity, HIV/AIDS, stigma, and what we can each do to help fight this disease.
After coming out at age 19, Donald led an underground LGBTQ community at the Christian college he attended. He is the creator of Campus Pride’s Shame List, the nation’s most comprehensive list of anti-LGBTQ religious colleges and universities. He’s also one half of the team behind Queerly Beloved Tees, an apparel company for LGBTQ people of faith.
