Monda Guerra at AIDS Walk New York May 15th

Mondo Guerra  
from “Project Runway”
will be at AIDS Walk New York
on Sunday, May 15
on behalf of his HIV education campaign, Living Positive By Design.

Mondo (from last season Project Runway)  is leading the national HIV education campaign Living Positive By Design alongside fellow show alum Jack Mackenroth. 

The two will come together for the first time on Sunday, May 15 at the 26th Annual AIDS Walk New York in Central Park, where Mondo will address the anticipated 45,000 attendees and discuss his personal journey with HIV. 

Mondo has been HIV-positive for ten years, and since his courageous disclosure of his HIV-positive status on “Project Runway,” has become an advocate for HIV/AIDS awareness.  Living Positive By Design is a partnership with Merck, and encourages people living with the disease to maintain a positive outlook on life while working with their doctors to manage their disease. 

Through the campaign, Mondo hopes to combat the stigma associated with the disease and share his experience with HIV.  He’s also encouraging people living with HIV to work with their doctor to find a treatment regimen that is right for them.

Opening ceremonies for AIDS Walk New York  start at 9:15am, with the Walk beginning at 10am.
