About Us

History
After publicly  coming out on YouTube as being HIV+, Tanner became a role model for people young and old living with HIV and those affected by the virus . As a public figure, and a role model within the HIV community, Tanner became a focal point for individuals, no matter how long they had been affected by HIV, to reach out to and ask for support dealing with this virus both directly and indirectly. After seeing both first hand and through talking with others about the lack of education and the stigma of living with HIV, Tanner decided to found A Positive Tomorrow. Since November of 2012, A Positive Tomorrow has been educating the public and striving to end the stigma, as well as to provide a support network for anyone affected by the virus.

Mission Statement
A Positive Tomorrow’s mission is to educate the public and reduce the stigma and discrimination of HIV, while providing mentorship and support to the HIV positive community and their families.

Vision
A Positive Tomorrow foresees a world in which people infected with HIV can live their lives free of discrimination and stigma; without undue pressure and ridicule from uninfected people due to ignorance on HIV transmission, testing, and treatment.
