HIV/AIDS

My name is Jason Dooley. I live as a musician in Seattle, WA. I am a survivor of sexual abuse. I am a recovering addict. I am HIV-positive.

23 years ago, my mother and father were living together in Seattle and about to have a baby girl. My future wasn’t the brightest; unfortunately things turned downhill quickly when they both started relying on alcohol and drugs. My mother became infected with HIV while she was pregnant with me. She got connected with a well-known children’s HIV specialist at Children’s Hospital who then probably prescribed her AZT (zidovudine), the first antiretroviral drug available to treat HIV. It was pretty unsuccessful because it made people even sicker, but there was nothing else.

I never really considered myself to be sexually ‘high risk’. Throughout undergrad I was engaged in the LGBTQ nonprofit world pretty consistently. I was a gender studies major, LGBTQ studies minor, and had a role in our peer health education program. I was keenly aware of many of the health challenges facing LGBTQ folks, engaged in dialogue with peers around sexual health, and was consistent in maintaining safer sex practices in my personal sex life.
