About Nicholas Snow
Nicholas Snow is a journalist, author, actor, radio and television host, singer/songwriter, LGBT rights activist, and a world-renowned, openly-gay, openly-HIV positive advocate for HIV testing and safer sex. When he learned he had become HIV positive through a rare slip in his safer sex behavior, he held a press conference and has ultimately reached millions of people with his experience, strength, and hope. He created "The Power To Be Strong" HIV Testing/Safer Sex Awareness Song and Music Video Campaign, available for viewing and sharing, subtitled in 20 languages, at www.YouTube.com/ThePowerToBeStrong. In the process, he became one of the most visible, openly-HIV positive people in Asia. Snow tells this story in his riveting, written-as-he-lived-it, living-powerfully-with-HIV memoir, "Life Positive: A Journey to the Center of my Heart." He is also the author of "A Return to Brokeback Mountain: Photos and Interviews from the Historic Hollywood Premiere." For most of the 1990's, Nicholas produced and hosted the hit Los Angeles-area television programs, Tinseltown's Queer and The Nicholas Snow Show. His podcast is about to surpass two million total listens since launching the summer of 2012. He has been openly-gay in the media for about three decades, and is often referred to as "one of the world's primo promo homos." Nicholas lives his mission statement one day at a time which, as he explains, is "to honor and express my creativity in a way that makes a difference."

"Dedicated to the tens of millions of people in the world living with HIV, most of whom do not yet know their status; to everyone who fights for us; and to those who still fear us. Get tested and live longer and be strong." ...Nicholas Snow
SYNOPSIS: In Bangkok, Thailand, Hollywood's primo promo homo on the go-go Nicholas Snow is eking out a modest living as a foreign correspondent, actor and media personality when, in a moment of personal desperation, he makes a decision that changes his life forever.
Decades into the AIDS pandemic and completely armed with the knowledge to protect himself, during a moment of passion with a man who is unaware of having HIV, Nicholas has a rare slip in his safer sex behavior and becomes HIV positive.
What might have been the end of a lifetime of dreams turns out to be only the beginning of a remarkable journey that Nicholas himself chronicles in real time as he is living it. Part 12-step-program 4th-step inventory, part reality-show-on-paper, this is the painful yet triumphant saga of how Nicholas Snow uses his own mistake as an opportunity to empower millions of people throughout the world by disclosing not only his HIV status, but his experience, strength and hope as well.
