Paul Thorn has been HIV-positive all of his adult life. He's had the virus since he was 17-years-old and experienced the darkest days of the pandemic in the late 1980s and 1990s, indeed he nearly lost his own life. His diagnosis inspired him to become an AIDS activist and also to write. A long-term survivor and now aged 48-years-old, he's worked internationally with some of the world's most highly respected organisations and NGOs.
In 2009 he was widely credited with overturning the ban that prevented people living with HIV from entering the United States and a change in the law. The author of several books, he has been a regular contributor to a variety of news, health and lifestyle publications for over two decades. He's a regular voice on BBC Radio Sussex. In 2014 he was nominated as Stonewall Journalist of the Year. He lives in Brighton, England.
