Jim Pickett works as the policy director for the AIDS Foundation and has been HIV positive since 1995. He brought his friend and colleague, David Munar (who is also HIV positive), to the MobileBooth to talk about the difficulties of living with the disease.

Although David works for the AIDS Foundation as the organization's Associate Director, being open about his own HIV status, especially with his family, has not been easy.

They were recorded in the StoryCorps MobileBooth when it visited Chicago in 2005.This story originally broadcast September 29, 2005.
