There are hundreds of dating sites for young, amorous singles to log on and find love nowadays. Destinations like Tinder and Match allow users to set up their profile using characteristics that will potentially attract the kind of mate they’re looking for. Now imagine an app where users bluntly admit they’re living with an incurable disease.
There are communities online that are support groups for people living with HIV and AIDS, where people communicate with others under the same circumstances. Infinity Loves Atlanta is a new Atlanta-based dating site (with a GoFundMe account) that will provide a sex-positive community where HIV positive individuals can find meaningful, fulfilling relationships with local singles in search of the same.
Liven Jackson had the vision to create this platform while working as a Patient Account Representative for an infectious disease doctor in Atlanta. “I was inspired to create a space where people in the HIV/AIDS community could be themselves,” he says.
As of December 31, 2012 over 50,436 individuals in Georgia were recorded as living with HIV. Additionally, among the 18 Public Health Districts of Georgia, Fulton and DeKalb have the highest rates of persons living with HIV infection and Stage 3 AIDS.
Infinity Loves Atlanta is set to launch on December 20, 2015.
