Josh Robbins is an HIV activist in Nashville, Tennessee who founded the blog 'I'm Still Josh,' after he discovered he was HIV+ in 2012. 

Much of his work revolves around reporting on HIV, reducing stigmas, and advocating healthcare companies to cover HIV medications, but he's also known as the non-denominational "Pos Preacher" and Joel Osteen of the HIV+ community. 

Robbins observed how many people in the HIV+ community, especially in the South, were pushed away from the church and left without any spiritual or religious motivation. Robbins hopes to replace some of that with his motivational talks.
