Ich will mich nicht verstecken. Als meine Krankheit begann, habe ich angefangen, die T-Shirts zu machen. Die meisten verstehen nicht, da jemand mit dieser Krankheit so offen umgeht, es so deutlich auf sein T-Shirt schreibt. Deutsche AIDS-Hilfe e.V. Foto: Ines de Nil/Gestaltung: Lilo + White.

Translation of text: "I will not hide myself away. When my disease started, I started to make T-shirts. Most people do not understand that someone who deals so openly with this disease writes it so clearly on his T-shirt"
Extract from www.aidsmap.com: "About 8% of people with AIDS in Britain develop toxoplasmosis" which "most commonly causes lesions in the brain (cerebral toxoplasmosis). By exerting pressure on normal brain tissue these at first cause headache, fever, lethargy and confusion, progressing to fits, vision distortions, strokes (a weakness on one side of the body), changes in thinking and personality and difficulty speaking. Without treatment, as the abscesses grow bigger they can cause coma and eventually death."
