Young people living with HIV in the US have the potential to live long and healthy lives. However, the psychosocial impact of an HIV diagnosis, complicated by poverty, inequality, stigma and marginalization, create structural and behavioral challenges for young people that can overwhelm them and their health care providers. This narrative provides a reflective analysis of insights and discussions captured through participant observation at Next Step's five-day conference for young people living with HIV. A qualitative study we conducted in 2011 that captures the voices of young people living with HIV at Next Step's annual One Love: No Longer Voiceless Conference.
