POZ magazine has named Adrian M. Lowe, ALPP Staff Attorney, to the 2019 POZ 100, a list of notable advocates in the fight against HIV.
POZ Magazine is an award-winning publication for those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Their annual list celebrates national leaders in this community, each year with a different focus.
The 10th annual POZ 100 celebrates advocates who are transgender, gender-nonconforming and nonbinary, a population with some of the highest HIV rates in the country. The CDC estimates that trans people continue to test positive for HIV at three times the national average.
Adrian M. Lowe has been a staff attorney with the AIDS Law Project since he graduated from law school in 2012. His clients are those living with HIV who need help with public benefits appeals, legal name changes, estate planning and probate matters.
Adrian has represented clients before administrative agencies and in federal and state court in a number of HIV-related civil rights cases. He is also co-founder of the trans prisoner advocacy group Hearts on a Wire, and fights HIV criminalization as a committee member of the Pennsylvania HIV Justice Network.
We were all thrilled when he recently became a grandfather for the first time, and the first ALPP staffer to become a grandparent while employed here.
We are incredibly proud of Adrian and the outstanding work he does every day on behalf of people with HIV.
