Peaches & Eggplants The internet has long been our go-to space for learning, sharing, or calming our nerves, especially when it comes to topics that are taboo (like, *ahem* sex). Let’s be honest -- When we have questions about our sexual health “Dr. Google” is our first responder, though not always a great one! LiveLifeLoving is a digital roadmap that organizes HIV information and allows youth to discuss taboo topics like sex, so that we can learn from each other’s experiences.

HIV, eh? The rate of new HIV diagnoses has increased in Canadian youth, over the last decade. LiveLifeLoving creates a stigma-free space for youth to gain knowledge about HIV and connect with the resources they need. We use diversity as our advantage to address topics important to youth from all walks of life. Where is the space for youth to ask questions and gain knowledge? And, where is the open platform for someone who has just found out they have HIV?

WOW, that felt good Every now and then when we f***, we get f****d over. When we do, we want reliable content and resources that we can relate to. LiveLifeLoving provides practical content that is easy to navigate and understand. We feature information from doctors, people living with HIV, activists and community members. LiveLifeLoving provides real-life information you NEED to care for your health.


F.W.B?! We’re your friends with benefits. LiveLifeLoving is not basic or judgey (but, are cute and sassy!). We aren’t here to tell you what is right, but how to do “it” right.

Not your basic B**** Our goal is to provide youth from Canada and all over the world with an opportunity to share knowledge, resources, stories, and videos to help bring important sex-related health issues to light.

Need Help?

We all need help at one point or another. Whether you or a loved one were just diagnosed with HIV, love to have sex, use recreational drugs, or are just curious, LiveLifeLoving tells you what you need to know to keep yourself safe.


I just found out I’m HIV+

I have a lot of sex Sex is alluring (from vanilla to kinky) and having lots of it, is even better. It is important to know how to protect yourself and your partner(s) so that you can continue to love yourself and others.

If you just found out you are HIV-positive, we want to make this moment as manageable as possible. We offer help through short, easy to understand information, stories and advice from others who have, “been there, done that”.

I love to PnP

My partner/friend just found out

I just found out I’m HIV+

It is important to support and know how to best cope with a friend, who is now living with HIV. It’s also important to get yourself tested and learn how to have a safer sexual relationship with each other.

My partner/friend just found out

Some call it chemsex, Party & Play, or just, high and horny. Whatever you take to get your night (or day) going, there’s always a way to prevent passing/getting HIV. We’re not here to judge -just here to keep the party going (safely).

Treatment & Prevention

Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate - WTF! LiveLifeLoving will simplify the science behind your medication and lab results. Our goal is to help you understand what you’re taking, how it works, and what to expect from it. Prevention is never about just one thing. Rather, it is learning to anticipate and plan for activities that put you at risk. We explore all paths of prevention from condoms and PrEP, to clean needles, crack cocaine or snorting and naloxone kits.

Opportunities and initiatives for positive change Help us create a global network of youth-HIV peer educators by getting involved

LetsStopAIDS is a Canadian youth-HIV charity that focuses on HIV prevention and knowledge exchange by engaging young people and fostering leadership. We are creating a global network of youth-HIV leaders. Founded in 2004, by the then-15 year old Shamin Mohamed Jr., LetsStopAIDS engages young people in the promotion of HIV prevention through open spaces that encourage dialogue.

LiveLifeLoving is an online portal that engages young people to learn about HIV, while sharing information and stories in a safe and open forum. This isn’t your typical “learn about HIV” website. Through videos, blogs and stories, LiveLifeLoving creates unique content to connect local communities in a virtual space.

(1) Provide youth-friendly HIV content online for everyone (regardless of HIV status). (2) Be a virtual first point-of-contact for youth living with HIV. (3) Provide meaningful support to youth affected by HIV.

It’s simple to just forget that HIV is a local issue. It’s easy to say it’s “over there” or it won’t ever “affect me”. For what may seem to some as a distant issue, can immediately become the focus of our life. And, without giving it love and attention, it can literally break someone down. The world needs a space where everyone feels invited, where there is no need to show your face and there’s no judgements on life choices. Building a virtual programme that will help the well-being of communities -- that I will never see, touch or physically be present has a refreshing view that brings back the humility and selflessness that started the HIV movement. I’ve been all over the world – from Antarctica to Zimbabwe, and the message is the same – young people just want to be themselves, explore, reach for goals and ambitions THEY have. Young people want to make their own choices, digest any failures and be more innovative than anyone could even imagine. LiveLifeLoving puts care and attention into fine details like design, style and language that are often overlooked in the HIV world. We are here to blend science and art, into a beautiful, easy-to-understand virtual space. LiveLifeLoving is simply, the embodiment of the love of one’s self and others. With the words of RuPaul Charles, “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?”
