QWhat have you been up to since your time on ''Project Runway''? A Since the show I've had the opportunity to become an advocate for HIV/AIDS education/awareness. I rang the bell on The New York Stock Exchange with Liza Minnelli, Kenneth Cole and Cheyenne Jackson for AMFAR on December 1, World AIDS Day. I gave a speech in Washington, D.C., for UnAIDS, also on World AIDS Day. I had the honor to tell my story to Nancy Pelosi and Diana DeGette. I designed a special T-shirt for Piperlime benefiting AMFAR for World AIDS Day and again for Valentine's Day. I joined ''Runway'' alum Jack Mackenroth on a national HIV/AIDS education campaign for Merck called Living Positive by Design. I spoke at the opening ceremonies for AIDS Walk New York. I travel to colleges around the nation speaking to students about my story living with HIV. I've really taken on the responsibility to continue the conversation about HIV/AIDS after revealing my HIV on Project Runway.I also showed a F/W 2011 collection at El Paseo Fashion Week with Michael Costello and Christopher Collins.
