WHEN JACK MACKENROTH CALLED OUT FOR HELP TO CREATE VISIBILITY FOR HIS 2012 CALENDAR, HOW COULD WE REFUSE. ESPECIALLY SINCE THIS PIECE OF WALL ART SUPPORTS THE AMERICAN FOUNDATION OF AIDS RESEARCH. JACK HAS DECIDED TO DONATE 100% OF THE CALENDAR’S PROCEEDINGS TO HELP FINDING A CURE FOR AIDS.
As the first television personality since Pedro Zamora to be vocal about his HIV status, Jack Mackenroth has quickly become the most visible, out HIV+ advocate and educator in the country… if not the world. With the release of his 2012 calendar in support of the American Foundation of AIDS Research, he hopes to raise both money and awareness for AIDS research, and to show through his photographs that a person living with HIV can be in top physical form, healthy and sexy.
Designer, athlete and HIV/AIDS activist and educator Jack Mackenroth has had the privilege of shooting with some of the best photographers in the business. Jack is a role model to many people in the HIV community and a fitness model that many aspire to emulate. “I have amassed such an amazing collection of images that I wanted to put out a calendar that will help to combat the silence and stigma associated with being HIV-positive,” says Mackenroth. He adds, “If I can raise money for HIV/AIDS research, it’s even better.” His calendar will count 17 pages and runs from January 2012 to May 2013. Each month of the 15 month calendar will feature a different photographer with a very different style. Among them Adam Bouska (NOH8), Rick Day, Carsten Fleck, Frank Louis, James Franklin, Karl Giant, Thomas Synnamon, Mattheus Lian, Richard Gerst, Ray John Pila, Sonny Tong, Thomas Evans, Krys Fox and Preston Cros.
Jack has been a vocal and visible advocate of the HIV community, touring the country through numerous speaking engagements and special appearances at events. He continues to speak around the country and will be planning calendar signing events in the upcoming months. His memoir, “Making Lemonaids” will be released this winter.
