Our annual series, “Dine Out for My Life,” features a different local who has been affected by HIV/AIDS. It’s been leading up to tonight’s Dining Out for Life (DOFL) event throughout the Philly region. .
My name is … Jim King
What is your Philly connection?
I grew up in Wilmington, Del., and lived there until my late-’20s . I lived in Delaware County for about 25 years, and then two years ago I finally moved to 19th and Christian streets. I always wanted to live in Philly so I’m glad I made the move.
What do you do for work?
I worked as a union electrician in Delaware, but retired in 2009.
How has HIV/AIDS affected your life?
In a few ways: In the early-'80s I was using drugs intravenously and having lots of anonymous sex when I first heard of HIV/AIDS. I tried to educate myself on the virus and get the facts and not the myths. Over the years I lost some friends and family to HIV/AIDS.
The biggest thing I have learned from my experience with HIV/AIDS is …
There are a lot of people who really care about people living with HIV/AIDS.
Any Dining Out for Life restaurant recommendations?
I personally will be at Frankford Hall the night of DOFL.
