"The jumping off point for this moment was straightforward: Magic Johnsonâ€™s initial announcement had been recorded and was available for me to watch. It was emotional. I went with almost a straight portrait from that day, with a nod to the Lakers colors. For me, this moment was about awareness. In the case of the HIV virus, which is a continuing global concern, awareness and access to a means of protection are vital. When prominent figures step forward and talk honestly about his or her circumstances, I think that people tend to sit up and take notice. I hope that through Magic Johnsonâ€™s actions that day, and the efforts of him and numerous other organizations and individuals since then, more and more people are able to remain safe and healthy." - Alyssa Winans
