Knowledge is the foundation for all progress and change. It would be amazing if we are able to take our collective ability to build productive channels for greater awareness and education in society. Whether it’s in the realm of HIV, AIDS, or sexual diversity — let’s make this world a better place.
In terms of public health, being free of discrimination from outside and within the LGBT community begins with having the right knowledge about HIV. I strongly believe that all individuals should know their HIV status, and develop a positive symmetry of acceptance regardless of status. Public discourse and progress in HIV research must go hand-in-hand—I’m proud to be a part of this effort at the Love Foundation.
I want to help provide as many people as possible with correct information about how to prevent sexually transmitted diseases. I try to widely disseminate correct information about prevention, detection and treatment. Only when this information is available will those involved be able to correctly assess risks and consider the best way to take care of themselves.
