I was infected during my first sexual experience at a New York City bathhouse in Times Square in 1984. I was too naive to know about anything.

My goal is to remove the stigma of living with HIV and to educate others so that people do not have to feel ashamed or live in fear of exposure or in isolation from others.

If I were to die of embarrassment or shame because of my HIV, then that would be a tragedy. It is so much easier to live with others knowing, because I know I'm not alone.
