Yes, I'm gay. I probably was since the day I was born. On my 21st birthday, I sort of had my debut. I came out to my parents. A little drama from mom, and some indifference from dad. An above-average coming out. Almost perfect.

Nine years later, two weeks before my 30th birthday, I found out... I'M HIV POSITIVE.

And so my story begins... I'm BACK IN THE CLOSET.

Thank You

thank you prayerLast Wednesday was a great day for me. It left me with so much running through my head, I hardly felt I slept through the night. But I wasn’t tired. I was inspired.

Lying in bed the following morning, way before my alarm clock rang, I was looking forward to the day ahead. And then it happened. I found myself praying. Praying, not because I needed something, but because I just wanted to talk to God.

Thank you for giving me this gift. You’ve made clear that you’ve clipped my wings, but never failed to show me that I can still soar.

Thank you for sending me your angels. They’ve been showing up in unexpected places, unexpected times and unexpected ways, but always the right places, the right times and the right ways.

Thank you for helping me find my voice. It was a voice that would not come from my mouth, but would be heard by more ears.

Thank you for giving me so much to say. But thank you more for giving me the courage to share it with the world.

Thank you for my journey. It hasn’t been the easiest, and I doubt it will ever be, but I know you’ve been watching over me every step of the adventure.


I would’ve really wanted to tell you what triggered this, but I can’t. I really hope I wasn’t sworn to secrecy, but you’ll find out when the time is right.

Let’s just say I was fortunate enough to have gone through the right circumstances, that led me to the right people. People who shared my advocacy, and had the will, the mind, and the heart to take it that much further.

I’m proud to be part of this team, and can’t wait to tell you more about them. But for now, pardon me, but my lips are sealed. Rest assured, I’m happy.
