And to end up right back in HIV and AIDS, and in predominantly black community, this time Sub Saharan Africa and fighting some of the same fights and, and championing some of the same causes. It's not all fight this many years later. It feels very surreal at times. very surreal, because I find myself being the one openly black gay man in rooms now.
