As a board member of Whitman Walker Clinic I thought it would be important to post a message to a lot of our young black gay men living in Washington D.C.
In D.C. As many of you know we're seeing a high rate in HIV infections among Black MSM. So I also made this film to point out the empowerment is a key factor to anyone's infection whether they are black, white, gay or straight.
but right now a trouble area is the rates of infections in the black gay community in DC.
We need to empower these young black males and make sure that they understand that there is nothing wrong with telling your partner to use a condom or to get an HIV test.
EMPOWER yourself by going to get a HIV test. Don't feel ashamed or embarrassed. It's better to know than not to know. I earlier you know if you're infected the better off you will be psychologically and physically.
JUST DO IT
USE A CONDOM
