Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m a dreamer, and a sensitive guy who is committed to the well-being of the LGBTQ youth. I’m very social but don’t usually show my emotions. I’m not used to talking about myself. I’m a 29-year-old Mexican, and I’m currently the CEO of a Digital Marketing Agency.
What got you to where you are today?
The necessity of generating more positive, viral content to help society.
Why are you a #BlueRibbonBoy?
I see a lot of fear, disinformation, discrimination and rejection, and I’m a #BlueRibbonBoy because I want men to be informed on how to take care of their sexual health.
What kind of actions do you take to promote and inform your followers about HIV?
I will be participating in different forums and will be sharing meaningful content with important information. HIV is not the end, but the fear of getting tested can be, if you let it.
Will you be doing something special for World HIV Day on Dec. 1?
This year I will be participating in a special panel about youth and HIV at the Mexican Institute for Youths.
