It is so encouraging to see this page up and thriving! Sometimes the simplest of posts mean the most to people, even those you may not know you touch. Thank you... for having this page and being ever-present in the fight against HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, and all other STI's… Sexual health is something that impacts us all in one way or another, regardless of sexual preference, orientation, level of activity, or willingness to admit that we are affected. Keep up the great work!!! See More
