POZ: An Honest Conversation

By Oriol R. Gutierrez Jr. at POZ Blogs

CuĂŠntame (Spanish for count me or tell me your story) is a new initiative that seeks to encourage Latinos to tell their stories.

“An Honest Conversation” is their LGBT video series. They include the coming out stories of Latina lesbians and an undocumented gay Latino.

The video of Ronnie, however, holds the most interest for me since I can relate to so much of his story.

He was bullied in the Army for being gay. Mercifully, I did not have that experience in the Marine Corps.

We do, however, share an understanding of the challenges in coming out about being gay and having HIV to our Latino family and friends.

Kudos to Ronnie for overcoming so many hurdles, including HIV. I wish him well.
