About the Youth Summit

With an emphasis on creative utilization of social media as the cornerstone
of this program, NASTAD, BAI, AIDS United, and Greater Than AIDS are seeking
youth leaders to use the power of their personal stories to reduce the
spread of HIV among young gay and bisexual men.

Selected participants will engage in an informative exchange to produce
personal videos that capture the experiences of young gay and bisexual men
in relation to HIV, in order to inspire peers to understand their risk and
seek testing, treatment, care and support.
