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.

personal videos that capture the experiences of young gay and bisexual men

seek testing, treatment, care and support.
