Otis Jr

Otis is a young, gay man living in Dallas. Despite always having a very close relationship with his family, he waited a year to tell them that he was living with HIV. That fear was quickly replaced with hope and love.

With the support of his family, Otis is managing his HIV and living a full life. Today, he counsels other young people newly diagnosed about how to talk with their families about HIV and about getting into care.
