An HIV-Positive Gay Man Getting Married Reflects on Marriage Equality
August 13, 2013
On Aug. 9, 2013, Daniel Leyva of the Latino Commission on AIDS married his partner of 10 years, John Hatchett. Both are long-term survivors of HIV. Having seen the toll the HIV epidemic has taken on many long-term couples -- disapproving families, eviction notices, legal problems, immigration issues -- Leyva wrote a blog for the Center for Hispanic Health Equity just before getting married that detailed exactly why marriage equality is a big deal for those living with HIV.
To read more about his views on HIV and marriage equality, head over to the Center for Hispanic Health Equity's blog. And, congratulations, Daniel!
