I think young gay men of color must own this fight. We are an educated, diverse and powerful demographic that has to come together to combat the epidemic. We need more youth and young adult leaders that are courageous and motivated to demand change. We must ensure that the programming, funding and policy voices have our best interest in mind and include us in the room. As a community, we must be more proactive about our health and sexual behaviors, rather than reactive surrounding HIV transmissions. I care because I can't wait for someone else to take action.
