Through his page about PrEP, Damon is generating and moderating the open and factual dialogue that needs to happen around this issue in the community. His page amazes me with the HIV/AIDS PrEP prevention positive comments and the rise of a new movement of activists. His positive attitude and disposition is also contagious.  — Luis
