Positive Voices: Yogie Wirastra

This is a very interesting and positive interview with a 28 year old HIV + gay man.

It was a double blow for 20-year-old Yogie Wirastra who found out he was HIV-positive shortly after his boyfriend was killed in a traffic accident. That was eight years ago and for many years he did not tell anyone about his infection until four years ago when he finally told someone – a close friend.

Just two months ago, Yogie came out to his father, whom he wasn’t close to, as being gay and HIV-positive. To his surprise, his father told him that he was sorry – not because he is positive, but because he was not there to comfort him when he (Yogie) received his test result.

Worth reading in full. Inspiring and gives hope to those in depression.
