Title

Letter: Reggie Williams to Rashidah Hassan

Description

Reggie Williams, writing from Amsterdam, thanks Hassan for her work with black gay men around HIV and AIDS. He says that he wants to inspire young black gay men to tell their own story, as well as that of African American community-based organizations confronting the AIDS epidemic. Finally, Williams describes the complications of his own advanced disease, including pneumonia, cytomegalovirus, and rectal abcesses. Williams had recently moved to the Netherlands to live with his Dutch partner, Wolfgang, who could not come to the United States due to the travel and immigration ban on HIV-positive people then still in effect.
