Even legally married gay spouses living in states without marriage equality will benefit from copious new policies.
Marriage equality’s effects will go beyond rights and into greater acceptance for people with HIV.
According to the CDC, the stigma associated with HIV and homosexuality can contribute to the spread of HIV in Latino communities.
Meet one of Latinos Salud’s newest employees!
Benjamin is one of Latinos Salud’s newest employees. He first joined the SOMOS youth program experience as a Core Group Volunteer, planning community-building activities. Six months later, his passionate commitment to the community led Benjamin to join the agency as a full-time. He is CDC certified as an MPowerment Coordinator, certified in Phlebotomy, as well as being state-certified 500/501 HIV test counselor. Benjamin enjoys helping people maximize their potential, all while improving community health and unity.
Benjamin is studying Community Health Science at the University of Miami. He has a passion for making a difference in the high schools and colleges in South Florida, so he has brought the SOMOS program to several campus-based LGBT groups, as he had when he was volunteering in Central Florida. Benjamin loves meeting new people and also dancing Latin style dances. Stop in to meet Benjamin, and learn how to join the great activities with the SOMOS group members.
