Let’s Talk About AIDS

How does a gay male 22-year-old confront the disease?

He’s the famous gay airman whose coming out video went viral on YouTube. Recently, Randy Phillips talked to I’m From Driftwood about how his generation is dealing with HIV and AIDS. “I kind of wanted to parlay what little bit of attention I got from YouTube into something I think is a taboo for our generation,” says the 22-year-old. “Not very many people in their early 20s like to think about AIDS.”

Phillips is currently taking part in the seven-day AIDS/LifeCycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. You can follow the adventures via I’m From Driftwood’s Facebook page.
