In his story, he tells of his efforts to take care of his partner and live a normal life. On August 19, 2010, a few months after making this digital story, David died of advanced HIV. His story is included as part of the Youth Leaders Speak collection as a way of honoring his memory and his tireless efforts to advocate for the rights of people living with HIV.
