Ramiro comes from a large immigrant family. His parents came from Mexico and he was born in Chicago. He is 56 years old, HIV positive since 1998, and is in a relationship with a black man. He attained graduate education, and has a rewarding and relatively well-paid professional career. “I’m thinking that I’m getting old … I get sad sometimes thinking about it.
