'When I tried to think about my earliest memory of HIV or AIDS, I couldn't seem to go back further than the first time I had sex. I was staying in a cheap hostel in Amsterdam a few months before my 19th birthday and one night ended up at a really cruisy gay bar. It was packed, dimly lit. There I was, a tall, lanky 18-year-old boy from country Victoria, standing in the corner with no idea what I was doing. A few beers turned my furtive glances into awkward stares, and after about an hour a cute Israeli guy probably twice my age stuck up a conversation.' (Introduction)
