This is my inaugural article on Medium.

Allow me to introduce myself as a refugee from Quora. I was banned early this morning for reasons I fail to understand.

I contributed heavily on Quora answering questions about HIV testing and treatment, about LGBTQ rights and history, and about a range of other subjects.

I’m a middle-aged gay man, former activist and organiser, and former member of both Act Up and Queer Nation.

I hope to begin contributing on Medium soon, as soon as I can get my toes wet and understand how things work.

I will probably port over some of my fictionalized memoir to begin.

If anyone from Quora sees this, I’d appreciate a hello.

I’m feeling very demoralized.
