My Marriage and Very Important Dennis De Leon Voz de Compromiso Award

IMAG1880I wanted to share with the whole world my special moment and also announce that Lisa and I are married! :) We got married in New York.

I was also honored by the Latino Commission on AIDS on May 13th, 2014. The Dennis De Leon Voz de Compromiso Award is a very special award because he was a fierce activist that I hope to be like one day.


Here is a video of the wonderful night at the Cielo Latino Gala and my acceptance speech for the award:
