About Me   About Me
Barry currently works with various AIDS service organizations (ASO) in Toronto, Canada while completing his final semester of History studies at York University.

He is the Co-Chair of the Advisory Committee of Positive Youth Outreach (PYO), a Toronto-based and peer-driven program that operates to empower, support and affirm the lives of young people under the age of 30 living with HIV/AIDS. At the AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT) he volunteers in the Harm Reduction Outreach program which targets venues where gay/bi/msm youth and men congregate and engage in substance use (specifically "party drug" use). The program aims to educate gay/bi/msm youth and men and their communities on harm reduction activities and strategies related to party drugs. Barry is also in training with the Speakers Bureau at the Toronto People with AIDS Foundation (PWA). The Speakers Bureau is a team of trained volunteers, all of whom living with HIV/AIDS, who conduct speaking engagements at public schools, health centres, companies, correctional facilities etc., and share stories of their experiences. Their efforts aim to challenge the stigma and discrimination associated with HIV/AIDS by putting a human face to the disease.

In addition to his years at York University, he has studied at Keio University in Tokyo, Japan and at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. He has also lived and worked in Sydney, Australia, and Inuvik, a small town in the Western Canadian Arctic.
