Regulation Hottie Alejandro Castillo Talks Porn, Sex, and Living with HIV: WATCH

Mexican porn performer Alejandro Castillo recently created a YouTube channel to explore issues around HIV and sexual health.

In his first video he spoke openly about living with HIV. The declaration is groundbreaking, as he is one of the first openly HIV-positive porn actors in Mexico and Latin America.

 

Castillo is an international porn actor, but his talents are not limited to the adult industry. He’s been a committed advocate for LGBT rights and has worked to reduce stigma around sex and HIV. He’s spoken out for all those who may not have a voice, and he’s demonstrated how critical representation is in the struggle for justice and equality. I had the pleasure of speaking with Alejandro Castillo about his new YouTube channel and how he hopes to make an impact on the community.

Hornet’s Alex Garner spoke to Castillo.

HORNET: Why did you decide to come out about being HIV-positive now? What has been the reaction from people in Mexico and online?

ALEJANDRO CASTILLO: Because I wasn’t ready until now. HIV status is a personal matter, and opening publicly in this way is a process that should only be carried out by someone who decides to do so by their own choice and for a specific purpose. In my case it is to increase visibility, because people who live with HIV tend to be invisible to society. I think that someone like me talking about their status publicly and having such an active sex life opens up the topic of conversation so that people speak about the effectiveness of antiretroviral treatment and the fact that being undetectable makes it impossible to transmit HIV to others.

Regarding the online reactions, most have been good and supportive, although there are always those who write from fear and not from information.
