The storyteller, Ferry, is 33 years old, and living in Jakarta, Indonesia. Ferry was a male sex worker. After being diagnosed with HIV, he didn’t think he would be able to find a partner and share a happy relationship. Contrary to his initial thought, living with HIV turned out not to be an obstacle to him finding a partner. In this podcast, Ferry shares his story on his initial struggle and on being in a serodiscordant relationship.
