On Friday, Nico Decastro, a Dallas-based singer-songwriter launched a testimonial video to share his own struggles with being open about his HIV status, and to encourage others to get tested and share their own stories.

His hope is to raise the much needed funds for APAIT, a nonprofit located in Los Angeles whose mission is “to positively impact the quality of life for medically underserved communities living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS and other health disparities through culturally competent and linguistically appropriate programs in Southern California.”

Decastro was recently featured in articles in Dallas Voice and He Said Magazine, where he dives deeper into the circumstances that surround his contracting HIV, and his journey to make peace with his status.

In September of this year, Decastro launched his latest single entitled Lost Soul, an anthem to his journey to self discovery and reconciliation with living his truth.
