Biography

Duane Quintana was born in 1979 and grew up in rural Idaho. After receiving an HIV diagnosis, Quintana became an activist by educating high school students about HIV. These school presentations grew to become the non-profit organization, Allies Linked for Prevention of HIV and AIDS (a.l.p.h.a.). This group provides testing and counselling and has now grown to areas across the state. Within the interview is Quintana’s family’s reaction to his HIV diagnosis, marriage, and later, the breakup of his marriage. Quintana believes that that through a.l.p.h.a. and the Idaho AIDS foundation, there is less fear and more empowerment regarding HIV.
