impulseFrom Impulse Group and The Advisorie, comes this artistic and educational short, a sexy portrayal of a couple taking the next step in their relationship, and the influence that knowledge, communication and compassion has on their deeper connection. The short makes its online debut today as a lead up to Impulse Group's panel discussion on PReP and HIV prevention in Los Angeles on November 9th, and the launch of it's WHY NOT campaign. Why not know? Why not ask? Why not tell?

Impulse Group teamed up with Tastemaker, John Saint-Denis of the Advisorie Group, (www.advisorie.com) ; Producer, Chris Rallo; and Director, Nino Mancuso; known for their artistic digital short films that bring story to life. This short highlights the journey from a break-up to knowing one's HIV status to communicating that status. And of course, love and compassion prevail.

Parker, played by Kyle Heinen, finds that love in his unlikely nerdy co-worker, Billy, played by Namir Nasir.

Additional cast includes: Tim Lee, Daniel Del Valle, John Saint-Denis, Eli Davis, Daniel Gradias and Jessica Piersee

Openly gay, YouTube heartthrob, Eli Lieb of Los Angeles donated his haunting cover of Rihanna's 'Stay' to the film. Download the music at https://itunes.apple.com/album/stay-s...
