The number of young men being diagnosed with HIV has doubled in ten years; the number of new diagnoses among gay and bisexual men has reached a record high, according to the most recent data. The virus is rarely out of the news, and yet, because of continuing developments in treatment, few of us understand what life with the condition is like now. Three young men, all diagnosed in their 20s, talk about living with the virus.

According to, "When We Know Better, We Do Better: State of HIV/AIDS Science and Treatment Literacy," a recently released national report by the Black AIDS Institute and others, the missing link to ending the AIDS epidemic in the U.S. is increasing the science and treatment literacy among the non-medical HIV/AIDS workforce.

Dating While HIV-Positive: Knowing What You're Worth

As anyone can imagine, learning that you are newly HIV-positive can feel like taking a bullet. So sometimes it is best talk to a stranger before you can catch your breath and find your words for your family and friends. Although I am no psychotherapist, I can definitely relate and empathize with a myriad of fears that flood a person’s headspace when they first receive the news.

Appropriately, it occurs during the Sixteen Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. Why so appropriate?

Though not always self-evident, the connection is clear."

A Letter to HIV on the 16th Anniversary of My Diagnosis

I know that thanks to you I had to take a very good look at myself, and the world. I had to look straight in the eyes of death and illness. Thanks to you I stopped taking my life for granted. I had to ask difficult questions to myself. Recognise my fragilities, and my responsibilities. What was most painful: I had to question the possibility of love and intimacy.
