Choosing to Love Poz Guys

Jake Sobo writes: "The serodivide is crumbling. Hookup sites that used to allow only two options for HIV status now offer endless choices, from undetectable to on PrEP. Recent life expectancy projections suggest that gay men who test HIV-positive today and start treatment quickly will live longer than those who do not...Unlearning decades of stigma and fear will not happen overnight. It will take time and learning. That’s okay. But the cost of staying in place is too great, both for poz guys who face that stigma and fear on a daily basis, and to our communities which remain divided."

PrEP, The Pill, and the Fear of Promiscuity

LGBT academic Ian Lekus compares the furore around PrEP with the one that met the development of the contraceptive pill: "Acknowledged or not, PrEP users — and for that matter, three decades-plus of HIV/AIDS activism — build directly on how the Pill’s early adopters challenged the presumed omniscience of medical authorities. The experiences of the Pill’s first users also remind us to keep a critical eye trained on those institutions and narratives that circumscribe the quest for balancing health, desire, and autonomy."

Bareback Culture, HIV, and Our Gay Future

I have commented several times on Facebook about my anxiety over the sudden popularity and push for widespread use of Truvada. I'm not opposed to the use of Truvada, and I agree that it is an exciting development in fighting the spread of HIV/AIDS. However, while some reject the idea that the promotion of Truvada among gay men has anything to do with barebacking culture -- and subsequently vilify anyone who makes the suggestion -- it doesn't negate the reality that barebacking has become a widespread practice in gay male culture.
