Young Men With Detectable Viral Loads More Likely to Engage in Risky Behavior

A new study on HIV-positive men and transgender women who have sex with men reported that participants with detectable viral loads were more likely to have anal sex without condoms than those who were virally suppressed, and that condom use was closely related to substance abuse. The study examined participants age 15 to 26 across the US from 2009 to 2012. Among those who had detectable viral loads, a full 44 percent reported condomless sex, a significant percentage higher than those who were virally suppressed but had condomless sex (which was only 25 percent).

MSMGF: Good Gays get a Blue Ribbon, Bad Gays Bear their Cross

On November 23, the Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF) announced that it had partnered with gay dating App Hornet to launch Blue Ribbon Boy, “the largest targeted, global HIV viral suppression campaign to date”. The MSMGF hopes to reach 7 million MSM around the world through the Hornet dating platform, asking them to answer a short series of yes/no questions about their sexual health. Then, “Based on their answers, those who qualify will receive a blue ribbon icon on their profile photo signifying their personal commitment to sexual health, irrespective of their HIV status. Men who do not meet the standard will be offered recommendations for ways to protect and improve their sexual health so they can become a Blue Ribbon Boy”. Let’s look at the more disturbing issues arising from an intervention that pits the “good gays” who get a reward against the “bad gays” who bear their cross.

World AIDS Day: A Slut’s Perspective

"The gay culture in which I am enmeshed is no longer living in the grip of fear. ... I see gay men become increasingly confident and enthusiastic about interacting with one another, both online and in social spaces. We talk about the sex we’re going to have, and we negotiate boundaries. We take responsibility for our own health, and we show concern for the health of others. ... In short, sexuality is moving beyond being merely accepted; it is becoming celebrated. The rise of slut pride has emerged from the ashes of the 1970s."
