Dating And Fear In The Age Of HIV: 'I'd Like To Sleep With You -- And I'm HIV-Positive'

The dearth of proud, openly positive gay people online in most cities is a lost opportunity for all of us. More open disclosure can lead toward better, more informed, and safer sex. It would also go far toward removing some of the shame we have toward the disease.

HIV Prevention Must Resume Its Place in the Larger LGBT Agenda

Our organizations recently released an issue brief, titled "Ending the HIV Epidemic Among Gay Men in the United States," that outlines a comprehensive agenda that includes taking full advantage of the Affordable Care Act to assure HIV testing, care, and treatment are readily available for all who need them. It also calls for reforms in the health system toward a "whole health" approach to meeting the needs of LGBT people -- from mental health and primary care to HIV prevention interventions for HIV-positive gay men.

With their attention aimed instead at marriage equality—a priority for their educated, affluent (mostly white) supporters—it’s not clear whether the national GLBT groups will rise again to the challenge of hiv/aids in gay America as they once did so brilliantly in the early, terrifying years.

Op-ed: Antigay Blood Ban and What It Means to be Gay

Protesting the ban, if not exactly disloyal, is a challenge to gay solidarity; it alienates positive gay men from negative gay men... The desire to overturn the ban prompts some uncomfortable, soul-searching questions: Are some gay men more concerned with appearing “normal” than with the life-or-death issues that still affect our people?

Please Don't Infect Me, I'm Sorry

I've turned down guys who are open about their positive status. I had it drilled into me that this was a disease to stay far, far away from. I also know better than to sleep with someone who announces himself as HIV positive. Or knew. Now I'm not exactly sure what to think.
