The Positives of being Negative

HIV negative gay men hear a lot about what they should be doing (or not doing), but rarely about what they are doing well. MedalGRAB.jpgThey have had to plod along, making the best choices they could to remain negative, fearing every blood test, and often watching friends become infected with HIV.

In the anxious world of sexuality and HIV risk, we could all use a little love and support. So, in the spirit of everyone getting the attention they deserve, allow me a moment to throw a party for HIV negative gay men.

Clearly, HIV positive people are subjected to daily stigmatization and prejudice, from the workplace to the dating pool. But this isn't a contest. Can we show a little love to our negative friends today? I hope this is a posting you'll share with someone you care about.
