Truth Talk is a show that deals with barriers to quality of life for vulnerable groups but specifically same gender loving men of color and the people who support them. With this said, HIV is a real important issue to tackle particularly, because HIV has been such an issue for men who have sex with other men.

The host of Truth talk has spent the vast majority of their careers combating HIV on the front lines, so when the opportunity came to do a show, HIV was not at the top of list. Although It has never been the intention of the show to exploit HIV positive people or ignore it all together, as a barrier we thought it is best to deal with the tangential issues that promote HIV transmission and decrease opportunities for viral suppression, as this impact quality of life.

On this episode of Truth Talk, we will break this thing by addressing HIV directly but in a different context.  Most people blame lack of knowledge for the spread of HIV, others say self esteem while some say access to condoms. What if these are only tangential reasons? What if you contracted HIV while working in  the field of HIV prevention, while knowing the risk and having access or even while managing to have some functional level of self esteem? What would this say about how we ought to be approaching HIV prevention? Challenging stigma? And working with communities.

Join us this Sunday, May 11th, at 1pm EST, as we ponder these questions with special guest HIV prevention expert, holistic life coach, up and coming photographer, and professional poet Louis Ortiz.
