With National HIV Testing Day on June 27th, this would be the perfect time to discuss the epidemic of HIV. Bringing the awareness of HIV/AIDS is one of those things that always will need to be discussed and kept on the forefront. Though people are getting tested and wearing condoms there has still be in a rise in HIV/AIDS cases. Tune in for this important interview!
For so long, HIV has been a prominent disease in the community and we are having an episode to discuss everyone's different views toward the disease and how to overcome it as well as determine the cause of its spread and why it has yet to be eradicated. The purpose is to not only bring awareness to the disease itself but also to educate others on the people they may or may not know that have it; to create a better understanding of one another.
On Today's Show -
We will be discussing the ballroom scene, Houses and there relationship to the Philadelphia LGBTQ Community at large and HIV Testing.

"Sometimes it is as much about the destination as it is about the journey, especially when the experience, as a whole, enables a process of rediscovery of self and reevaluation of life. Such idea comes to mind upon reading Life Positive: A Journey to the Center of My Heart, a new book by foreign correspondent, actor, activist and media personality Nicholas Snow, who delivers a candid story about the power of perseverance, and the necessity of believing in and following one's dreams in spite of all odds." ...Alina Oswald, A&U Magazine

HIV and AIDS is the silent killer in the black community and folks just don't want to talk about it but this week I am talking about it on my show.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, African-Americans make up nearly half of the roughly one million Americans HIV. Young adults account for much of the rising number of infections, especially African-American teenagers.
The CDC estimates that more than half of the young people diagnosed with HIV between the ages of 13 and 24 - that roughly 14 percent overall - are African-American. to shine a spotlight on this epidemic I am doing a series "Black Men Living With HIV In America.
My first guest was Marcus McPherson an HIV positive African-American man who grew up in Mississippi and now lives and goes to college in New York City. My second guess was Justin B Terry-Smith an HIV advocate and activist from Washington DC. Today my guest is Christopher Barnhill, you've seen him on BET's 106 & Park, on the cover of many magazines and he speaks at conferences all around the country. He is an HIV/AIDS Advocate and activist from D.C. He was born with HIV but didn't know his status until he was 16 and decided his status would be his mission.
Today we learn who he is, what it has been like for him living as a Black man with HIV in America and what his mission is.
Black Men Living With HIV In America is a series that looks beyond the numbers and puts a face and a story to the numbers that we always hear about. What is it like to be HIV positive and a Black Man? Why are more ana more Black men becoming HIV positive? And is the prevention and outreach message the right or wrong message as we see an increase in younger Black males? Is the message reaching the target or not reaching the target and if not then what are we doing to change and target those Black men at a greater rick of infection? These are the question that we must ask so that we can move forward and maybe then reach the goal of zero new infections among the Black community.
My guest today is Justin B Terry-Smith, a noted African-American HIV and gay civil rights activist, advocate and the creator of ‘Justin’s HIV Journal,” a popular Youtube video blog in which he shares his trials and tribulations of living with HIV. He is also a U.S. Air Force veteran and married to Dr. Philip Terry-Smith and they are the proud parents of Lundyn.
Because February 7th, is the National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, the show of this week will address the Intersection of HIV/AIDS, Violence against Women and Girls, & Gender–Related Health Disparities.
Data support the need to address not only HIV/AIDS and IPV, but also their intersection:
- Most women living with HIV had experienced IPV
- Among women living with HIV/AIDS, trauma, abuse and violence are associated with less use of antiretroviral medication, decreased medication adherence, and increased risk of death
- HIV infection may trigger or augment physical violence, particularly against women
