    ABOUT OUR GUEST

    Meet the super cool, talented, incredibly smart and gentle Sergio Ospina!! Born and raised in the heart of Miami, the offspring of immigrant parents, I learned at a young age that life could be pretty difficult. We constantly moved and could never really call any one place “home,” money ALWAYS being an issue. It was actually kinda nice. When you are forced to plug yourself into the community for resources the outcome can be pretty beautiful. There are so many generous and kind people out there willing to share their knowledge if you just listen.

    Author Connie Johnson Discusses The Lives of Women With HIV

    in Women

    Sex shouldn't be fatal, but for women living with HIV, unless they are given access to treatment, sex with an infected partner could very well be a death sentence. Author Connie Johnson, who spent some time in Kenya, got the opportunity to take a close look at the dynamics of sexually transmitted diseases, how society responds to those who have them, and whether guilt and shame prevent those who could be healed from seeking and receiving treatment.  African American women are the fastest growing population diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in the U.S., and the new cases that pop up on college campuses is alarming. We need a different kind of sexual revolution, above and beyond simply pushing condoms.  How do we address, treat, heal, and prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS, particularly among women who are reluctant to talk about it?  Connie Johnson shares her thoughts from her book "Beyond Measure."

    "The Sex, Lies & The Law: Penalizing Criminal Transmission of HIV"

    in Lifestyle

    Safe sex is a responsibility that falls on the shoulders of all parties involved. Educators, medical facilitators, parents, contraceptive manfuacturers, etc., all have an obligation to put forth some knowledge, warning, or information about the benefits of safe sex and the risks of unprotected sex. However, should a larger responsibility to practice safe sex fall on the shoulders of the individual who poses a threat to the health of others--such as in the cases such as actor Charlie Sheen, Pastor Craig Davis, and Thomas Guerra, three HIV individuals who knowingly infected others with the virus? Tonight, we discuss whether or not HIV-positive individuals who are aware of their status should be subject to criminal charges if they have unprotected sex with multiple partners without  disclosing their status, exponentially creating new HIV-positive cases.


    Tune in tonight at 10:30 PM EST by calling 347-327-9967.

    Chit Chat with B.Fly: HIV and AIDS in 2016 with Special Guest Andrea Johnson

    in Lifestyle

    Tune in as We talk about How AIDS and HIV are perceived in 2016, and if people still are even concerned about contracting it, and What the current statistics are on it, and Listen live to Andrea as she gives you her personal story, and how life is for her day to day!


    Meet Our Guest: Andrea Johnson, a Native GHETTO (Giving Help Everywhere To Those that are Oppressed) Philadelphian, is the Founder/CEO of GIRL U CAN DO IT, INC. (“GUCDII Family”) a non-profit community based organization that provides comprehensive health and awareness education and prevention services for disadvantaged youths, young adults and families. In July, 2007, I took an HIV test after I discovered my partner’s affair and learned that he had infected me with HIV. Not knowing where to turn or what to do, I was determined NOT to remain silent while other women, especially Women of Color, continued to become highly infected and affected with HIV/AIDS. Two months after learning my diagnosis I began speaking on Washington on various occasions thereafter advocating for youths, women and families. During my initial diagnosis, I was introduced to various community activist groups that fought for the rights of people living with HIV/AIDS, and became empowered and enlightened enough by them to understand that I can have an even greater impact on people by being vocal about HIV/AIDS and by helping to raise awareness in my own community and around the world.


    Long before my HIV positive diagnosis and still continuing long after my HIV positive diagnosis, I was and continues to be a community and youth advocate and activist. Presently, the GUCDII Family self funds various educational activities for the youths we serve as well as many of our older youths have gone to and graduated from college or other occupational career choices.
