    in Health

    CROI, statistics, TasP, PrEP ... what does all of this mean? In this week's episode, we break down the language of research and focus on what it means for people living or at risk for HIV. It can be a challenge to dissect and translate the research language into something that's useful to everyday life, and to help us, we have J. Welsey Thompson, MHS, PA-C, AAHIVS, DFAAPA. He has practiced medicine for over 28 years and is in practice at Rosedale Infectious Disease in the greater Charlotte region of the Carolinas. He has co-investigated in over 60 clinical trials for new medications to treat HIV. He lectures locally, statewide, and nationally to medical conferences, to patient groups, and provider groups.  He serves as guest lecturer and adjunct professor at Davidson University, Duke University, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Central Piedmont Community College, Wake Forest University and Wingate University.

    What's Happening in Indiana, and How Can You Help?

    in LGBT

    With the passage of a new Religious Freedom Restoration Act in Indiana, it is now legal for businesses to discriminate against someone on the basis of sexual orientation. Since the announcement of the passing of the bill, many activsits have had differing views on how to address the issue. In this episode, we will go over the events in Indiana in the past few days, and speak to Indiana natives about how the community can best come together and help our LGBT brothers and sisters who live in Indiana. 


    19 States have 'religious freedom' laws like Indiana however Indiana is the only one being boycotted. Click here to see a map of the states where these laws are in place currently.

    CURE (HIV Viral Remission) Commentary

    in LGBT

    We have all seen the reports flying across social media about a new "cure" for HIV. As a person living with HIV and as an activist, these reports drive me crazy since they are sensationalized stories used for click-bait. Media outlets know that using a keyword such as "cure" will increase the amount of traffic to there sight and so forth. I for one think that we need to remove the word "cure" from our vocabulary completely. The current state of HIV research has shown that the more we learn about HIV, the more we learn that we do not know..


    Everyone wants a "cure" however what is the current state of effrots in the United States to pressure law makers, big pharma and so on to actually push even further into "cure" research? When was the last time that you went to a rally for an "HIV Cure"?


    It is my opinion that each one of us must hold the media and each other accountable for recklessly throwing the c-word around. Every time the word "cure" is used, it relays that this eipdemic is over. This epidemic will not be over until we have zero new-infection. This epidemic will not be over until we have zero mother-to-child transmission (a goal that we are close to reaching).

    Gay Men, Substance Use and HIV

    in LGBT

    Gay men use alcohol and other drugs at a disproportionately higher rate than the rest of the population. Gay men use for a variety of reasons from coping with mental health issues to just seeking fun. However, at the intersection of mental illness is often a high risk for HIV infection. This week, we'll be discussing the many reasons gay men use substances. We'll also talk to some men who have a history of substance use and have since started on the road to recovery.

    How Is HIV Depicted in the Media?

    in LGBT

    HIV in Prime Time


    We all wish that more stories about HIV were featured in the media. With 1.2 million people in the US living with HIV, it's fair to say that there should be more HIV-positive characters represented on TV. But, when we do hear stories about HIV, are we always happy with them? With two recent high-profile television shows – HBO's Looking and ABC's How to Get Away With Murder – featuring HIV-positive gay characters, now's the time to ask: "How should HIV be represented on TV?" This week, we discuss media representations of HIV, how they've grown over time, and where we wish they could go.

    Our Viral Lives: Young Activists Discuss HIV/AIDS

    in LGBT

    Unfortunately, some people believe that HIV/AIDS is over. Many of us know better. While the leaders of the early movement are very visibile to some -- names like Peter Staley and Mark Harrington come to mind -- some are unsure about who will be leading the movement of tomorrow. More importantly, what will the HIV/AIDS epidemic look like in the future? Today, we will speak with four young activists who recently presented at New York City's LGBT Center about their work as young HIV/AIDS activists. We will talk with Kyle Bella, the founder of Our Viral Lives, a digital narrative project, Martez Smith, an HIV+ black public health student, Kia Labeija an artist and photographer and a part of New York City's famed House of Labeija and Charlie Ferrusi, an MPH student who hopes to enter the world of government work and make advocacy for underrepresented populations his focus.
