Domestic Violence and HIV/AIDS intersect and most people find that surprising. Abusers are usually promiscuous and move around from one relationship to another. Sometimes having multiple relationships.
How does this play into how the STATUS of HIV/AIDS become a part of the conversation?
It is very important to know where you STAND.
World AIDS Day, observed on December 1 every year, is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV, and commemorate people who have died. If you understand how HIV is transmitted, how it can be prevented, and the reality of living wih HIV today, you can use this knowledg to take care of your health and the health of others. You will also help ensure that everyone living with HIV is treated fairly, and with respect and understanding.
November's show will feature the book, One Family's AIDS, by host, J'son M. Lee. One Family’s AIDS is the story of Gene Alexander McCoy - a young, educated African-American man who finds himself in a race for time to make peace with his family and God upon being diagnosed with HIV. The story, told from four different perspectives, chronicles Gene's life as he confronts such issues as HIV/AIDS, family, abandonment and homophobia. With the help of his over-bearing mother, a nurturing grandmother, and an uncle who doesn't feel comfortable talking about Gene's sexuality or disease, we learn the complexities of love and relationships, the damaging results of fear and shame, and how the relentless quest for the truth ultimately leads us back to each other.
Our guest host will be Levon Putney, News Anchor/Reporter at WCBS 880 News.

#MyRealTalkRadio #WrapItUp HIV/AIDS AWARENESS Special!
There are approximately 1.1 million people living with HIV in the U.S.
It is estimated that almost one-fifth (18.1 %) of those people don’t know they are infected.
Since the beginning of the AIDS pandemic, 1.7 million Americans have been infected with HIV and more than 650,000 have died of AIDS.
An estimated 50,000 new HIV infections occur in the U.S. each year.
In 2011, more than 20% of people diagnosed with HIV in the U.S. were women.
The vast majority of newly diagnosed HIV-positive women contracted the virus through heterosexual sex.
In 2010, gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM) accounted for 78% of new HIV infections among men and 63% of all new infections although they comprise only 4% of the U.S. male population.
African Americans accounted for 47% of new HIV infections diagnosed in 2011, although they comprise only 14% of the population.
The rate of new HIV infections among black women in 2010 was 20 times that of white women and nearly five times that of Hispanic women.
In 2010, 31% of all new infections occurred among people aged 25–34, followed by individuals aged 13–24 at 26%.

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
HIV N AIDS INFECTED AND AFFECTED FAMILIES
The church must see that the story of AIDS is not about epidemiology, economics, or statistics. Rather it is the story of pain, anguish, fear, and neglect.
Counseling is the second area of opportunity for the church to work with those infected with the HIV virus and AIDS. They and their families are in serious need.
Just as the entertainment industry often recognizes ensemble casts, plays, and movies that are, collectively, greater than the sum of any individual performance, Desert AIDS Project honored a few remarkable films - and some fabulous individuals - at the February 8th, 2014, 20th Annual Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards, including And the Band Played On, Boys on the Side, Philadelphia, andd How to Survive a Plague.
Veteran Entertainment Reporter and Actor Nicholas Snow, himself a Desert AIDS Project client, and guest co-host Kristin Johnson, bring you the the most comprehensive coverage of the event available online.
