    Positively Dee for discussion about HIV/AIDS

    in Social Networking

    Join us for HIV/AIDS discussion bringing awarness to the community.


    Historically, the HIV/AIDS epidemic has affected more men than women. However, if new HIV infections continue at their current rate worldwide, women with HIV may soon outnumber men with HIV.


    HIV infection impacts a growing number of women in Illinois each year. Nearly 7,000 women in Illinois are currently known to be living with HIV and/or AIDS. Many hundreds of other women are probably living with HIV even though they are unaware of their own infection.


    HIV/AIDS disproportionately impacts African-American women in Illinois and the United States. Nationally, HIV infection is the leading cause of death for African-American women between the ages of 25 and 34. In Illinois, the number of HIV cases among African-American women continues to climb. Roughly 68 percent of Illinois women living with HIV are African American, while African Americans only make up 15 percent of the Illinois population. Caucasian women account for 16 percent of Illinois women living with HIV, while the Caucasian population represents more than 73 percent of Illinois residents. Latina women represent roughly 11 percent of the HIV/AIDS cases in women, while 13 percent of the Illinois population is Latino. Roughly 4 percent of women with HIV are from Native American, Asian, Pacific Islander and other communities.


    Women in their 30s are the most likely to be living with HIV/AIDS, and almost all Illinois women living with HIV are between the ages of 20 and 50.

    Women In Solutions - An Epiphany

    in Self Help

    Welcome to Women In Solutions!  My name is Suzanne Marie and I am the host here.  For years I have wanted to help other women with whatever issues that they are having in their lives because there were and still are times in my life where I had problems and could not find solutions.  I struggled alot in the past with addiction of all kinds, sick relationships that were unhealthy and violent, running this way, running that way - never knowing who to turn to who I could trust, hitting brick walls, I believe that all of my issues have ceom from my childhood.  I believe we bring into our adulthood all the garbage that is still hanging onto us. It is time to bring about a solution now!  And, that is why I have created this radio show - just for that - for all women out there who would like to share their stories here and then working together to find solutions to help us find a better way of life - a life filled with peace, happiness some balance instead of the chaos that has surrounded so many of us in our lives.  I invited you to call in and share - you are able to remain anonymous if you so chose, this is a safe haven, a place of refreshment and upliftment!  It is hopefully a place to heal and become your true authentic self!

    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.

    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.
