Re: HIV Support Group in Greensboro

I have to agree, with most everyone wanting to keep a lid on to a certain degree regarding disclosure, I find around this city it's kept very hush hush. The organization we have here is a drop-in resource center, which is good, but it has such short hours one cannot get to it even for assistance. Monday to Friday 8-5 and closed from 12-1, how can anyone access that! What's the point? I would like to see an evening drop in atleast once a week or once a month, just for that get to chat awhile feeling.

It's funny because the Gay Pride center here is open most evenings, have a weekly pot-luck dinner, regular drop in meetings in the evening ... the list goes on! You mention HIV there though, to have an HIV night or something and it goes silent, like you hear a pin drop.

Stigma maybe, fear probably ... it's funny because the Walk for Life in September had a great turn-out, very open to the public, no stigma or anything ... then comes setting up a group and there's an echo in the room.

Good luck with the Greensboro group, please give details on successes with any of the organisations so that maybe the rest of us can start to fashion things in our communities and get more people talking!

anotherday ... in paradise!
daily ponder ... be the reason someone smiles today!
