After Meth, I'm Still the Boss
By Danny Pintauro
January 15, 2016

One of the things I've been doing a lot of recently is reading emails from supporters around the world. I've heard tragic stories of loss and love, courageous stories of survival and encouraging stories of hope and happiness. While I've heard from all types of people, the majority are from men and women living with HIV. We are a community who've been through something life altering and that brings you closer together even from thousands of miles apart.

By Mark S. King
January 13, 2016

Dr. Oz has a very strange verbal compulsion. He can't stop making lame metaphors.

When taking an early morning jog with Charlie Sheen, in the first of their two-part interview for The Dr. Oz Show, the doctor sees metaphors everywhere. "You have to look down so you don't see how steep the hill is," he says as they putter upwards. "It's sort of like life, isn't it?"

The Activist
By Danny Pintauro
January 11, 2016

I can't pretend to call myself an activist ... yet.

For the past fifteen years, I would say I was one step above "neutral" when it comes to "activism" -- especially when it comes to issues with the LGBTQ community. For many of those years, I was too lost in my life crises (note the plural) to spend much time worrying about the "greater good."

By Nelson Vergel
January 8, 2016

In the United States, the rate for anal cancer in the general population is 1 case per 100,000 people; among HIV-negative men who have sex with men the rate increases to 35 cases per 100,000 people.

For HIV-positive gay and bisexual men, the rate is estimated to be between 75 to 115 cases per 100,000 people. It seems to affect those of us who have lived longer with HIV, have had detectable HIV viral load for a few years, have had anal warts (debatable) and/or had lower CD4 cells in our HIV infection.

Beyond the Berlin Patient: How Researchers Are Now Trying to Cure More HIV-Positive People (Video)
By Nelson Vergel
January 5, 2016

We are constantly reading headlines about the latest HIV cure. After years of being exposed to these inflamed news reports, we may get desensitized to the fact that there is actually progress being made in that field. Ever since Timothy Brown was proven to be cured, the search for a cure for HIV that is accessible worldwide has intensified. There is more funding now as different research groups compete to get there first. But we have had set backs that have taught us important lessons.
