By Brooke Davidoff
February 10, 2015

Hanging on for the Ride
By Lynda Arnold
February 10, 2015

Well, January is almost over as I write this and it's been a crazy end to 2014 and a wild start to 2015. I've been hospitalized several times already and have had some major life changes, some good, some bad and I'm learning to roll with the punches. The end of the year saw my oldest son get engaged and we had a huge party to celebrate.

By Brooke Davidoff
January 26, 2015

My Halloween doctor appointment with Myles was a long pain in the butt. They gave me an HIV test since I did not have my medical records on me; I told them to save the money and Google me. I know those tests are expensive. I failed -- or passed -- that test again.

My Gonorrhea Nostalgia
By Mark S. King
January 13, 2015

The first time I contracted gonorrhea, which in my day was affectionately called The Clap, I was 20 years old and had just moved to West Hollywood, California. It was 1981, disco was still thumping in the bars, and the bath houses were packed. My dance card was filled.

By Mark S. King
January 13, 2015

When Mary E. Bowman stepped to the stage five years ago at SpitDat, an open mic night in Washington, D.C., she was 20 years old and terrified.
