Looking Forward to the Next 22!
By Lynda Arnold
May 6, 2015

Last month I celebrated twenty-two years since the day I found out I was HIV positive. My long-term memory is so shot but I do remember a lot of things about that day. It's a date that never goes unmarked by me. It was a cold, rainy afternoon in Lancaster, PA. I was scheduled to work the evening shift at Community Hospital in the ICU as usual. The Employee Health Department had called me the day before and told me to stop by and get my test results from the needle stick injury I had received approximately six months earlier, on Sept 9, 1992.

A Healing Circle of Men: North Florida Manreach 2015
By David Fawcett Ph.D., L.C.S.W.
May 1, 2015

The ball of string came flying through the air toward me. I caught it awkwardly, stated my name, said something about myself and then held on to my section of twine while tossing it to someone else across the room. Thirty-five men, many strangers to each other, sat around the circle at this weekend retreat in the woods. The recipient of my toss announced his name and gripped the string before throwing it back across the circle. Gradually a web of twine formed to connect all thirty-five men. It was a beautifully intricate pattern of geometric shapes that graphically exhibited the interconnectedness of the men who came together for this gathering.

AHF Reinstates Advocacy Funding and They Totally Mean It This Time
By Mark S. King
April 21, 2015

AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) has quietly reinstated funding to a Louisiana AIDS advocacy event, two weeks after pulling their support because one of its organizers is involved in a whistleblower lawsuit against AHF. And they really mean it this time -- and would prefer that we believe the withdrawal of support never happened.
