HIV/AIDS Blog Central: Perspectives From the HIV/AIDS Community


My Sister, My Sister
By Khafre Abif
March 9, 2015

The Elders know and shake your hand,
not afraid to pat you on the shoulder.
This virus, this sickness of mankind,
traditional ways of healing,
revealing your lack of fear.
Cry your tears upon Earth, our Mother.
We have wounded Her,
She is weak and cannot replenish herself.
Change, or be sick like Her.
Now bow your head and pray in their indigenous tongue.

The Beginning of the End of AIDS? You or Me?
By Rev. Andrena Ingram
March 3, 2015

How ironic that my last post in November has the slogan from the organization (Red) (one) had a little slogan that said: "The beginning of the End of AIDS starts with YOU" ... and I went on to talk about how I was gonna take a break and yadda, yadda, yadda. And how I needed to get real selfish and take a break from all the activism stuff! How ironic! ROFL!

What Christie's Place Means to Me
By Rachel Moats
February 26, 2015

Today I write this with a heavy heart.

When I was diagnosed HIV positive in March of 2013 I very quickly learned how little services there are available to HIV-positive women. The nice woman at Planned Parenthood had very little information for me but she did hand me a short list of organizations in San Diego that provide services to HIV-positive people. There was only one place on that list that catered to women, that place was Christie's Place.

Attacked on Grindr and Slut Shaming
By Justin B. Terry-Smith
February 24, 2015


I got a notification on my phone from my Grindr application so I click on it to check the message. This guy immediately started with, "Really Justin?" I then didn't understand what he was referring to, so I replied, "Really what?" He then went on to say that he was disappointed in me for having my HIV status at the bottom of my Grindr profile and that I was once his hero and etc. I just couldn't believe this. All I could do was block the immaturity out and off my phone.

Google Me: Is Blogging About HIV Keeping Me From Getting a Job?
By Brooke Davidoff
February 10, 2015

To fill a job these days, rumor has it that companies "Google" the name on the resumes they receive before even calling the resume sender. They can check your social media accounts and check up on who you are before even calling you back for an interview. For most HIV-positive people this is not a big deal; however, if this is the case there are more than three pages of links about HIV when my name is Googled.

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. He's in the Marine Corps and as we welcomed his fiancée into our lives I couldn't be more proud of both of them and it feels great to be here to celebrate that milestone in his life.

Our Transgender Teachable Moment
By Mark S. King
February 3, 2015

The lobby of the Melbourne convention center at the international AIDS conference last July was packed with scientists, community educators, and activists. I was busy wrangling interviews for my daily video blogs.

Across the room I spotted JoAnne Keatley and Laxmi Narayan Tripathi, two of the most visible transgender women in the world and experts on transgender issues. I scurried up to them for a sound bite on their thoughts about the conference.
