Meth and HIV
During this episode of POZIAM RADIO, we will be discussing Meth and HIV/AIDS. Our friends from Tweaker.org will be joining us for the first part of the show to talk about Meth and how it affects our bodies,our sex and our overall lives. Tweaker.org was created because a lot of people make some potentially dangerous choices while we're high on speed. Some of these choices are about the sex we have and our sexual health. With the astonishing rise in new infections in the gay community due to meth use, we felt it was important to dedicate a show to the subject.
The second half of the show we will be joined by Greg Bersani. Greg was diagnosed about a year ago HIV+ and will be courageously sharing his personal story and his journey of Meth, Recovery and HIV.

Robert H. Bruce -- The Beautiful Thorn
Robert H. Bruce, a kid from the streets of North Philly, as a child, poor, cocky and full of anger, rage and sadness. Triumphant over the shame of his past; growing into a responsible man; openly gay; father and human being. Robert has never hidden from harsh realities; he has always taken from his past heartaches- lessons learned to build his life to what it is today-full of love, understanding and forgiveness.
The Beautiful Thorn is a memoir based on actual events and the coming of age of a young boy mixed up and thrown into a life of uncertainty, filled with sexual, mental and physical abuse. Showing that the struggles of a child should not define who a person is and based on my life experiences it needs to be known that anyone can survive and triumph over any circumstances thrown their way. Straightforward, unvarnished, honest style, poetic and poignant in turns. Robert H. Bruce does not shrink from harsh truths. Unique storyline, informative and hits hard in inner, interpersonal and universal conflicts. Purchase The Beautiful Thorn.

The Positive Pitch
I describe myself as a "positive person with purpose." My goal is to help people living with HIV/AIDS discover similarities in each other ... and form friendships. I want to ease the shock of a diagnosis and remind people that our dreams are not infected. I am also an HIV/AIDS cyber-activist, radio show host, blogger and social network guru.
