This is my video from the PositiveLite.com's wandering reporter, and this time a friend to hold that camera. The result is this video:

It was nice to finally get out and make a video since it had been awhile. I'm still figuring out sound since I'm just a guy who had an idea and picked up a video camera, and is why I often refer to my work as a crackhouse production as we are not professionals. But hey, this time I had an actually camera man, so thank you Jeff. Personally I was very moved by the young girl, you have to watch to see.  A big thank you to George Smitherman, Glen Murray, and all of those who were so willing t

Happy Anniversary Positive Youth Outreach: HIV Youth services

Last Thursday, September 16th, was Positive Youth Outreach as the AIDS Committee of Toronto. Being a graduate of PYO from my days of when I first came to Toronto, I thought it would be nice to get a few words from one of PYO's coordinators Angel Parks. As of late there have been a couple studies coming up about rising rates of infection amongst younger gay men (but not let's forget there is a significant seroconversion rate with older gay men 37 and up - I'm not completely up on my epidemiolog

I first got to know Mark through his blog on The Body (there is a link to it at the end of the post). When launching this site we began chatting on Facebook, and thought he was the perfect person with which to start off the PositiveLite.com interviews. Mark has been doing what I've been aspiring to do for quite some time, and that is use multi-media (i.e. video, writing, images) in a blog format covering all sorts of great topics, and with his flare for writing and wit. Mark's life story

I'm reposting as to be able to publish links on Facebook. June 14th, at the Coutyard Marriot, the Canadian Treatment Action Council held a presentation and panel discussion on the latest litterature review and analysis on liver transplants for those who are either HIV or Hep B/C positive, or both. For those who may not know, if one is HIV + they are not able to get a transplant in Canada, nor will any of the provinces pay to have it done in the states. This is the first in an ongoing series to

Setting forth on my quest to find out the latest and greatest from HIV medical establishment on treatment guidelines, I couldn’t think of a better person to speak to than Melanie Thompson, the chair of the AIDS Research Consortium of Atlanta and chair of the International AIDS Society-USA Antiretroviral Therapy Guidelines Panel, who took part in my lunch session on when to start therapy, an the IAS guidelines. After the panel discussion, Melanie was kind enough, foot in cast, to take a few m

I met up with Jill Battson for a quick chat about her co-collaboration of Dark Reqiuem Star, an oratorio that will be making its world premiere for the opening of the Toronto Arts festival, Luminato.

I met up with Jill Battson for a quick chat about her co-collaboration of Dark Reqiuem Star, an oratorio that will be making its world premiere for the opening of the Toronto Arts festival, Luminato. This particular shoot seemed to be one where none of what had been envisioned had worked, from the weather, to the background noise drowning out our voices, to the second camera's recording ending up being corrupted, and on it goes. Nonetheless, I did squeak a video out, Hildy the Chihuahua got
