PositiveLite.com likes a brave and touching new video depicting how we in the LGBT community love, lose and support each other in the face of crystal meth addiction and recovery.

Falling

We at PositiveLite.com like this one a lot. Rather than editorialize, here’s what YouTube says  . .             Falling, the third artistic and educational short in this series, created by Impulse Group (www.impulsegrp.org) and The Advisorie (www.advisorie.com), depicts how, in the gay community, we can both fall in love and fall apart. According to recent studies, self-reported rates of methamphetamine use in Los Angeles by gay men have reached levels as high as 53%, and have not f

Here’s a winning YouTube video from a likeable young Vlogger who cites rising HIV rates in making the case for condom use in gay men

Wear a fucking condom!!!!

Going viral (?) Says the Huffington Post “When vlogger J. Merridew learned that HIV rates are on the rise among gay men, he felt compelled to address to issue using his YouTube account. "I had no clue that HIV/AIDS has been on the rise in the gay community for the past few years," he states in the video's description. "I thought it was decreasing over time. This is our community! Let's get our act together!"” In a climate where condom use is on the decline and where the views of bareback

Bob Leahy talks about a project called Positive Quitting involving PositiveLite.com and the OHTN to put smoking cessation back on the table for those who want to quit and help improve the health and wellbeing of people living with HIV

Positive Quitting

PositiveLite.com and the Ontario HIV Treatment Network (OHTN) are partnering in a project to try to reduce smoking rates in people living with HIV. I invite you to watch our new video which features a person living with HIV, a smoking cessation expert and the OHTN’s Sean Rourke talking about the project. Just why do many people living with HIV smoke? We’d like to turn to the research but there is none specific to that question, but we can listen to the people who do smoke. Or did. Quite a

Happy St Patrick’s Day

We thought we'd better acknowledge that something green is happening today.

Happy St Patrick’s Day

And because the St Patrick’s Day video below is a little lame - even though it involves guys in towels in a steam room, no less -  we’ve included a bonus video featuring the last pope and some athletic shirtless guys.  It’s also lame, but in an entirely good way. Watch the pope’s body language. More importantly, watch his eyes.  (Or watch the guys in white pants, your choice.) Then go green. Happy St Patricks Day.

Today marks the unveiling of an important collaboration between ourselves and the OHTN designed to bridge research and action, to improve the health and well-being of people living with HIV who smoke. Here Bob Leahy interviews OHTN head Sean Rourke.

The Smoking Project with Sean Rourke

Many people will know Dr. Sean Rourke, Scientific and Executive Director of the Ontario HIV Treatment Network (OHTN). He’s approachable, eloquent and clearly highly committed. You’ll get a sense of all that in the video which follows where he talks about The Smoking Project. I don’t want to paraphrase what he says, but one of the frustrations of anyone involved in the research field must be the historic difficulty of turning research in to practice. “I think the OHTN’s role is to p

Bridging the HIV Viral Divide with Friendship

Mark S King on mixed status friendships: “Lynne Rhys and I were never supposed to become friends. It was just too unlikely.”

Bridging the HIV Viral Divide with Friendship

She is a divorced woman raising a teenaged daughter, and was barely aware of a “gay community” until she stepped tentatively out of the closet in midlife. She has a quiet and soft-spoken grace. She has manners. She readily burdens the blame if it means saving your feelings. She’s one of those people who apologize when I miss a turn while driving us somewhere, as if it must have been her fault.  When she walked into an audition for a play I was directing a few years ago, she was certain

We have the video link . . . .

Elton John speaks at AIDS 2012

“Everyone deserves compassion. Everyone deserves dignity. Everyone, everyone, everyone deserves love. Why am I telling you this? Because the AIDS disease is caused by a virus, but the AIDS epidemic is not. The AIDS epidemic is fuelled by stigma, violence and indifference.” Here is the link to the video.
