Amy Justice discusses the Veterans Aging Cohort Study @ the OHTN Research 2010 conference

Welcome to a new collaboration between the Ontario HIV Treatment Network and PositiveLite.com. During last fall's OHTN Research Conference 2010, the OHTN and PositiveLite.com began working on the idea of presenting video snapshots of some of the research presented. In this pilot project our goals are to provide a very quick overview of the researcher's work. Additionally, we take a look at some of the community-based research, an important area of research that touches the lives of HIV+

Getting Engaged? Part I

published: March, 11, 2011 Categories // Opinion Pieces, Bob Leahy - Publisher

Bob Leahy isn’t contemplating marriage but rather talking about engaging the HIV community. Like marriage it can be a life-long struggle.

Getting Engaged? Part I

I feel a bit rejected. Once again I’m denied a scholarship to a major HIV conference. This time it’s the upcoming CAHR (Canadian Association for HIV Research) conference in Toronto. The organisers describe it as “the main venue for HIV researchers in this country to present the results of their work and engage in vibrant knowledge exchange activities with their peers as well as with investigators in other disciplines and with the HIV/AIDS community”. (My underline). I guess it’s

A DIGITAL CHRISTMAS

In which Bob Leahy chuckles at the latest YouTube gone viral (without the load) and muses on the digital year that was 2010.

A DIGITAL CHRISTMAS

“We need to talk” Mary emails Joseph.“I’m pregnant”.  They do indeed, or at least tweet. You’ve probably seen this video already, the one where the story of the nativity is recounted using a whole bunch of social networking sites (Jeez, how come PositiveLite.com was left out?) But if you haven’t seen it, it’s below. It made me laugh a lot. It’s also very timely. For me, 2010 was definitely the year of all things digital. I was an early adopter of blogging, way back when

Turning 1 year old on World AIDS Day 2010

published: November, 30, 2010 Written by // Brian Finch - Founder Categories // Events, Brian Finch

Where else can you go to find get to know the top advisor for the American National AIDS Strategy to adventures at your local Zombie walk, or one of the first reviews of Priscilla Queen of the Desert?

I’ve been thinking about what I’d write for a date marked by two occasions. The first is “World AIDS Day” and the second, the one-year anniversary of PositiveLite.com. The vision was to be able to offer an alternative to the present online landscape of websites dedicated to the subject of HIV. I wanted a combination of content that ranged from complete entertainment and fluff to more serious topical subjects. The goal and sometimes the challenge is to offer concise information that is

In which Bob Leahy gives a Hi-5 to CATIE and to the OHTN for their collaborations with the little site that could.

OHTN and CATIE give PositiveLite.com the nod

I can’t think of much better news to kick off World AIDS Week than to hear that CATIE is now collaborating with PositiveLite in a similar fashion to what the OHTN announced that they would be doing earlier this month. You can read CATIE’s inaugural post here.   I'm a big fan of both these organizations. I really think this is a win-win situation. Or perhaps that should be a win-win-win situation, as three parties are involved. For PositiveLite it means additional quality content

Making community-based research accessible: The OHTN 2010 Research Conference,

published: November, 17, 2010 Written by // Brian Finch - Founder Categories // Brian Finch

The Ontario HIV Treatment Network's conference brought out the Sally Field in me, as well as being a great experience

In photo, Yyves Calmette from Sydney ACON, who flew in from Australia for two days for the conference, and then left later yesterday afer I spoke with him. The Ontario HIV Treatment Network’s research conference is over and I’m beat. As I’ve previously written, PositiveLite.com, i.e. me, and the OHTN collaborated to produce about a dozen short web interviews to be hosted here and potentially on the OHTN site. The goal is to communicate in an accessible way what is going on with community

Research on gay men that gives new meaning to the term Oral Abstracts; is it for real?

published: November, 08, 2010 Written by // Bob Leahy - Publisher Categories // Opinion Pieces, Bob Leahy - Publisher

In which Bob Leahy looks at an example of questionable research concerning the phenomenon of gay men giving oral sex to straight guys and says “Whaaaat?”

Research on gay men that gives new meaning to the term Oral Abstracts; is it for real?

First the background. This research study was floating around the internet last week. It’s a piece of research which purportedly investigates the impact on heterosexual males who receive daily oral sex from gay men.  In plain terms, it suggests there's a link between said regular blowjobs and lowering the risk of the recipients for developing some nasty things like prostate and testicular cancer. Specifically, straight men who lay back and enjoy are less likely to develop those nasty-so
