How I deal with my problems

I can get by even if I have no money. It matters, but it’s not everything. I am used to problems because I’ve had enough of them already and I’ve been at my lowest. I can endure a single day without food because I know how it feels to have no food to eat for almost a week. I can sleep in any house without complaint because I’ve experienced sleeping in the streets. I can go out without having to worry about what brand my clothes are because I only had one uniform in college that I bare

Trump doesn't care about HIV. We're outta here.

To read the complete article by Scott A. Schoettes, visit Newsweek, here. Five of my colleagues and I resigned this week from the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA). As advocates for people living with HIV, we have dedicated our lives to combating this disease and no longer feel we can do so effectively within the confines of an advisory body to a president who simply does not care. The Trump Administration has no strategy to address the on-going HIV/AIDS epidemic, seeks z

Rob Olver interviews Edwin J. Bernard, Global Co-ordinator of the HIV Justice Network at "Rethinking Justice 2017 Symposium on HIV, Law and Human Rights

Criminalization of HIV non-disclosure: is the tide turning?

One of the things that made the “Rethinking Justice: 2017 Symposium on HIV, Law and Human Rights” a “must-attend” for me was the presence of Edwin J. Bernard, Global Co-ordinator of the HIV Justice Network and foremost expert on HIV criminalization worldwide. PositiveLite.com had interviewed Edwin before and published him as well, but that was all the way back in 2012 and 2016 so I attended the symposium hoping for the chance of an interview. I wasn’t disappointed. Edwin proved very

HALCO's Ryan Peck:"The fact is that rights, especially for marginalized communities, are constantly under attack."

The intersection between clinic law and health: responding to issues faced by people with HIV

Note: This speech was presented by Ryan Peck, Executive Director of the HIV & AIDS Legal Clinic Ontario (HALCO) upon accepting the Legal Aid Ontario 2016 Sidney B. Linden Award. Before focusing on what we at HALCO humbly refer to as holistic and revolutionary (or at least incremental reformist) lawyering, as well as on legal injustices facing people with HIV, I pay tribute to the countless who are no longer with us. HALCO was founded in a dark time. Death was an everyday experience and p

Mark S. King: on the racist LGBT response to #NoJusticeNoPride

Those offended by #NoJusticeNoPride should learn LGBT history.

(Photo: Dylan Comstock) Hell hath no fury like a privileged white gay man who has waited too long for the next pride parade contingent to sashay by. When #NoJusticeNoPride blocked the DC Pride parade route on June 10, causing an hour delay to an already epic three-hour parade, you could hear the ice cubes impatiently rattling in Bloody Mary glasses for blocks. Revelers at three locations on the route were forced to co

Chatty CATIE: What is the one thing you wish you had known when you were first diagnosed with HIV?

BRITTANY CAMERON, 31 Peterborough, Ontario People living with HIV engagement worker, PARN Diagnosed with HIV: 2006, at 36 weeks pregnant I wish I had known that it would be OK. That I wasn’t the first HIV-positive woman to give birth, and I wouldn’t be the last. That HIV-positive women can and do have HIV-negative babies. That one day, advocating for women with HIV to have babies would become a passion of mine and I would inspire other positive women to have babies of their own. I

Swiss Grindr survey finds 50% want to use PrEP in the next six months

A survey of Swiss gay men and men who have sex with men recruited through the Grindr networking app has found that while only 4.3% had taken HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), 50% would consider taking it within the next six months and 79% would either take it some time in the future or want to learn more about it. The survey was a brief one both in terms of its appearance online (from 5 to 24 January this year) and in terms of its length (only ten questions taking, it was estimated,

From CATIE Blog, Nicholas Caivano and Sandra Ka Hon Chu give their take on the legal ramifications of Undetectable = Untransmittable (U = U).

U=U and the overly-broad criminalization of HIV nondisclosure

People living with HIV in Canada have been charged with some of the most serious offences in the Criminal Code, even in cases of consensual sex where there was negligible or no risk of HIV transmission, no actual transmission and no intent to transmit. The Undetectable=Untransmittable (“U=U”) campaign is based on scientific research, including the ground-breaking PARTNER study, establishing that when a person living with HIV on treatment maintains an undetectable viral load for at least
