People who are HIV positive have had a long history of playing the HIV ‘waiting game'

People who are HIV positive have had a long history of playing the HIV ‘waiting game’ When HIV was first discovered, we all waited for treatment.  We waited for medications, anything that would help stop the virus from killing us. We waited for doctors who were willing to see us; in the beginning very few were. Some of us waited for death; wanting it to come quickly and rid us of our pain. We waited for our government to respond to the crisis; we waited a long time. We waited for co

Jade, who stars in her new show at Crews & Tangos, Jaded, which can be caught every Saturday night from 7 until 9.

This week, while PositiveLite.com's one-man show goes to Vienna, I've decided that (strange referring oneself in first and third person) that it's a moment to go lite, and do a little shameless promotion of one of DJ Relentless alter ego Jade Elektra. Jade, who stars in her new show at Crews & Tangos, Jaded, which can be caught every Saturday night from 7 until 9. I personally say that it is a great show that moves along quickly, this can be a rare feat in Toronto. Many of Jade's guests

We broke the bed and then we slept on it. A perfect metaphor for our brief relationship. "Ryan" was a tall, handsome, red headed emergency room nurse who had transferred from the Toronto Hospital to the Ottawa General in hopes of a fresh start, and I quickly looked to him to be my new beginning. On account of his huge penis, and sexy fire crotch, I was willing to over look his general immaturity till New Years, when his coked out behavior embarrassed me in front of my friends, earning Rya

After months of speculation, it appears Wonder Woman writer Gail Simone may have finally tipped her hand and answered the prayers of her lonely, reborn hero Achilles and gifted him a companion in the form of handsome real estate agent Patrick Cleese (aka Patroclus!)

On paper, the Canadian AIDS Society's Skill Building Symposium in Montreal was meant to better the work of those present. In reality, it was co-opted by pharmaceutical companies and academics, it marginalized the HIV+ youth present, it embarrassingly misstepped by inviting the Federal Minister of Health and it included a pro-criminalization poster by Hamilton Public Health Services. Disgusting. By day two I had mentally checked out, and instead turned to pizza, boozes, Grinder, and pot to ge

Model Behaviour

Being a model is frigg'n hard! After four location changes, over four hundred photos taken, and two and a half hours of smiling, my cheeks were spasming and my self confidence was rapidly deflating.

Being a model is fuckin' hard! After four location changes, over four hundred photos taken, and two and a half hours of smiling, my cheeks were spasming and my self confidence was rapidly deflating. In between shots I'd sneak a peak at the photographers crotch. I'd seen his cock on display within his own photographs, being sucked on by models. His dick was HUGE! In person, his package was mouth watering and hard to look away from. "Michael, look into the camera please" he'd repeat again. Dras

For the last two weekends I've been helping my Mother in her garden. Last week, after having cut the lawn, my Mother handed over a pair of workman's gloves and asked me to help pull weeds and dried leaves from the flower beds in the backyard. Sliding my hand into the left glove I noticed that one of the fingers in the gloves felt stiff, like the seem was extra thick. I didn't think much of it, and for HALF AN HOUR I worked in the garden till finally I stopped, realisin

My friend Rick said buying a cupcake stand was 'indulgent' and 'wasteful'. He was convinced I would never use it. Last night I proved him wrong by cooking up a batch of Duncan Hines cupcakes with vanila icing and sprinkles on top. Don't they look delicious!?
