CATIE is a pretty sex-positive place (tho’, fortunately, we don’t have to endure the corny disco music). We like sex, and we like it safer. We also appreciate that sex is not everyone’s cup of tea (and we’re cool with that) . .

Waiting for a new standard of care: is time running out for aging HIVers?

In which Bob Leahy looks at what’s wrong with standards of care for older people living with HIV, what’s being done about it – and what isn't!.

Waiting for a new standard of care: is time running out for aging HIVers?

The topic of HIV and aging has received much attention of late.  But questions remain as to how much is being done to improve a health care system which some argue fails HIVers over 50. Yes, there has been a lot of talk, but how much is actually being DONE is the question of the day. My take? Not nearly enough, at least here in Canada. The situation looks a little better in the States. This week, for instance, it was announced that a study in San Francisco has been launched to f

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

CATIE: HIV and Aging: Which is it?

published: December, 08, 2010 Written by // CATIE - HIV and Hep C Info Resource Categories // CATIE, CATIE - HIV and Hep C Info Resource

CATIE’s booklet HIV and aging is for people 50 and older who are living with HIV.

(le français suit) Aging is a topic that comes up again and again here on PositiveLite—here’s an appropriately senescent posting by Bob Leahy—and for good reason: Thanks to effective therapies, people with HIV are living longer. Some researchers now think that people with HIV may live out their natural life spans. While that’s good news, it means that there are more health issues to consider. And the question “Is it HIV or is it aging?” can creep up when we’re trying to figure o

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
