Have yourself a Zombie Little Christmas

In which Bob Leahy presents a video which instructs you how to keep those pesky zombies out of your home this holiday season

I’m not sure why, but posts about zombies have always been popular here on PositiveLite.com. Brian covered Toronto ‘s Zombie Film Festival earlier this year, and even interviewed a few zombies themselves. I covered the huge Toronto Zombie Walk in the Fall and was bowled over. Be warned: zombies’ eternal quest for brains doesn’t stop at yuletime. Nor does David Hasselhof’s quest for the same thing either, but that’s another story.) So to help you though the holiday season while keep

Final "Confessions of a Scooter: Love Story, Oprah, and saying good-bye

published: December, 23, 2010 Written by // Brian Finch - Founder Categories // Brian Finch

It is a sad day today. As if it were bad enough with Oprah’s repeat broadcast of the cast reunion for the 70s movie “Love Story.

It is a sad day today. As if it were bad enough with Oprah’s repeat broadcast of the cast reunion for the 70s movie “Love Story.” Little did I know when I first saw this flick that I’d be immersed in a sea of sick and dying people of the 80s. Even the new living Poinsettia wasn't enough for this. Just because anything Christmas related seems to come to my apartment to die (keep my fingers crossed on these ones) and my little Hildy Chihuahua is tramautized by my neighbourr's Santa that

In which Bob Leahy uses xtranormal software to get to know the REAL Brian Finch, or is it his robotic double?

Brian Finch as you’ve never seen him before

Brian Finch is a pretty well know figure in the blogosphere, first through Acid Reflux, then a stint with the HIVstigma.com campaign and now as the founder, editor and contributor to PositiveLite.com. But you’ve never seen – or heard - him quite like this. He's positively robotic. Truth is I came across xtranormal text-to-movie software quite by chance. Intrigued by a little HIV prevention flick I posted here earlier, I followed it to its source. Turns out that making a little animated thr

Do scare tactics work? NYC Health PSA “It’s never just HIV…”

So how do we get the two-fold message, which are really two side of the same coin

Several gay groups in New York are calling for the pulling of this public service announcement. Given that the infection rate keeps rising in the gay population, the makers of this PSA felt they needed to bring out the realities of living with HIV, which are not all pretty. It really is a fine line with these kinds of social marketing campaigns. What is a social marketing campaign? I get asked this quite a bit. It seems like those in the know assume that everyone knows this terminology. These

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

One Hour And Counting: HIV criminalization & controversy

My Positivelite.com editor Brian Finch tipped me off that there was interest from 3rd parties in reproducing a previous blog post of mine entitled ‘Are We All Criminals’

My Positivelite.com editor Brian Finch tipped me off that there was interest from 3rd parties in reproducing a previous blog post of mine entitled ‘Are We All Criminals’ about my experiences with HIV-criminalization and disclosure. Shortly thereafter, I was contacted directly by Matt Mills, an editor of Xtra and a fierce supporter of ending HIV-Criminalization. Matt found the piece ‘courageous’ and valued its potential for creating an honest dialogue around the complexities of HIV-crim

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

The Coles Notes: Higher AIDS and non-AIDS Rates With Uncontrolled HIV Despite CD4s Over 350

Tenth International Congress on Drug Therapy in HIV Infection, November 7-11, 2010

To recap, at Vienna 2010, there were controversial guidelines suggesting starting treatment when T4 cells (CD4) drop below 350, as well as thinking as high as 500. This has peaked my interest to follow any research coming out on the topic. The Coles Notes: Even with a T4 count above 350, damage is still being down to the immune system when there is a viral load* above 10,000, suggesting to me that the T4 count may not be the measure on when to start treatment if we keep seeing these kinds of s
