CPPN marches on

It’s been a good few months for Canadian Positive People Network (CPPN) / Reseau Canadien Des Personnes Seropositives (RCPS) . Formed just this past summer as a response to the lack of a community-based voice for people living with HIV across Canada, It seems to be everywhere. Its members were active in securing a place on the national stage at IAS 2015 in Vancouver and in helping draft a position paper on the rights of people living with HIV. Since then CPPN has issued an election call plac

The UK’s Alex Sparrowhawk finds himself a guest speaker at a major Terrence Higgins Trust fundraising dinner with Stephen Fry

All great change begins at the dinner table

It’s a Sunday evening and I’m laid across the entire sofa attempting to watch a movie but my brain is well and truly caput. Usually this would be due to a hangover from a Saturday night out but today it’s because I’m feeling really tired from a hectic, exhilarating and amazing few days.  It all started back in March when an email from Terrence Higgins Trust landed in my inbox, a few exchanges and calls later and I had agreed to take part in a very special annual event, the Terrence H

My first Pride Parade

When you come out of the closet thinking you are, maybe, one in a hundred thousand and see that its more like one in ten or less, its amazing. To attend Pride is just mind-blowing to see how many of us there are in this wonderful community. I’m not positive on what year it was that I attended my first Toronto Pride Parade but hopefully these photos will prompt someone to leave a comment to tell me. I’m thinking it was 1996 or 97?   I have written before about coming out at the age of

What have I gotten myself into?

This summer I’ve decided to embark on a life-changing adventure. In July I’ll be riding my bicycle 600 kilometers from Toronto to Montreal and raising money to support the Toronto People with AIDS Foundation.  Now in its 17th year, the annual Friends for Life Bike Rally isn’t new information to those in the HIV loop of Toronto, but it is new to me. Since I was diagnosed HIV-positive in 2013 this is the first I’ve been involved in any fundraiser of this sort. With my adventure having
