He mentions them in a earlier blog.  It is odd that he is on that many

He mentions in an earlier vid that the perscription he just picked up was for Truvada and Kaletra.

Did you watch his vid on disclosing online?  ...I'm so happy that I'm partnered and don't have to deal with disclosing to hookups.....that must be so frustrating!

Fortunately he also made a video about on line disclosure when procuring cock on grindr. I've always wondered how that worked.

I couldn't believe what a-holes some people were in that video....."so and so warned me about you"...um, really!?    If you know he's poz and aren't interested that's your prerogative, but don't be a jerk about it.

Thanks for sharing this one I saw quite a few but not this one. It was interesting I was so hesitant that first night taking my meds...it just became too real I spent 4 years without them...

I remember this guy.  We had a lively debate about his disclosure video.  It says it was posted early this year, but I know it was at least one year ago, if not two.  He must have reposted it. 

I do admire that he's putting himself out there and talking about HIV. 

Modified: 

Forget what I said about the date.  I found the thread and it was January of this year.  Man, that thread seemed like a very long time ago, to me.

I'm actually quite stunned by all the positive comments his video is receiving. Nothing offensive at all, as opposed to those nasty Grindr and Message Boards comments. So good to see that.

But I do think it is tough if it all comes down to just sex. I don't disclose it if it's just for sex, I just wrap it up. I don't know if I'm right or wrong, maybe I just don't have the balls at the moment.

It is an odd situation.  I am in a long term relationship and my partner is Neg (thank God) and I posted a scruff posting clearly stating that I wanted to meet up with other POZ guys in the area to chat and hang with no sex.  The responses I have gotten from POZ guys has been great. On the other hand there are a number of assholes that have had rude things to say even though I made it clear that one I was not on there for Neg guys and Not on there for sex.  Some people are just born as ass holes.
