Sero Worship

Robert Brandon Sandor’s claim in your feature story “Status Seekers” (by Lucile Scott, February/March 2007) that “serosorting works 100% of the time” in preventing HIV transmission is just wrong. Serosorting—the practice of having sex only with partners who share your HIV status— is no means of prevention. Instead, it’s a means of eliminating the positive population from the general dating pool.

The suggestion that sex be limited to same-status couples is tantamount to asking African Americans to sit at the back of the bus. Prevention campaigns should focus instead on knowing one’s own status.

The Beat Goes On

I was most impressed with Kenyon Farrow’s article “In the House” (February/March 2007). It highlights the healing power that house music has had on gay black positive men who frequented the now closed, predominately African-American establishments. POZ proves that the story of AIDS is everywhere—in clubs and research labs, in the United States, Africa and in all cultures.

Gut Reaction

I am an HIV-positive female who participates in the positive belly-dancing workshop profiled in Erin Baer’s story “Saved by the Belly” (February/March 2007). [When interviewed] I focused more on the workshop’s healing energy, than on its sexual energy. Our sexuality is important, but I feel that my message was missed.

Trés Cheek

Thanks for David Thorpe’s article “Filling Station” (February/March 2007) about lipoatrophy treatment. I too had medical-grade silicone injections like Peter Staley, the story’s subject, and I love the results. After four treatments, my face looks like it did before my meds sucked the fat out. My last treatment was 18 months ago, and there has been no change!
