Damn…moving story. I am a child of the Aids epidemic crisis. A lot of my friends succumbed to the disease at the time when there were no retro viral drugs. Gay men covered up like it was no body’s business then. 20 years later it is as if we forgot that the disease exist and we are widely abandoning all safe sex methods for the opportunity to have what is called ‘real sex’. Well I guess I am old school and if its one ‘fad’ I will not be joining is this one- the bare back generation. The generation that has more cases of HIV per black male than any other race.Call me old fashioned- that is alright. Sex without protection is an unhealthy exercise…with the so called devoted partner or not.

I still havent found my worth. When and how? Only I can find the answer to that question. the sad part is that I do not know how. I am 25 years old, and I just wish I can accept my life the way it is.

i want to thank everyone for the comments. As an additional part to the blog, me and my mother came to a place where we both understand what it means to be a HIV gay black male and we're both stronger in our relationship for it.

The way you're perceive and bring down your experience is so touching and respectable. With you with all my heart and thank you for taking these themes up.

Lack of self-esteem is a true demon--a demon which drives so many of my younger black brethren to live life on the edge. So much has happened to my young black brethren and those of us who have aged out of innocence by virtue of the revelation of our HIV+ status. Mr. Guess, I'm doing some research on Gay Men of African Descent. I am sure that the collective experiences of black, gay brethren, guide you as the Program Manager of Gay Men of African Descent.

Do it now that you're thinking of it- remember: "yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift - that's why it's called the PRESENT!
