Hi everyone, A new member of HW, and a 2 decade trained HIV Health Advocate - I hoped to share this website with newly diagnosed HIV+ clients, but I noticed NO articles in the list about the two largest groups of people with HIV in the US - Black Americans and Gay male Americans. HIV is caused by decisions in social settings - black and gay social settings mostly. why have I seen no discussion of the needs of leadership or in coverage of social issues related to Afro-American or gay-male-American issues? Hope to soon - this will make your website relevant to people with HIV. I see articles about Women and HIV. I see women and children with HIV - how about addressing the two most infected social groups. Thanks for addressing unintended racism and homophobia in your coverage!! Thanks!

I think you made a mistake. This is the Alzheimer's Disease forum.

Yes, wrong forum -- but I did check the AIDS forum and if you search around, you can find a page that has many link to articles relating to AIDS, and one in particular about being and gay and minority. I think HW tries to reach out to as many people they can. Remember that the threads you see are by actual people who have issues. Please check the AIDS forum out again -- and I hope that you find what you are looking for. And welcome!

And since this is a peer-support site, our content is closely related to those who use the site. I think everyone would welcome posting of this sort on the HIV/AIDS forum, so if you have information or links to post that would be helpful to others and perhaps stimulate a new conversation.
