Ongoing Vilification Of Gay Men - The Healthy Bear

Ongoing Vilification Of Gay Men - The Healthy Bear | Gay Men's Health & News | Scoop.it
This morning I was sent this video from one of the readers… The content, while it starts vaguely sensible and sane, quickly turns to the most homophobic bullshit I have seen in a long time.
The Healthy Bear's insight:

It's unbelieveable that this vile man is given air time. If he said the same tripe but aimed at Asians or African Americans he would be arrested for hate speech.

Understanding the HIV Window Period

In this video Dr Forgan-Smith helps explain the concept of the HIV window period and why you doctor may ask you to have a second HIV test up to 90 days after a potential exposure to HIV.
The Healthy Bear's insight:

Modern HIV tests are looking for the body's reaction to HIV infection, not the virus directly. In this video I hope to explain how there can be a lag of time between exposure and a test's ability to detect HIV infection. This is called the window period.
