World AIDS DAY!!!

Today, I'm going to use this blog to say something meaningful. I'm not going to give your stats or tell you some shocking story about someone's risky behavior (I've already done both). I just want to say Go out and get tested (Take a friend or two with you)!

Know your status for yourself and others. Many people are apart of organizations (fraternities, community groups, ethnic groups, etc.) please make sure they are providing an outlet for this issue to be discussed.

We are having a forum tonight, which features a HIV + single mother. I think this is going to be so powerful. We are also giving away free food (all college students go for that) during the day to lure college students into making a pledge to get tested or to get tested (we have a place provided). Please get involved! You will be surprise at what people our age don't know about sex.

Very good post...

And you'd be surprised what people who are finished with college don't know about sex either... or who have misconceptions about what "educated" people do/don't do regarding safe sex.

Testing is so important. I remember when I was single I used to be such an advocate of regular "check ups." It's something that once you do it the fear of knowing subsides and becomes a sense of peace. I will say there is nothing like waiting for that first result. After that though you start to want to know, and not only that but you make better decisions with your genitals...

Then you get older and fall in love like me and you are glad that you took care of your shit, and glad you don't have to play the waiting or dating game.

Ppl really dont think it could happen to them. I use to think that way until one of my closest friends at 21 found out he was HIV positive. Think before you act and please wrap it up. If you havent been tested do so. You never know. It could happen to you. Very nice post.
