HIV: A disease of the past?

Many gay/bi men today have become complacent about protecting themselves from HIV infection. Although there is still no cure for AIDS, why are men beginning to revert in larger numbers to unsafe sex practices that places them at risk for becoming HIV infected. The present landscape of HIV/AIDS is presenting challenges to HIV prevention efforts, including the misperception that HIV medications have transformed HIV/AIDS into a chronic, manageable disease. Also, in some segments of the gay/bi male community, the social norm of using condoms is being replaced with condomless sex as the accepted paradigm. Join us to discuss the realities of HIV infection, the benefits and downside of HIV medications, and learn how to protect yourself from becoming HIV infected.


  1. Welcome and Introduction
  2. Current HIV/AIDS statistics among men who have sex with men
  3. The realities of HIV medications
  4. Barebacking, gift giving, and bug chasing: how common is it?
