What’s Your Brand of AIDS Activism?

Posted on January 2, 2014 by in Columns, Frontdesk

Frontdesk by David Waggoner January is usually the coldest month for New Yorkers. But I’m not worried about the weather coming in the first month of the new year for each issue emanates warmth and vitality. A fire kindled over twenty-three years ago, A&U is both a labor of love and a personal history of [...]

Just*in Time: December 2013

Posted on December 27, 2013 by in Columns, Just*in Time

Hey Justin, I was date raped and I had experienced what is called oral thrush. I got tested for HIV when I had thrush and the test came out negative. I think it’s a rare strain of thrush. I can’t get diagnosed with HIV, and I’m very depressed and don’t know how often to check [...]

Ruby’s Rap by Ruby Comer Ari Gold I like Ari Gold’s derrière! He must like it too. This r&b pop singer flashes his naked bod everywhere: on the streets of Manhattan, on CD covers, magazines, music videos, and even at events like Night of a Thousand Gowns, a benefit for New York’s GMHC. After my [...]

Ruby’s Rap by Ruby Comer My ol’ chum Kerry is a swell guy. We’ve known each other forever. I first laid my baby blues on him at the old U.S. Air Force base in Okinawa when I was entertaining the troops. (Yes, I belted out tunes in a former life!) When I told him I [...]

The Next Generation

Posted on December 1, 2013 by in Columns, Frontdesk

Frontdesk by David Waggoner Do you ever wonder what is missing from the commercialized holidays and all the decorations and store trimmings? It isn’t holiday shoppers; it isn’t holiday gift wrappers at Barnes & Noble raising money for local charities by offering to wrap your literary presents; it isn’t even all the red holiday bows [...]

All in the Family

Posted on November 27, 2013 by in Columns, Frontdesk

Frontdesk by David Waggoner November is a month when we have to decide to which candidates we give our votes. Sometimes, as we all know, we feel buyer’s remorse when said candidate leaves campaign promises unfulfilled. Maybe November is a good time, then, for gathering family and friends around the Thanksgiving table, because honoring those [...]

Posted on November 25, 2013 by in Columns, Just*in Time

Just*in Time by Justin B. Terry-Smith Hey Justin, How are you? I really enjoy your videos and I admire your strength. My issue is that I’m a twenty-one-year-old transgender female and I’m scared I may be positive. A couple months ago I got bumps on my left breast that turned into a scab; I scrubbed [...]

Patient Knowledge

Posted on November 1, 2013 by in Columns, First Generation

First Generation by Chuck Willman Another Opening, Another Sore Sometimes patients do know best! After my last column there’s both good and bad news; NO cancer and all tests were negative for any “major problem.” Yay! However, all of the testing I endured left us with nothing but question marks over our heads. So back [...]

Just*in Time: October 2013

Posted on October 18, 2013 by in Columns, Just*in Time

Just*in Time by Justin B. Terry-Smith Justin, I was recently diagnosed with HIV and I have been dealing with it pretty well but there are still times—at least once or twice a day—when I feel insecure or down about the situation. I have basically come to terms with the fact that I have HIV and [...]

Ruby’s Rap by Ruby Comer Melissa Manchester Don’t cry out loud through the eyes of love, because you should only hear how she talks about you when my boyfriend’s back at midnight blue, so come in from the rain whenever I call you friend. Can’t make this out? A little confused? Poor lambies. I was [...]
