Some people tell us that in olden days, long ago, our people - the Queer Tribe - were the magicians, the storytellers, and the spell-weavers. We were the ones who were called upon at the time of birth and the time of death. We had access to another level of seeing things, and we could see a world in front of our eyes that others did not see.
But fear, largely as a result of trauma from the HIV/AIDS epidemic, has separated us from our sex - and therefore, from our power. It is time now to re-claim that power.
Model Kayden Gray has been outspoken publicly about the reality that gay men still are often misinformed and undereducated when it comes to the safety of having sex with someone who is HIV+, on meds, with an undetectable viral load.
The social construct we’re deconstructing is the fear and discrimination that we carry, as gay men, when it comes to HIV+ sex partners - even when they’re undetectable.
