Word AIDS Day: Aging brings special issues for those with HIV

“In 2015, more than half of all people living with HIV in the United States will be older than 50. A fair number of people are simply living much longer with HIV, and that’s a good thing. Too many, however, are contracting HIV when they’re older than 50, and their health needs will be different from someone who tested positive at a younger age.”

This article in AIDSMeds gives more details.

October is Domestic Abuse Month: LGBT Victims

BRAVO- dayton-pride-14-2

About every 9 seconds someone is experiencing the pain and terror of domestic abuse. Often it is a spouse or partner, but sometimes it is children. Domestic abuse affects LGBT people too, but it may be more difficult to identify because of the different psychosocial dynamics in same-sex relationships. If you are victimized by domestic abuse — not only physical abuse but mental/psychological as well — don’t hesitate to reach out for help. BRAVO is an Ohio organization focused on helping LGBT victims of domestic abuse. The Artemis Center in Dayton, Ohio, also is a valuable resource. You are not alone! Don’t be afraid to reach out for help.
