Do you recognise these men? They are the three accused in the murder of Barney van Heerden in Joburg and may be possible members of a gang targeting gay men nationally.
OUT, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) health and well-being group in Pretoria, once again calls on gay, bisexual and men who have sex with men to take precautions in light of the murders of at least eight gay men in Gauteng and the recent murder of a gay man in Cape Town.
Police have confirmed that they believe that a gang targeting gay men has been operating in these areas. Even though three men have been arrested in one of the murder cases, police have warned gay men nationally to be wary of whom they allow into their homes as other suspects may continue to target them.
An Australian researcher has announced a breakthrough in the fight against HIV that could result in a possible cure for AIDS.
Associate Professor David Harrich, from the Queensland Institute of Medical Research’s Molecular Virology Laboratory, has found how to modify a protein in the HI virus so that it provides strong, lasting protection from infection.
Do all gay men cheat? And what does it mean to cheat? It partly depends on how we define the term. One couple’s cheating may be another couple’s agreed-upon sex play.
One of the benefits of being gay is that we haven’t been forced into traditional notions of what defines a relationship, allowing us to decide and agree on what kind of partnerships we wish to have. There are endless variations and we all have the freedom to decide what works for us and within our relationships.
There is growing concern that young gay men are becoming increasingly complacent about HIV and AIDS and their effects. Is it because of treatment becoming available or could there be deeper issues related to our identity and self-worth at play?
Internationally, researchers have observed that this growing trend has emerged alongside the provision of antiretroviral therapy. It is generally believed that with the emergence of antiretroviral therapy, many people have become less concerned about the risk and severity of HIV and AIDS.
Just as we've started getting our heads around Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP), now comes PrEP, or Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis . It may be a little confusing but ultimately it means that we're adding yet another weapon to the arsenal we can use in the fight against the HI Virus (HIV).
The primary difference between the two strategies is that PEP is a course of anti-retroviral drugs (ARVs) that is taken within 72 hours AFTER a risky sexual encounter – for example, after a burst condom or a drunken one-night stand.
