It didn’t matter how knowledgeable I was about HIV—part of the attraction I had for Brandon died in that moment..
We also know that an HIV diagnosis isn’t the death sentence it was in the early days of the AIDS crisis.
Brandon was handsome, slim, in his early 30s, a pet lover, and financially stable—all qualities that I find very attractive.
We sat at Palermo’s, an Italian restaurant in east Los Angeles known for its oversized plates of pasta and family-friendly decor.
Brandon and I never did make it to third—or a third date.
After dinner, I thanked him for a lovely evening and delivered a thinly veiled excuse about needing to get home to feed my cat. I’ve since gone on Pr EP, which feels like one of the best decisions I’ve made for my sexual and emotional health.
Of course, we still need to use our best judgment in choosing sexual partners—people can lie about their Pr EP or ART regimens.
But if both people are operating from a foundation of trust, given what we know about managing the virus today, there’s no reason to let misplaced fears scare us away.
I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been, and the idea that somebody wouldn’t want to be with me just because I’m HIV positive is upsetting,” Andrew told me recently over the phone.
Since becoming HIV positive in 2012, Andrew, a 36-year-old music journalist living in New York City, has been vocal about his status, his life, and the struggles of what it’s like to date with HIV.
People like Brandon and Andrew—stable, successful, studly men—shouldn’t be bypassed just because of three letters.
