AN EXCERPT FROM A POZ MAGAZINE ARTICLE BY ALEX GARNER, THE FOUNDING EDITOR OF POSITIVE FRONTIERS WANTS AN HONEST CONVERSATION ABOUT LIVING WITH HIV
Receiving the news that you are HIV positive is life changing. Some people experience profound fear and shame upon hearing the news, but they don’t have to. Let’s stop scaring negative men about the “woes and wariness of living with HIV” and instead have an honest conversation about the complexities, good and bad, that accompany living with HIV.
HIV is not like serving a prison sentence and HIV-positive individuals don’t exist as walking prevention messages. It’s time to stop cultivating fear in HIV-negative people and instead provide spaces where both positive and negative men can live authentic lives and determine for themselves what is best for their health and wellness.
These are six life changes that come with a diagnosis:
“So honoured and ecstatic to announce my collaboration with @BALENCIAGA on the upcoming FW15 Menswear campaign!!!!” said Sam Smith via his Instagram account. The new face of Balenciaga showcases his new svelte body on pictures snapped by Josh Olins for the French Fashion House.
I am surprisingly happy to see Sam doing the Balenciaga campaign as this is my favorite brand. Expensive yes, it’s Pret-à-Porter, but I always try to get 1-2 pieces every year, but I love the aesthetic of the brand since Alexander Wang is the designer.
Check out the first images released by the Balenciaga below and the short video teaser above.

I live in western New York and it’s very rural. Most people hear NY state and they think the city. Not so here where I live. So every now and then I travel to Toronto for some hot sexy fun. This particular trip was the most outstanding trip of all so I have to share the experience!
First off, I’m a 45 year old gay man who is very average and never had much luck picking up guys. I’m just too average and after all these years, it’s no big deal to me. So I get to Toronto and check into a hotel room that is centrally located in the gay village. I love that you can walk to everything in Toronto and just leave the car parked in the garage. Once everything is put away, I’m ready to go walking and find what I can in beautiful Toronto. It was early afternoon and off I go to explore!
As I’m walking around the village, I come to a restaurant that had various local gay magazines right in front of the entry, so I picked up a few of those to take back to the hotel with me. I visit Hernando’s Hideaway, my favorite Mexican restaurant in Toronto for a bite to eat. Then it’s back to exploring the village on my way to my hotel room. I see a few places I want to check out later when I hit the bars and make note of them.
Back in my room, I start perusing the gay mags I picked up. I notice right away they are loaded with ads for “escorts”. Intrigued, I continue to look at the various ads and just the thought of not having to try and pick up a guy at the bar is very interesting to me. I see a guy that is all muscles in the ad and he said his rates were $80 for an erotic massage. I’ve never had an erotic massage and his rate was fantastic, so I gave him a call. His name is Mark and yes, he does the erotic massage totally naked. I asked if he would answer his door naked as well, and yes, that was no problem either. So he gives me his address and I shower and then I’m off to meet Mark – a sexy muscled rent boy. How exciting!
Do you remember a few weeks ago, GAYROOM created Fuck a Porn Star contest to find a porn fan that would anonymously become a porn actor for one scene? Fuck a Porn Star is a hot series where regular guys hookup with top porn stars and let you watch! Well Christian Taylor is the winner and he registered to the contest from my post right here, on A4A blog!
The winner of the contest was offered to choose with whom he would fuck. Christian decided to get fucked by Superstar Billy Santoro and also chose not to hide his face. The full porn star experience!
Check out the full scene by clicking here and get 40% on a membership at GAYROOM. Get ready for some steamy (and sticky) action! You can see Christian above thanking A4A for the opportunity and also after the jump with Billy Santoro.
Have a great day everyone!
