Charlie Sheen sat down with Matt Lauer on NBC’s Today Show to reveal his HIV-positive status. The interview had been billed as a “revealing personal announcement,” and sites like the Daily Mail and TMZ were reporting that it would be about his HIV status.
Last week, several news outlets began running salacious headlines about a Hollywood A-lister who has been trying to keep his HIV status a secret for years. Several prominent HIV-activists have criticized the reporting as fear-mongering and stigma-fueled rhetoric that is often become standard for mainstream HIV reporting.
I watched the Interview and have to admit that I liked it. Matt’s questions were on point, they even invited Charlie’s doctor to talk about transmission and the virus itself. Even though Charlie was obviously stressed about revealing his status, I feel that it was done properly. This interview will certainly educate people on how transmission is done and it’s a good thing they decided to invite his doctor to talk about it. I hope that it will also warn people on dangers to mix unprotected sex and drugs.
Watch a part of the interview below and let me know your thoughts!
I was amazed to see our A4A Twitter account tagged this morning by none other than New York Times! The famous newspaper has a wedding section in which they mentioned that Neil and Daniel met through Adam4Adam in 2007 and finally got married. When we say that Adam4Adam is what you make of it, that’s the proof!
In a recent post on our blog, we discussed about wether or not love exists. It does! You just need to be patient. And for those who said that A4A was a hookup site, yes it is, but it is also a dating site, a social site. Many of you have been there since the beginning, 2003, some of you developed friendship through A4A, some found love, some found sex parties, some found hookups. There’s something for everyone.
We rarely get to hear about the couples who formed on A4A because most of the times, they delete their accounts or at least don’t use it the same way. But if you’d like to get featured as a A4A couple, let me know (email@example.com) and I’ll be glad to share your story on the blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. It is always great for other members to hear about stories like these!
Congratulations to Neil and Daniel!
I put up a Paris selfie yesterday with a simple message of sending love to those in Paris and Beirut. I later removed it because of all the judgmental posts regarding slacktivism, the ignorance of Facebook not recognizing other tragedies and the media selectively covering Paris. Then I’ve thought about it a little more. What’s not being told is just as telling as what is. There are constant wedges trying to divide and segregate us from one another. But why? Governments only addressing France, Facebook only offering the France flag overlay and the media focusing on Paris are all statements that divide us. I also can’t help but observe how these messages align with and feed the industry of war.
We are all disturbed by the news from Paris. I understand Paris is a beloved and familiar space for a lot of people, but it troubled me that Beirut, had received so little attention after the horrific bombings two days earlier. It also troubled me that Baghdad received even less attention after the senseless bombing that took place there last week. Worst of all, I found the understanding of the refugee crisis skewed and simplistic. If you’ve been following the journeys of the people leaving their homes around the world right now, perhaps you’ll understand why the words #SyrianRefugeeCrisis are just as devastating as #PrayForParis. It’s time to pray for humanity. It is time to make all places beloved. It’s time to pray for the world.
It’s too easy to hate. Its too easy to point the finger. It’s time to learn how to love. It’s time to create new messages that unite instead of listening to the messages that divide us. Peace!

I just feel really pissed off about the whole “race/preference”, “age” “hwp” and “masc/fem” debates. It is all so freaking stupid, we need so many idiotic labels and discriminatory groupings instead of seeing the person who exists, we might as well live in the world of The Giver or Divergent where we are supposed to let others decide who we are and what we are for us. I’m 24 and have had some many experiences that made me feel so unimportant. I lock my photos because 99% of the time the moment a guy sees what I look like, I get blocked, ignored or bullied to the point where I block them. I know I’m not aesthetically pleasing by most people’s standards but I have feelings hopes and dreams.
