Myth Or Bullsh*T?
There is a new article on Buzzfeed about 7 common myths related to HIV. The author tries to disprove them with simple matters of facts and funny images and I think he succeeded in it pretty well. I will list all the mentioned false beliefs one after the other, and I’d like you to honestly think about how and how many of them are part of your way of thinking:

HIV is not a gay disease, “Down low” men are infecting Black women, Only sluts get HIV, Gay men get HIV because they have riskier sex, Condoms are the only form of HIV protection, “Full-blown AIDS” is a thing, The HIV epidemic is no longer a big deal …more

Super Condoms Might Be Coming Our Way!
As everybody knows, condoms are one of the best and easily accessible methods for safe sex. They’ve been around for over 400 years; nowadays available in plenty of different shapes, colours and sizes. The only thing that they have yet to achieve is to become 100% unbreakable. Unfortunately, perfection does not exist and it all depends on how much we take care of them so we save ourselves a heart attack afterwards …more

India Steps Back To 1860
Gay sex in India is illegal. Again! If you’re in India, gay, and you practice sex with another gay partner, you are a criminal and you can be punished with up to 10 years in jail.
A sense of acceptance towards the gay community started slowly developing in the country from 2009, thanks to a decision by the Delhi High Court that we can consider as a milestone in the history of gay rights of the country. The Court ruled unconstitutional and changed a section of the Indian penal code dating back to 1860 that …more

HIV Witch Hunt: The Lowest Point Of The Crisis
In May 2012 around 90 women were rounded up in a police sweep in central Athens a few days before the Greek parliament elections. They were tested for HIV and those who came up positive were charged for intentionally causing grievous bodily harm. The media started reporting the news and also publishing personal details of the sex workers. At the same time, new figures about HIV in Greece were released, showing a 57% increase in new infections.

Christmas Time!
Apart from it a being a time for family gatherings, business/school dinners and the inevitable gain of weight composed mainly by roasts and candy canes, some of you might think that this time of the year got a little too commercial and that, to some extent, the whole purpose behind Christmas or Valentine’s Day is to spend way too much money in super fancy presents. Sometimes it even becomes some sort of competition – which is pretty crazy considering this is all about being together and having a fun time …more

My Farewell To Nelson Mandela
There was no way I wouldn’t join the media today by writing few lines about the biggest news in the world at the moment. South Africa’s first democratically elected president has passed away Thursday evening, 5th of December at his home in Johannesburg, aged 95 years old. I did not have the pleasure to meet him but I can write about his ideals as I believe that everybody should know who he was, especially the younger generation as that’s a social group he supported the most …more

I’m pretty sure if I ask who’s been the most influential name in pop music over the last five years, most of you will say Lady Gaga. And rightly so. 
I remember when she first started and even back then, she was already showing some attitude, which is essential when you want to be famous, I think. After that, few club hits and a massive line of extravagant outfits, there she was. Well, her and her 5 Grammy Awards and 13 MTV Music Video Awards, shining behind her and proving that, no matter whether you love her or hate her, she is BIG …more
