With greater freedom of sexual expression comes greater sexual responsibility. However, it’s not always easy to determine the facts about what is safe, safer or unsafe. Having open and honest discussions with a health provider is not always easy, but it is critical to your health. This show focuses on the current status of HIV, recent stories of an outbreak of meningitis affecting gay men as well as other STD’s of which participants in male-on-male sex need to be aware. Donna Shubrooks, RN, the STD Program Coordinator for the Connecticut-based Hartford Gay and Lesbian Health Collective (HGLHC) joins Jim Duke for a discussion on healthy issues affecting gay men today.
