Heart to Heart : Three HIV-positive couples share their inspiring love stories.
Living with HIV doesn’t mean you have to live without love and romance. Plenty of positive people have met, and married, their soul mates. How do these couples make it work? What role does the virus play in their relationships and health? And what advice can they offer lovelorn singles and struggling couples? Three long-term couples—in which both partners are HIV positive—get to the heart of the matter.

AIDS Memorial Quilt in San Francisco for Valentine’s Day

Merchants and advocates are in talks with the family that owns the vacant Market and Noe Center near the Castro neighborhood in San Francisco to put on public view 40 sections of the AIDS Memorial Quilt during the week of Valentine’s Day, The Bay Area Reporter (BAR) reports. Roughly 320 individual panels stored locally would be showcased. Organizers said it would be the largest quilt display in the city since the NAMES Project Foundation, the nonprofit that cares for the quilt, closed its Castro workshop on Market Street in 1999 and relocated to Atlanta in 2000. According to NAMES, the quilt now weighs in at 54 tons and includes more than 47,000 panels dedicated in memory of more than 90,000 individuals.

Universal Love…by Lora René Tucker

Well, Valentine’s Day is upon us… and whether you light a candle for the Saint, open a box of chocolates (may you get Knipschildt or Godiva), or buy a couple of king size Hershey bars to drown your sorrows (because you just can’t find a date!) I want to share with you a poem that I feel embraces everyone and makes us think of a love larger and stronger than a Hallmark card or e-Valentine:


WORLD CONCERT

Our lives are in concert with others; compatibly at times,
Not so well other times, but invariably, with others.
We don’t always acknowledge that togetherness, but moved to,
we quickly sense the comforts of a shared symphony.

People belong to sections of the orchestra;
Each master of their instrument; 
Yet the concert belongs to more than just out “section” -  
Our neighborhoods, families, circle of friends…or us.

The symphony is greater; the harmonies, complex,
With a conductor who vigilantly keeps tempo.
This concert encourages us to appreciate
The music we make with others.

The whole of creation depends on
The contribution of each part for its completion.
Interdependently, never singly and alone,
WE EXIST.
We are one with one another  - 
The concert is
Eternal.

And Love is eternal.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Free Condoms for Valentine’s Day in Philippines

Health officials will give away condoms on Valentine’s Day in the Philippines despite protests from a Catholic archbishop, GMA News reports. Health workers will focus their distribution efforts in bars, massage parlors and similar establishments targeting men who have sex with men (MSM). Archbishop Angel Lagdameo said, “The use of contraceptives affects the morality of our people and our society in general…[Filipinos instead should practice] abstinence, fidelity to one’s spouse and obedience to God’s will.” The Philippines reported at least 236 new cases of HIV in 2011.
