HIV Advocates Asks: What Do You Think Of This App That Could Test HIV In 15 Minutes?

March 30, 2015

 

Researchers at Columbia University in New York has developed an iPhone app and dongle that could very well change a lot of things in the fight against HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. This prototype app can actually test people for HIV and STDs such as syphilis and even get results in just 15 minutes. The device plugs into an iPhone or other smartphone and can analyze blood samples which can then be screened for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.

According to available reports, the device just costs US $34.00. With a fairly affordable price and with such a groundbreaking purpose, the app and dongle could very well revolutionize HIV diagnosis especially in remote areas or in areas where homosexuality is considered illegal or banned altogether.

 

What do you think of this development? Do you think the app can help the advocacy especially led by HIV Advocates?

 

HIV Advocates is a global initiative that aims to share news, experiences, strategies and new tools that will energize human rights movements and communities fighting HIV/AIDS, wants to address. Do you think that the HIV app can play an important role in the fight for more awareness and fight against social stigma and discrimination?

HIV Advocates Reiterates: Straight People Should Understand The LGBT Struggle

March 29, 2015

 

One of the long-standing challenges being experienced not only by the LGBT community but by society as a whole is acceptance. Gay acceptance. While it’s true that society now has become more accepting in a way, the struggle for equality and non-discrimination remains. In fact, there’s one more aspect of this very struggle that society has to pay attention to – the chance for straight people to not view gay people and their activities as “exclusionary.”

 

147984159.jpg-itok=UmUM8rf7Take the case of gay country singer Kevin Thornton of Indiana Queen. Straight people, he says, still sees his music as a way for him to “isolate” himself from the rest of the world. He adds that straight people have the tendency to think that his type of music (and the fact that he openly calls himself a gay country singer) may already be setting aside a possible hetero audience. Thornton says that this was and should never be part of the plan. In any case, he just wants to be accepted as he is and allow him to sing his songs without being viewed as exclusionary, he explains.

 

 

Thornton’s struggle is real. As so the rest of the LGBT community’s. This is exactly why it is important to provide the members of the LGBT community the platform to share their views and sentiments so as to further educate others.

 

HIV Advocates which is a global initiative that aims to share news, experiences, strategies and new tools that aim to energize human rights movements and communities fighting HIV/AIDS, is the answer. Supported by Levi Strauss Foundation and powered by B-Change Foundation,  HIV Advocates encourages existing and would-be activists to explore the power of social media and other Internet avenues to help spread the message across – that discrimination and stigma no longer have any place in society and that society should accept the LGBT community members as they are.

Go To ERA Barbers Hong Kong And Rock The Slick Back Haircutgandy-long-hair

 

Remember those suave Hollywood actors from the 1920s who made quite a presence on screen? They even had long, torrid love affairs with the age old beauties of that era. They were mavericks at a time when TV was still in black and white – men who knew what they wanted, knew what kind of look they could wear best and knew how to make their presence felt. It really was a fascinating time.

 

The Slick Back is essentially a classic short back and sides with highlighted side parting. No use of razors. Just scissored all over. The top is longer and then styled into a cool quiff. This classic men’s haircut works best with finer hair but those with curly hair can still rock this look – just use the proper hair products that can tame down the waves. Ideally, aqua-based pomades should be used for that sleek and shine finish. You can also set the top with hair spray. Don’t forget to use a wide tooth comb to get those line effects.

 

In Hong Kong, you can ask for the Slick Back hairstyle at ERA Barbers. ERA Barbers is best known for its cutting edge, urban chic hairstyles for men as well as retro style groovy haircuts such as the Slick Back.
