Health: Serodiscordant Couples
Are you poz? Neg? Is your BF poz? Is he neg?
If you are positive, does it makes you sad that some people think that being poz is being dirty, slutty, unhealthy or unclean?
Negative guys, do you know that poz guys are sometimes more healthy than other guys? Why? Because they get tested every 2-3 months by their doctor for everything. From anemia to hepatitis and other blood infection or STDs. Of course knowing your status is very important, because when you don’t know it, it can be very dangerous. When you know it, with medications, you become undetectable very quickly and therefore the virus transmission is almost impossible.
The short movie “Knowing” wants to spread the message of the importance of knowing your HIV status, telling and asking, and choosing love.
It is a beautifully shot short film about the early stages of a serodiscordant relationship (on poz, one neg) who manage the task of being tender, sexy and educational without being preachy or heavy-handed.
Impulse Group has followed that effort up with a second short film “Open” which further explores the nuance of a sexually active, serodiscordant couple during moments of decision, revelation, frustration and, most of all, love.
By sharing these videos with you guys, I want you to educate yourself on the subject if you are not familiar with it. Watch these short 4-5 minutes movies, they are very well done and it demystifies the situation.
Let me know your thoughts and guys….don’t be scared of undetectable guys, they can love you too 🙂
