HIV transmission has more to do with the kinds of sexual activities one engages in, rather than who is engaging in these activities.

That is, if someone has HIV, it can be transmitted through certain sexual activities regardless of the gender or sexual orientation of each person involved in the sexual encounter.


Here's the lowdown on what HIV is, how it can be transmitted, and how to take measures to protect oneself against getting it..

As explained in the user registration, unless you use a handle or name you use anywhere else, no one reading a post can know who someone is.

In the case of users in serious danger because of posts, we have a protected area, but that's for users like those getting help getting out of serious abuse.
