Welcome to Positive Link
Welcome to Positive Link, a program of the Minnesota AIDS Project for gay and bi men living with HIV. We are pleased to showcase the first phase of our new look and website, featuring information about the program, staff, sexually transmitted infections and an up–to–date calendar of Positive Link activities. In the near future we hope to bring you more information about sexual health and leading a healthy lifestyle as a person living with HIV. We welcome all constructive feedback. Please with your comments.
Program Updates and Upcoming Activities
Updated November 7, 2013
Good morning everyone,
Since it's November, now seemed like a good time to give you an idea of what Positive Link has planned for the month. First, we have planned to join in the festivities for the opening of the new Aliveness Project “Alive 2.0 A Dance Party Benefit”. They are moving into Kingfield Neighborhood, so they've decided as a neighborhood association, to throw them a fundraiser on the evening of Saturday, November 9. Join Positive Link as we go and show our support for an organization, which gives so much to the HIV community.
One week later on Saturday, November 16 at 11 a.m., Positive Link is heading back to the Loring Kitchen Bar located at 1359 Willow St., in Minneapolis for the monthly BYOB. We are headed back to one of the favorites to have our Buy Your Own Brunches, as the food is always good and well so is the company. Please r.s.v.p., if you plan on attending, so we are able to let the restaurant know how many people will be attending. Thanks.
Then the week before Thanksgiving, Thursday November 21 at 6:30 p.m. for a presentation of HIV and Sexual Health. We have arranged for this evening to be at 7 Steakhouse, located at 700 Hennepin Ave S., Minneapolis. The event is sponsored by Gilead and food and valet parking are both complimentary. Tell the valet you are with the Gilead or MAP event. The menu for the evening includes Baby Field Greens Salad, Manhattan New York Strip Steak, Grilled Salmon, Butternut Squash Ravioli, Roasted Potato Trio, Creme Brulee and Warm Lava Cake. The presentation will start promptly at 6:30 p.m. and the space is limited, so if you have not already r.s.v.p'd, please contact Bobby or Steve at to see if we still have space.
Finally, over the weekend of December 6-7, will be the final Disclosure Dialogues of 2013. Disclosure Dialogues is a fun, informative and useful way to navigate disclosure issues with family, friends and sex partners before they actually happen. The workshop uses Hollywood style movie clips to spark discussion. No matter how long you have been living with HIV, it's a great way to think about issues important to our community and to help each other navigate the sometimes challenging situations we face as people living with HIV. Have fun. Learn something. Make new friends! All meals are free and you receive a $30 Target gift card at completion.
Space if limited and Steve or Bobby will need to speak with you for a brief intake interview before you are accepted. We look forward to lively discussion and a great group of participants! We start out with Dinner Friday at 6pm then usually end early afternoon on Saturday. To contact Steve: 612-373-2463 or Bobby: 612-373-2464
That is the next month in a nut shell, as far as Positive Link activities. Over the next couple of weeks, Bobby and Steve will begin the planning process for 2014 and would like your input. If you have an activity, that you think Positive Link should explore doing, let us know. We are looking for activities for throughout the year and restaurants that might be able to accommodate a group or take a reservation. We are open to any and all suggestions and we hope to hear from you.
Thanks and see you soon,
Steve and Bobby
