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.

With October right around the corner, it’s time once again to send out a “what’s up” from Positive Link.
We have the final support group of 2014 starting on Wednesday, October 1 at 6:30 p.m., here at the MAP office at 1400 Park Avenue, Minneapolis. This will be a four week group and will run for approximately 90 minutes each week. During this time, there will be conversations about disclosure, medication, stigma and dating. We have also invited experts to present for two of the evenings. Daniel Jude, PharmD and Jean Willis from Gilead will speak about disclosure. Dinner will be provided by Gilead at the October 22 discussion. If you have interest in attending, please contact either Steve or Nic at or via phone.
Games anyone? On Tuesday, October 7 at 7 p.m., here at the MAP offices we will be hosting a game night. We haven’t done this in quite some time but the weather is turning cooler, so what better time? Since it’s a “school” night, we have this scheduled for only 2 hours, which means Monopoly probably isn’t the best idea, but Candyland would be sweet. Bring a board game or deck of cards with you and let the games begin. Light snacks and beverages will be provided.
The final large group presentation of 2014, will be taking place on Tuesday, October 21 at 6:30 p.m. at Seven Restaurant located at 700 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis. The presentation will be “HIV and Depression” with Dr. Paul Benson our guest speaker, from the Be Right Clinic in Michigan. If you would like to attend and have not already RSVP’d please do so, as space is limited. Valet parking will be included for this evening’s presentation. To RSVP, please contact Nic or Steve at or call 612.373.2463 or 612.373.2464.
Finally, we have a two Disclosure Dialogues coming up on November 22 and December 13. We have streamlined the curriculum to a one day workshop, so if you didn’t have the time before to participate, this should fit into your calendar easily. We have limited the number of people to 12 for this very interactive workshop, so if you are interested in joining us, let us know and sooner is better in this case. Both breakfast and lunch are included, so all you need to do is be here, participate and we’ll do the rest. If you have questions about this workshop, don’t hesitate to contact us.
That’s what’s on our agenda and hopefully yours, over the next month or so. We look forward to seeing many of you over the next couple of months, so until we do, enjoy October!
Nic and Steve
