  • PART TWO - His Love Is My Drug: Finding Love After HIV Diagnosis by Amahl S. Azwar

    Before I was left without a job, a dear friend of mine told me about a gay gathering off Phuket, Thailand in the beginning of the year 2014.
    Of course, when I first decided to join (before my previous life was over), I did want to find sex and love at the event. However, after the HIV diagnosis, I did not think it was a good idea (plus, I needed to save what little money I had left).

  • PART ONE - His Love Is My Drug: Finding Love After HIV Diagnosis by Amahl S. Azwar

    Kids, I’m going to tell you an incredible story. The story of how I met my husbro. This gonna take a while so you might want to get comfortable. Make a good cup of tea. Grab the cookie jar.
    Ready? Good.
    You see, before I met my husbro, I had a different life. That is, a life before I was HIV-positive or, to be precise, before I found out about my HIV status.

  • Guy, Interrupted - How Being HIV Positive Opens My Eyes by Amahl S. Azwar

    It’s an old cliché, but like all cliches, it’s the truth – your life can change in the blink of an eye.
    Looking back, I should’ve been able to avoid HIV. I mean, I watched Philadelphia when I was still in elementary school so I was pretty much familiar with the matter. In the 1990s I watched several episodes of Kupu-Kupu Ungu (Purple Butterfly). In case you forgot, Kupu-Kupu Ungu is a local TV series that attempted to raise HIV/AIDS awareness and funded by Ford Foundation and the Health Ministry.

    On top of that, when I was barely 17 years old I attended an HIV workshop. I know all the dos and don’ts.

  • No Lifeguard On Duty - The Condom Checklist by Amahl S. Azwar

    The harsh truth of gay dating life is that there is no “lifeguard on duty.” Yes, “swim at your own risk” because no one will stop you even when you get too close to “sharks.” The only thing that you can rely on is that little voice inside your head.  Remember Olivia Pope from Scandal? If you are familiar with this character from the American political thriller TV series, you’d remember how her gut would tell her everything she need to know. Her gut is never wrong.
    I’d say the same thing to you: Listen to what your gut is telling you. Trust your gut.
