As Positive as You Wanna Be: ICP 2.7

'sup Faggotz,

Ever committed to the global touchy feeliness that is HIV/AIDS on the Internet, the Spin Cycle is proud to play host to Edition 2.7 (January 2008) of the International Carnival of Pozitivities. We here at the Cycle have a special place in our collective rice-grain sized heart for the ICP. We were the inaugural post on the inaugural Carnival, way back in . . . well, a long fucking time ago.

Here's how it works. A whole lotta folks have penned articles on their blogs with HIV as a common theme and we link to all of them here. This is chock full of some excellent shit people. There's science, there's community activism, there are heart rending accounts of the human cost of AIDS, there are videos.


There's even stuff for the religious sorts amongst you.

Our contributors are an eclectic mob to say the least. From newbies to established bloggers, to the Red Cross and Red Crescent, and even the fucking US Government. It's a red letter event, my lovelies.

So without further delay and in no particular order, welcome to the January 12, 2008 edition of international carnival of pozitivities!

Hi Matty! Are you still mad at me for being who I am? I do miss arguing with you. As you would say "oh my".
I hope you are well. J
