This book offers almost every gay man an opportunity to revisit dating and come away with an enriched perspective."--Lin Maslow, RN, HIV Clinical Research Nurse, San Francisco, CA"Love in the Time of HIV insightfully examines the way that HIV has led gay men to rethink the nature of their relationships.
Michael Mancilla and Lisa Troshinsky intelligently explore HIV-positive culture as an enclave within the larger gay world, while also demonstrating how HIV has saturated all levels of consciousness.
Mancilla and Troshinsky have taken on a huge task and done so with this practical and insightful piece of work."Michael Mancilla, MSW, LICSW, is an openly HIV-positive psychotherapist who specializes in working with individuals, couples, and families affected by HIV/AIDS.
He is a frequent presenter at national and international conferences.
The book should be very helpful by itself to readers who want to explore these issues on their own; it should also be an excellent adjunct to therapy."--David J.
Martin, Ph D, Director, HIV Mental Health Services, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center; Professor, Dept.If you are still married, charges will often be dropped if the only direct evidence is the testimony of the victim.Spouses may not be compelled to testify against current spouses, even under subpoena.Stories from the road, including Mancilla's own anecdotes, keep the journey in constant motion and show a vulnerability and familiarity with the field which seronegative tour organizers would probably lack.And the many valuable resources included alone make this book worth the cover price."--Edmund White, author of A Boy's Own Story and coauthor of The Joy of Gay Sex"This powerful book captures the complexities of relationships and sexuality for those living with HIV and those who love them.No matter what the domestic situation is that you have become involved in, you should seek legal counsel immediately to begin your defense.
