i'm reposting this after i posted it originally on the b9. please read it.

i don't really know how to go about this, but i'm doing it for all the right reasons, i promise.

I just got off the phone with a good friend that i have toured with before. he still plays for a band that does fairly well and tours and what not. he confided in me to keep his identity secret while he goes through the necessary measure to contact certain partners. He just found out that he is HIV positive. 100% legit HIV positive. it's weird to even be typing these words.

We live in an age where people seem to think safe sex is something that we don't need to worry about. this should be a wake up call. Everyone makes jokes about eskimo buddies and scenes sluts or whatever you want to say about it (both male and female) but the bottom line is many members of the hardcore scene have had sexual contact with the same people. whether or not protection is always used...who knows...but my friend wanted to make it clear that anybody that has been in any form promiscuous should get themselves checked out immediately. From what he has gathered he has basically almost assumed that he has given it to more than one girl in multiple areas, as it was brought to his attention by a partner who tracked it back to him after he was diagnosed. he did his research and found who he belies to be the person who he contracted it from and it was "several partners ago".

bottom line: Do yourself a favor and get tested ASAP. practice more safe sex. as someone that has been on the road and seen and done risky things i know how common such practices can be.

i am completely steel trap, you will not get his name from me so don't bother. when the time is right perhaps he will go public. it is not my or his intention to create a whole bunch of gossip, we just want to help.

for real though, please get tested as soon as possible and get used to getting head with a condom on. forgive my humor, just trying to cope with it and what not.
