Undetectables Atlanta founder Daniel Driffin will speak at 4 pm Eastern time on Wednesday (July 27)!
The Democratic National Convention is this week in Philadelphia and Hillary Clinton’s campaign just announced – for the first time in 16 years – an openly HIV-positive LGBT advocate will join Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin and transgender advocate Sarah McBride to discuss needs of our community.

Jaron Benjamin of Housing Works in New York described Driffin thusly: “He’s a 30 year old gay black man living with HIV, and a great public speaker. He will enter Morehouse School of Medicine’s MPHA program in the fall and has served as a Georgia Equality Youth HIV Policy Advisor. He was recently part of a PBS segment on the HIV epidemic in Atlanta. He’s also a founder of “Undetectables Atlanta,” a group of over 400 gay/bisexual men with HIV, and is also a founder of ThriveSS, a non-profit service organization serving the same population. he also serves as co-chair of the Task Force to End AIDS in Fulton County, Georgia.
Around the 5:25 mark in the video below Andrew realizes after recent fails it may be more important to have some dialogue with his online suitors.
When is it appropriate to ask if a guy has children? Where is the appropriate place to have the HIV and STI conversation? How do you tell your date you don’t mean to punch his ego but remind them of the thin line between being confident and arrogant?
So many questions! Especially when it comes to being honest about the type of attention you require. View Full Post

Last summer the original story premiered that 8 guys and 8 girls would be competing to win ‘The Sex Factor‘. Welp, after snatching a deal with XHamster and showing the episodes all of this summer, the time has finally come.
Johnny Black -who I’ve been personally hoping to win- is described as a “20 year old African American with nice guy looks but shoots a mean scene.” And, in episode seven his female co-star was pretty impressed.
The Fulton County water system!
Actor Brandon Karson talks reading his ‘About Him‘ script at the audition, getting to know his co-stars before they filmed sex scenes, and why producers were so nervous the show almost didn’t happen.
Brandon gave ‘Chris & Aaron’ an interesting view of dating in Atlanta, Georgia – “I’ve stopped dating here. Atlanta is really bad as it pertains to dating.”
“If you want to go and have sex this is the city for it.”
“I do date people that aren’t from here because they were actually raised by… PEOPLE!”
“When people see you having a blessing people always want to tear you down,” Vince Herbert tells ‘Entertainment Tonight’ host Kevin Frazier. Tamar Braxton and her boo were spotted at church yesterday. Vince told Kevin the duo is focused on Tay Tay’s new album and “everything is fine.”
Over the weekend the blogs went bananas with a rumor that the pair is headed for divorce. Soon after Tamar posted this video to her Instagram.
