“Openly gay men are not as oppressed as one might fear,” says Daniel Genis in his memoir ‘A Gentleman’s Guide to Sex in Prison’. “The feminine ones are often desired, and there is quite a bit of prostitution going on. I once saw oral sex performed in exchange for two cigarettes and a honey bun…”
It gets even more interesting.
“I can only speak for myself, but in my own time in the New York State system, I rarely saw or even heard about non-consensual sex between men. Perhaps I was just very lucky. Maybe I’d been incarcerated only in the ‘softer’ corners of the penal system. Rape does happen, and all over any prison there are signs with a number to call to anonymously report it, which I always thought was less a matter of sodomy than of legal liability.”
“But more common, from what I could see, was an older prisoner taking a young and inexperienced kid under his wing. Most often, this kid has no money and likes to get high; there are many such people in prison, and they tend to burn their bridges early and totally. And so the older man, who has usually already served major time, feeds the kid, and gets him a little something to smoke or snort. Now the kid has become a ‘fish’. They start working out together, then showering together, then there is a massage, and finally, the kid is asked to ‘help’ the older guy out. He’s ‘no homo,’ but he has needs…” View Full Post

The California Department of Public Health is usually second to New York’s annual advisory; but, hopefully things are tame in the Big Apple.
This recent press release from California is shocking:
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) reports that the number of Invasive Meningococcal Disease cases has recently increased. The newest case is confirmed in a young adult, gay man who works in LA County. He is currently hospitalized and receiving appropriate medical treatment. This brings the total number of cases in LA County in 2016 to 11, of which seven have occurred within the last two months.
Of particular concern, this is the fourth recent case within LA County’s Public Health jurisdiction to occur among self-identified gay men/men who have sex with men (MSM). To date, the reason for the high proportion of cases in this population is unknown, but the majority are among HIV negative men. Two female cases of Invasive Meningococcal Disease have also been confirmed within the same time frame. No deaths have occurred in LA County due to these infections.
“The number of infections among men, most of whom identify as gay or bisexual, is substantially more than would be expected,” said LA County Interim Health Officer, Jeffrey Gunzenhauser, MD, MPH. “This is of great concern, and we want to ensure that individuals who are at risk get vaccinated and take other precautions to stop the spread of this deadly disease.”
Public Health has asked the State and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to assist in the local investigation. This is especially important because there have been Invasive Meningococcal Disease outbreaks among MSM in other jurisdictions across the country.
Including cases from Long Beach and Orange County, this most recent case from LA County brings the total to seven MSM cases in Southern California since the beginning of May. In LA County, there are an estimated 300,000 MSM in a population of more than 10 million people.
Here’s a news story from the 2013 Los Angeles outbreak which includes tips to identify symptoms. Press play.

“Toni cool as fuck, man,” Birdman tells radio veteran Big Boy about Toni Braxton. “Super cool. That’s the homegirl. I’ve been knowing her for a long time. We went to the BET Awards. What’s the big deal? We did music together. We got one coming out together.”
In the 40-minute interview the Cash Money executive also discusses Lil Wayne drama. But, more importantly, his stunt with Charlamagne at Power 105.
“I wanted to go personally and see this man. I saw him and knew a few places he was at, but I didn’t want to take it to that. I wanted to go see him and let him know, face-to-face, homie, stop playing with me.” View Full Post
Who has $1500 for an HIV prevention medication? Who really believes the CDC’s finding that 1 in 2 Black, gay men will become infected with HIV/AIDS? While we wait for the quarterly PrEP injection to become a tangible thing, Gilead Sciences has something they want you to know about their pill.
At a recent American Society for Microbiology meeting they presented an update to the US Pharmacy PrEP Survey and found that 74% of people who filled Truvada prescriptions were White. People of color love saying Black people don’t have the same opportunities as Whites; but, Hispanics are also more likely to swallow the daily pill than Blacks. Our numbers actually decreased.
