Author Event: “Love in the Time of HIV” by Michael Mancilla
5th & K | Cullen Room | July 25,2012 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Author Michael Mancilla will discuss and sign his new book, "Love in the Time of HIV: The Gay Man's Guide to Sex, Dating, and Relationships."
The facts of life have never been more complicated for gay men. While the threat of AIDS has been diminished by new treatments and longer life expectancy, HIV remains a serious and intractable foe. In this affirming guide, therapist Michael Mancilla, helps fellow gay men, both single and partnered, pursue the happy and fulfilling love life they deserve. Readers will find advice on everything from meeting Mr. Right and talking about HIV status to building the long-term relationships that many never expected to have. Candid first-hand accounts reveal how others in the community are negotiating safer sex, overcoming legal and financial hurdles to plan for the future, learning to accept care as well as give it, and crafting the kinds of intimate relationships they want, whether that means casual sex, dating, or permanent commitment. Smart, honest, and insightful, this book is written from the heart.
