POZitive Attitudes is a topic-driven peer lead HIV support group for Gay and Bi-Sexual men who are infected or affected by HIV or AIDS.
We meet every Wednesday night from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at the Pride Center in Equality Park, 2040 N. Dixie Highway in Wilton Manors, FL 33305.
The first hour is dedicated to a specific pre-determined topic. Check out our list of past topics on this website. Around 8 o’clock, we take a 15 minute break for refreshments; cake, soda and water. The second half, we’ll discuss items of interest that affect our community such as Medical Updates, News Events, or up coming social events.
We have ground rules that govern how we conduct our meetings. We are an anonymous group and so we expect our members to not out other’s status. We respect opinons without judging. We speak from our own experiences saying “I” rather than the accusatory “you”. Individuals under the influence of drugs or alcohol will be asked to leave and come back when they are sober.
Our Weekly Meetings are FREE and Open to all Gay and Bi-Sexual Men who are Infected or Affected by HIV or AIDS. We provide a confidential, safe and comfortable space to share information, build lasting friendships, and get support.
In addition to the weekly Wednesday evening discussion, the Fort Lauderdale Group hosts regular Friday Movie Nights, special dinners, and other social events. Check out our calendar of events.
Through this web site, we hope to share information and foster discussions about important health, social, and economic issues that are of particular interest to the HIV community.
So whether you have been recently diagnosed with HIV or have been a long term survivor of HIV/AIDS, you are welcome to ‘just show up’ to our meeting meetings and/or participate in our on-line discussions.
