On Thursday 16th January a bunch of HIV-positive gay men are going to meet up in Soho and go on a pub crawl.
In many respects this is entirely ordinary: there are hundreds of gay men living with HIV drinking in the gay bars of Soho every evening. What will be different is that they will be there as openly HIV-positive gay men. And they’ll be wearing red. It's an interesting take on the old assumptions thing - a big part of our film, The Bareback Issue in many respects. They don't know how many guys will turn up (quite a big ask for many which underlines why it's still a valid thing to address) but worth noting if you want to take part.

Chris the hottie manager, who has taken this place and reinvented it, promises an epic party making the most of the big barn of a space - we're talking fire eaters, pole dancers, gogo boys, stage show, confetti cannons (gay farts?), laser and pyrotechnics and or course - a midnight countdown and balloon drop.

Berlin's Bull Bar has shut down allegedly after another death and subsequent drug find by the police - tho we've been unable to confirm this with the bar whose phone is now dead. We know they've had some interest from the local police concerned about drugs...
