FOF #2959 – I’m 50 and I Like to Kick!

When it comes to aging, nothing makes us laugh like Molly Shannon’s endearing Sally O’Malley character from SNL triumphantly stating “I’m proud to say I’m 50 years old, I’m not one of those gals who’s afraid to state her real age, and I like to kick, stretch and kick!”

Today therapist and relationship expert Damon L Jacobs joins us to look at turning 50 with power, purpose, and pleasure. Damon just hit the 50 year mark himself and wrote a fabulous collection of blogs on growing older with style inspired by the movie The Breakfast Club.

FOF #2899 – 10 Years of Wild, Unadulterated Fun

Break out the party hats and put on your mask for masks- this November marks the 10 year anniversary of PrEP, the revolutionary HIV prevention method that reduces the risk of contracting HIV even if you’re exposed to the virus.

Just like birth control, the daily pill that effectively stops all new HIV transmissions has been met by the public with a lot of controversy.

But the big question is “how do we get more people on PrEP?”

Today therapist and relationship expert Damon L Jacobs joins us to take a look at a decade of PrEP and how the sexual liberation that came from it is now impacted by the COVID pandemic

FOF #2718 – Velvet Rage: Flaws in 3-D

One of the gay liberation book Velvet Rage, despite all the great ideas presented, is that it misses out on the intersection of gender and sexual identity, and presents traditional, monogamous relationships as the ideal.

Today therapist and relationship expert Damon L Jacobs joins us to take a look at why some gay men get angry when they are challenged and why it’s so hard to draw strength from understanding our weaknesses.

FOF #2681 – Tie a Red AIDS Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree

In 1991, a coalition of artists called Visual AIDS created the Red Ribbon public awareness campaign by boldly putting a red ribbon on the seat of all the attendees of the Tony Awards and brought the national conversation about AIDS out of the shadows and into the light.

Today we take a look at the history of the powerful statement that is the Red AIDS Ribbon that helped ignite a change in a world that would rather not talk about homosexuality, sex work or drug use, let alone HIV & AIDS.

FOF #2277 – PrEP Pioneers

Since the AIDS crisis of the late 80s, condoms have been urged as gospel for gay men to prevent the spread of HIV. But that’s all changing now with PrEP, the use of anti-HIV medication to keep HIV negative people from becoming infected.

Today we’re joined by two pioneers working to raise awareness for Prep: Damon L Jacobs , whose PrEP Facts has been acknowledged by the World Health Organization and Brandyn Gallagher whose group Outshine Northwest is raising awareness for trans men’s health.
