We had so much fun together last month on LATalkRadio, that Terry LeGrand, the host of “The Alternative,” invited me back to do a regular feature on the show.  This month I discussed the special role gay adoptive parents play in the lives of children (see this article for more information.)

To hear this month’s show – April 4th, 2010 – click here.

Here‘s the link, if you’d like to become a fan of Terry LeGrand and “The Alternative” on Facebook.

My feature begins after 10 minutes – but, as always, the entire show is worth catching.  Terry gives his usual fiery opening monologue, and then, after I do my thing, he sits down with the hilarious drag entertainer, Ester Goldberg.

Here’s an old radio interview, I believe from early 2006.  I was featured on John Riley’s OutFM radio show on WBAI, FM 99.5. My segment begins at 39:30 about two thirds of the way through the show.  I discuss the TalkSafe/PLUSES program that I was administrating at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Manhattan.

There’s some interesting stuff here about HIV and how it affects people’s lives.  John was a pleasure to work with, and with his help, I even put together a short PSA to publicize the program.

Here’s the Facebook Fan page for John’s show.

TalkSafe/PLUSES ran into funding issues a year later, after I’d left.  I believe it remains in existence, though in a different form, and still offers counseling to people with HIV through the HIV Medicaid clinic at St. Vincent’s Hospital.

I saw a great many individual patients, and couples, and also ran a number of short-term groups for HIV+ gay men at Talksafe/PLUSES.  I developed a waiting list eventually, for guys who wanted to continue doing group therapy on a longer-term basis.  Eventually that waiting list turned into a longer-term group I ran as part of my private practice.  We met in my office every Tuesday night, for nearly four years, creating a tight-knit community of guys, now scattered all over the country, who still stay in in touch with me, and with one another.

A big shout-out from the People’s Therapist to the guys from the old Tuesday night HIV+ gay men’s group.
