U+, THT’s lifestyle magazine for gay men living with HIV is back in 2010 with a fresh, new look. The latest edition looks at some of the things men can do to stay well like starting to get fit and eating right.
The magazine includes interviews with two HIV positive men who talk frankly about their experiences, how they‘re getting on and how they’ve dealt with the challenges that living with HIV can sometimes bring. U+ also focuses on treatment options and hears from three men – one diagnosed with HIV in 1984, one in 2001 and one in 2003 – to find out what HIV meant to them when they were first diagnosed and what their medication options have been since.
In addition to real-life interviews, the magazine is packed with features on diet and exercise along with practical advice on how men can improve their health without succumbing to faddy diets or detox regimes. Guest columnists include Anna Denny, nutritionist at The Food Chain, who gives tips on eating well. There’s also useful information on the increased risks associated for positive men who smoke, and much more.
Marc Thompson, Deputy Head of Health Promotion from THT said: “If you’re a gay man living with HIV, taking good care of your health is about much more than just a matter of taking pills and having blood tests every few months. It’s about physical and mental health, both of which can be affected by HIV. The new U+ gets to the heart of these issues and we hope it will be essential reading for any HIV positive gay man. We’re also keen to hear what men think about the new improved U+ so why not pick up a copy and let us know?”
