8: Out in Africa: facing the HIV other in Nairobi


On a trip to Kenya to participate in a writing workshop, the author, an HIV-positive gay man in his fifties from Montana, finds himself compelled to face the precarious lives of other long-term survivors, attending a support group in the slum of Korogocho, and finding a level of intimacy that leads to a realisation and expression of the uncanny similarity in the different lives of women and men living with the global virus.
