A few months ago Jordan Arseneault allowed Visual AIDS to repost his piece, Silence = Sex, about a man's experience of trying to hook up with HIV. It remains one of out most viewed post.

Arseneault, working with poster/VIRUS, has now turned that writing into a poster that is hitting the streets in Canada, and across the World Wide Web. The poster, a textual and visual play off of The Silence Equals Death project work, provides the following 21st century update:

Silence = Sex
The criminalization of HIV+ people perpetuates stigma and prevents HIV prevention. HIV+ people are often caught in a “Catch 22,” wherein disclosure is required by law, but often leads to immediate rejection. Inform yourself : overcome stigma and get laid!
