The center, located at 1043 Elm Ave., Suite 302, opened last winter and offered limited primary care and services.

“Culturally competent health care is not a luxury,” said APLA Health CEO Craig E. Thompson, in a statement. “Our new health center is designed to address the specific needs of medically underserved communities and particularly LGBT individuals, who experience higher rates of depression and substance abuse, among other issues.”

The center is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 562-432-7300.

From National AIDS Housing Coalition:

Friday, July 29, 2016 the President signed into law H.R. 3700, the "Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 2016," which modifies the administration and delivery of a number of Federal housing programs. It has been given Public Law number 114-201.

Title VII, HOPWA Formula Change, is the long awaited shift from cumulative HIV/AIDS cases to living cases. This law phases in a formula change over five years, factoring in local housing costs and poverty rates, and capping grantee losses at 5% and gains at 10% of the prior year allocation.

Our goal is to provide UCLA students of color from communities disproportionately affected by HIV with the opportunity to serve as HIV test counselors throughout LA county so that they will see their potential as advocates and become future leaders in the field.

We have up to thirty students that we are looking to link with agencies as soon as possible so that they can begin volunteering in mid-September. Please email me at jonathangomez@mednet.ucla.edu for more information if you are interested in receiving volunteer services and supporting our cause!

Walgreens website that helps people with HIV from diagnosis through retirement and every milestone in-between along the HIV journey.

By sharing your experience, no matter if you’re recently diagnosed or have been living with HIV for years, you’ll help create comfort, provide support, and help educate countless others dealing with HIV through a website available to all.

Research presented at this conference will demonstrate that exclusion and discrimination help fuel the spread of HIV.”

This month we'd like to begin a new, monthly series in which we lift up RCP participants, stake holders, and community members who support us in our work. I can't think of anyone better to start off our monthly highlight than our very own Terri Jay, who has been a member and active volunteer of RCP since 2007 and is currently the only Native American on the LA Mayor's Transgender Advisory Council.

Terri Jay is of the Navajo and Zuni Tribes, and was raised on the reservation in Shiprock, New Mexico. She is currently employed with APAIT (Asian Pacific AIDS Intervention Team) as a Certified Addictions Specialist- Counselor with the HEAL Program (Healing Empowering And Living) and Service Navigator-Case Manager with the HI-ARC Program (Health Integration for At-Risk Racial/Ethnic Communities).

She recently completed the Bridge Program at Antioch University, and hopes to one day obtain a Masters in Social Work and become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist so she can work directly with the trans community.

Thank you for your work in the community Terri Jay, we appreciate you, and we look forward to your continued success!

"Discrimination in health care settings can be very common for trans individuals, and some even report outright abuse,” said Cathy Reback, a research sociologist with the UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs and a senior research scientist with Friends Research Institute, Inc.

And discrimination against transgenders may have unintended, but major consequences. In a 2013 study, researchers found that diminished trust in one’s care provider led to a decrease in trans women seeking and adhering to standard or HIV care."

Celebrating All Life & Creation Pow Wow

Celebrating All Life & Creation Pow Wow

Community change occurs in many ways, and one way RCP is changing the face of HIV/AIDS is by bringing many minority groups together by hosting an annual pow wow. For the past five years, RCP has hosted “Celebrating All Life & Creation” Pow Wow in the City of West Hollywood at Plummer Park, 7377 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90046. With the gracious support of City Hall and the Transgender Advisory Board, the pow wows have been very successful and success is measured not only by the turn out—approximately 500 people—but by the diversity of people in attendance. Although RCP is funded to provide services specifically to NA/AN LGBT individuals, they come into contact with broader communities of different ethnicities and are given the opportunity to educate on HIV as well as culture. The presence of a diverse community at the pow wow enhances the experience of all those in attendance.
Everything about a pow wow is traditional. The selection of songs performed, the head staff, and especially the head man and head woman dancer, come from a long line of traditions. Each and every person’s presence adds to the power of the healing process. The gathering of so many diverse individuals in one place and sharing energy adds to the process. In regards to HIV/AIDS education, the diverse attendees will also have an opportunity to have free HIV testing and STI screening which will be made available from JWCH’s (John Wesley Community Health) mobile testing unit that will be on site. There will also be other local organizations providing outreach to disseminate information that will aide in healthy community awareness. With several nonprofit organizations present, there will be information available for all walks of life.

Los Angeles Rally and Vigil for Orlando

Los Angeles Rally and Vigil for Orlando

A horrible tragedy has occurred in Orlando. In an attack on a gay bar, 49 people were killed. Police are calling it "a domestic terror incident." Whatever it is called, it is all too familiar to the LGBT community. Last year nearly two dozen transgender women were murdered nationwide. In the most recent report in Los Angeles, the 2014 Los Angeles County Hate Crime Report, hate crimes on the basis of sexual orientation grew by 14%, and their level of violence surpassed the last 13 years.

We cannot allow this hateful, murderous incident to silence us. Yes, we must express our grief and anger. But we must also make it clear that we will NOT be deterred by hate and violence, and that we celebrate in defiance of bigotry and fear.

We stand for peace. We stand for community. We stand for Orlando.

---------

Tonight's rally and vigil will take place on City Hall's south steps on W 1st St. between Spring and Main. Parking is available at nearby lots, but carpooling and taking mass transit are strongly encouraged. From the Metro Red Line, exit Civic Center/Grand Park Station from the southbound exit and walk downhill through Grand Park, then turn right on Spring St.

"During Pride we want to have a presence for Indigenous people who may be LGBTQ or two-spirit," said Two-Spirited People of Manitoba co-director Albert McLeod. "I think that it is important that people understand Canadian history and some aspects that were left out because of homophobia or transphobia."

McLeod said prior to residential schools in 1870, there was awareness among Indigenous people of LGBT people, but that later changed.

"It is documented through poetry or other writings," said McLeod. "But after that period there are very few references … I think the Indian Residential School not only affected Indigenous people, but Canadian society as a whole in terms of attitudes of trans or lesbian or gay people."

What’s Your Issue? was created with and for youth to lift up the many experiences, concerns, dreams, and desires of young people across the country, so that we can be a part these conversations. This survey is for all of us! If you identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and/or gender non-confirming, if you are in or out of school, struggle financially, have disabilities, are undocumented, in foster care, have experience being homeless, targeted by police abuse, or caught up in the criminal justice system, this survey is for you! Our collective experiences are important and organizers, policy-makers, and educators need to listen up!

Have you heard of PrEP? It is a pill that protects against HIV! Many gay men and trans women are at high risk of getting HIV, so if you feel like you need an extra layer of protection, you should definitely ask any healthcare provider in your life (including us here at Red Circle Project) about PrEP!

Natives have a high rate of HIV infection, which is scary, but PrEP is a concrete way we can STOP THE SPREAD OF HIV, especially within our community!

Want to be an RCP Role Model?

Red Circle Project, as a part of the model we operate under, known as Community Promise, puts out role model stories which highlights the stories of individuals who are part of our community and who have taken the initiative to be in control of their health through knowing their status, helping reduce the stigma associated with HIV and AIDS, and continuing to collect tools to add to their safe sex tool kit, such as condom use, PrEP, harm reduction, or abstinence.
