gifting : Gay & Black Glossary


A disturbing trend is the deliberate passing and receiving of HIV (Human Immuno-deficiency Virus) voluntarily and ritualistically called gifting. These people foolishly imagine there is something romantic, communal, daring or uninhibited about HIV. They imagine it will reduce their anxiety to finally have the Damocletian sword drop.

Some can’t stand the frustration of protected sex. They imagine life will be so fun and sexy with HIV. Hah! The pleasure of unprotected sex lasts but a moment, the pain of unprotected sex lasts your whole life long. I assure you, you don’t want it. Almost any degree of frustration is worth avoiding HIV.

There is a documentary about this strange San Francisco phenomenon called The Gift.
