The most important information about us and our offers
Our offers: Our regular activities
-The Positive Stammtisch
our leisure activities:
We meet every Tuesday from 19:30 at Beru in Thalkirchner Straße 10. We are happy to have found a restaurant that is not only in the heart of the Glockenbachviertel, but also appreciates our group. With Café Rubin, we have consciously chosen a place that is open to everyone. With delicious food and a diverse range of drinks, we look forward to seeing many new and familiar faces. On these evenings, we want to foster and further develop togetherness in an informal atmosphere. The fun is clearly in the foreground on these evenings. If you don't find us right away, just ask the friendly staff.
We look forward to new participants.
A warm welcome!
-The positive bar
at the SUB
Every 3rd Friday of the month from 19:00 we work voluntarily, with (obviously) a lot of fun behind the counter. In the meantime, we have become an integral part of Munich's nightlife scene. Just come to Sub as a guest and enjoy the evening with us. We are also happy about new people who support us at the bar.
For more than nine years, people with HIV and their friends have been showing their faces behind the bar at Sub, Munich's gay communication and cultural centre. What was viewed sceptically at the beginning has developed into a real classic. Many guests and the Sub itself appreciate the Positive Counter and our commitment. The topic of HIV has thus found a firm place in the middle of the Munich community. The visibility of us HIV-positive people at the Positive Bar actively reduces prejudices.
Every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7:30 pm, the core team meets at Sub for a working meeting. We coordinate our tasks and plan and organize new events.
Participants are very welcome.
Please contact us before.
Our offers: Online consulting
Counseling is first provided online, anonymously and free of charge. An answer will be given after 24 hours at the latest and will be continued by telephone if necessary. Engelbert (on the right in the picture), representing Siegi (not in the picture), has been advising on HIV therapy for 20 years, regularly attends the important HIV congresses and is a member of the German Expert Network HIV/Hepatitis e.V. and a board member of Projekt Information e.V. Engelbert has been HIV-positive for 34 years and has been taking HIV therapy for 24 years.
HIV therapy counseling
After a positive test result, your HIV counsellor will recommend HIV therapy. HIV treatment is a lifelong affair so far. There are some things to keep in mind and we think, every HIV-positive person should be familiar with their therapy:
PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis or the "pill before") is another way to reliably protect yourself from HIV infection, in addition to condoms and protection through therapy!
Our PrEP counselling is an online service where our PrEP counsellor Engelbert will give you competent and reliable advice.
PrEP involves taking HIV medication (2 active substances) to protect against HIV infection.
We celebrate: 5 years of Münchner Positive
The Munich Positives have now been around for 5 years. We are very proud of what we have achieved in the last few years. You can see a small overview of what we have achieved as a self-help group and what issues we are concerned about in our anniversary film. With all our commitment, fun and togetherness are particularly important to us. Watch the film and even better, just come to our Positive Stammtisch and get to know us. We look forward to meeting you. To the next 5 years.
Your Munich Positives
We are: Self-confident, active and independent
We Munich Positives are a network of HIV-positive women and men and their friends, which actively supports the interests of HIV-positive people. Through public activities we interfere as experts in our own cause. We keep ourselves up to date medically by attending congresses and further training. We from the core team are also networked nationwide with other groups in the HIV community, among others through the AktHIV.de network.
We raise our voices in a self-determined way on issues that are important to us. It helps that we are politically independent and have a purely voluntary structure.
Relatives and friends also support us - regardless of whether they live with or without HIV.
Our goals are:
We are also on Instagram.
