Caribbean cruise and retreatThe combined gay and hetero Caribbean Positive Cruise is scheduled for October 10–18, and expects to sell out in early June. There are separate, as well as combined, activities for the two groups. The cruise sails for eight nights, beginning at Ft. Lauderdale on Saturday, October 10, with stops in St. Thomas, Antigua, Tortola, and Nassau. Rates begin at $535 per person, plus taxes. The annual cruise, which also serves as a fundraiser for HIV organizations, provides educational forums in addition to social activities, and starts out with a Celebration of Life Ceremony. This year’s speakers include Dr. Michael Wohlfeiler and treatment activist Nelson Vergel (whose photograph graces this issue’s cover).
