Gay slang for "HIV positive". One's HIV status has become an odd sort of status symbol in the gay culture. A small but vocal minority of gay men argue that it is now necessary to become infected with the HIV virus in order to "fully experience" being gay. They advocate really risky sexual behavior in order to become HIV positive, and then you're supposed to feel this "oneness" with the large segment of gay men who're watching their immune systems crumble. Unless they can afford the really expensive drugs to hold off the virus.
