About Us

POZSeattle is a 300-member strong grassroots organization of HIV+ gay men.  POZSeattle is the only organization in the Puget Sound area that plans and coordinates social events for HIV+ gay men that was founded in 1999.

Our original creation came from the awareness in the HIV+ community for social connections and networking beyond that provided by traditional social service organizations and a realization that HIV+ gay men are seeking events that are purely social.  POZSeattle isn’t affiliated with any other service organization.  Because of this, our events are fun, and low stress, without presentations with a message.  If you are seeking something other than social, please refer to the resources page.

In addition to our monthly social at the Cuff, every second Wednesday of the month, special events are periodically planned.  We also encourage members to organize their own events, such as hiking, potlucks, movies, biking, etc., and we’ll promote the event via e-mails to our members and postings on our web site.

We welcome all HIV+ gay men without regard to race, color, age, religion, national origin, or disability who are living with HIV/AIDS.  We have no membership dues or formalities, suggested donation of $5.00 . No one turned away due to lack of funds. .  You are encouraged to subscribe to our email list to receive emails about upcoming events.  This list is confidential and will never be used to send emails other than POZSeattle announcements.

Financial support for POZSeattle comes largely from members and friends.
