Welcome to Talkabout Online.

Talkabout is the flagship publication of Positive Life NSW. It is a online magazine for and by people living with HIV (PLHIV) with the subhead: 'Where we speak for ourselves'. Content in Talkabout has a primary focus on the personal stories and experiences by and for PLHIV, to express our views and to represent ourselves in a way that is within our control. It has a history of carrying writing that combines the 'personal and political' – articles by PLHIV about our physical and personal experiences that also analyse our social conditions.
