Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

More than 90,000 Floridians are living with HIV/AIDS, especially here in Miami-Dade, where one in every 98 Hispanic men, one in every 60 non-Hispanic white men, and one in every 29 African-American men are living with the disease.


Luckily, HIV isn't necessarily an automatic death sentence anymore for those living in America, but early detection is key to not only individual health but also curbing the spread of the disease. 

Today, New Times' new neighbor, Out of the Closet, at 2900 N. Biscayne Blvd., a thrift store that benefits those living with HIV/AIDS, is holding a 12-hour HIV-testing marathon from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
