Isodate & P+1 Present: World Aid’s Day Virtual Speed Dating Fundraiser
December 1 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
In 2000, a study found zero infections (from a HIV positive individual to their partner) when their ‘viral load’ was less than 1500 copies. Zero. Consequent studies have proven this, leading to the adoption of the slogan U=U (‘Undetectable equals Untransmittable). This means that risk of HIV infection is 0% (yes, ZERO PERCENT) when the positive-individual keeps their viral load below 1500.
And yet in 2021, stigma and misconceptions around HIV continue to exist.
This World Aid’s Day, Isodate and Positive Plus One want to change this; to challenge these misconceptions and provide a safe space (and fun experience) for people to date with, or without, HIV.
So – how does it work?
Using Isodate’s unique platform, individuals will get to go on a number of amazing virtual speed dates with singles from their community. Each date is one-to-one: there’s no swiping, instead just great, humanised dating for 3-4 minutes at a time!
After the date users simply select like or pass, before moving onto their next Isodate. This continues until all participants have met, at which time users will head over to their connections tab to see/talk to their matches.
It’s dating without the downsides: no swiping, no pro-longed messaging, and no catfishing – just people over profiles!
Check out the Isodate 101 to see how it works!
Because we want to make a difference.
Positive Plus One has always been about providing a safe, secure environment for support, friendship and connection amongst the HIV community, and through a collaboration with Isodate allows users to connect effortlessly, no matter where they may be.
After all, Distance means so little when someone means so much.
What do I need to take part?
* A good WiFi/Mobile Data connection
* Your device of choice: phone, computer, laptop, tablet (although we recommend a laptop/computer and Google Chrome)
* A smile (it’s a great conversation starter)
We also recommend a drink of choice, and somewhere comfy to sit…but we’ll leave that up to you!

6) At the end of all the dates, you will find your matches under the ‘Connections’ tab on your profile.
