World AIDS Day 2019


Because the epidemic has not ended.
Because there are still victims.
Because there's still stigma.




Because there's still people like Cheeto Jr.




And remember, AIDS is not a death sentence anymore, so the original article that prompted Cheeto Jr. to spread ignorance, bigotry and hate, still stands.


If someone is HIV positive, knows their status, is on effective medication and has consistently had an undetectable viral load, they cannot pass on the virus. PrEP is also widely available in the US and several other countries to prevent people from acquiring HIV. And condoms are also, of course, widely available.
QUEERTY

Knowledge is power. Silence is still death.

XOXO


P.S. if you have a minute, go read Rick Reed's blurb about his AIDS-related novel and Jimmy's touching story before he deletes it!

  3. I remember my friend who died. We all knew, but right up to the end he kept telling us he had leukemia. What a terrible shame.
