    Yes, World AIDS Day on December 1st...

    I'm curious to know what everyone is doing to recommit energy and recognize the impact this disease has had on our community?

    I am attending three HIV/AIDS work shops
    I am presenting an HIV/AIDS workshop to a group of university students
    I recommitted myself to my blog site.

    A young guy that I mentor and myself will be attending a workshop for newly infected people. They "newbies" will have the opportunity to ask me and others like me any questions about how we cope with being hiv+ through the years and hopefully become a mentor to more. icon_biggrin.gif

    I work for M.A.C, and some of my colleagues and I are volunteering at A Loving Spoonful today. http://www.alovingspoonful.org/

    We'll be packing up the meals for the people who use the service.

    What's really astounding to me is that 30 years after AIDS was identified, there are still a lot of guys who want to bareback.

    The Other City (Outfest 2010), which documents the crisis as it stands today in Washington, DC, is one such film. It premieres on Showtime tonight at 7:30PM ET/PT.

    Just to remind everyone, not that they need reminding Im sure, but still! HIV isnt a virus that has a thing for the Gays......it infects everybody. Including the unborn kids of infected women and stuff.
    The only way to kill it is by research which involves money.
    And also remember, TALK IS CHEEP!


    Sign UP, and if you want, help them out. They failed to reach there target this year. And all of their Ambassadors do it for free. So any money given, wont be going towards Carla!

    My partner & I will be walking together in an AIDS candlelight march tonight. After which he'll be performing in a gay chorus.

    I presume most of the US Republican supporters here will be staying home, thinking of new attacks on gay rights to post, and telling us why World AIDS Day should be eliminated.
