    We aren't doing anything for it this year. Have participated in an evening candlelight march in the past, but we really can't walk that far anymore.

    So tonight my husband & I will be hosting a restaurant dinner for some other "over the hill" types like us, who have been active in the fight against HIV/AIDS. The march will go right past us, and we'll go out onto the sidewalk and hold candles.

    Not much, I know, but the best demonstration of support we can manage. Naturally we've also all given money to the HIV/AIDS agency that's hosting the march.

    Are any of you involved with World AIDS Day today?

    Every day of my life.

    Did you tell your HIV friends at Thanksgiving Dinner they will never be healthy and are damned to die of a mysterious HIV infection at any time? (Like your ex who actually had AIDS). Have you admitted he had AIDS?

    All the money in the world can't undo the stigma you promote. "Not much" is an understatement. You've lied about PrEP, you've lied about ART Therapy, you've lied about me (as you do all HIV+ people.)

    You are a very disturbed individual. Using your own warped agenda to derail & trash this lovely thread about an important day.

    But for the record: None of our dinner guests tonight have HIV. My husband & I both talk openly about our late partners, whom we each lost to AIDS. It's one of our motivations to be involved with HIV/AIDS causes.

    The one here who spreads dangerous misinformation about PrEP is yourself. For your own barebacking goals. And lots of other rational and knowledgeable guys here say so, besides me.

    I think your sickness lies more in your mind than in your body. It's tragic that HIV has turned you into what you are, a health risk to the GLBT community, and not because of HIV itself.

    You are the one perpetuating the hate.

    You deny science at every level. YOU lied about PrEP, likened it to THE PILL, if one dose was missed you'd become infected with HIV vs pregnant. That's simply not true. 5x-7x a week is full coverage.

    If I disagree with you I therefore must be stopped, I must be evil.


    What's lovely about it?

    You have NO medical knowledge whatsoever, you say "So all this BS about sex being safe with an undetectable poz guy is just medical talk dealing with controlled conditions. That has no application, bearing or relevance to the real world situations in which you & I actually operate. And such basic medical research shouldn't be misinterpreted to be providing guidance as to how gay men should behave sexually with each other."

    My 'sickness" is to tell everyone about PrEP, ART and their benefits. They are instrumental in ending HIV/AIDS. Yes, even in the absence of condoms....only because that is the reality.

    You are an impediment. Truly!
    noun

    Art Deco, sorry about raining on your "lovely" self-promotion campaign.

    As long as you are on this site I am bound (morally) to respond to your ignorance. I left this site awhile ago. I only came back when lurking I saw you and others lying and slandering me. You hate, you lie, you falsely accuse me of a heinous 'agenda'. I will be here to answer any lie you make til the day you die. You've made it personal by attacking me.

    It's a tough call, but you are probably the most stigmatizing anti-HIV person on this site.

    My agenda is to see the end of HIV by 2030. As far as I can tell your agenda is to placate Gay men with a 1990s message.

    I don't think you realize how dangerous the old message was. Condoms were all we had, it clearly was NEVER enough.
