I had a friend die of aids about a year ago. Jill had some so far but we still have miles to go before we sleep. RIP JIll and all the others who have died from AIDS. you impacted our lives more than you will ever know. Education about Aids is a great thing to do.

the world has lost a lot from this disease, we are making progress, and hopefully will continue....and lets hope the progress is truly made at the world level and not just in the wealthy countries...

I remember exactly were I was and what I was doing when I first heard about AIDS...the Age of Love and random sex ended officially then. In the small town I lived in back then we all thought we were immune, after all it was in the Big City that the reports were coming in...and there were absolutely no LGBT in our little corner of the world. We just knew this disease wouldn't affect heteros...

We've all lost someone to this dreadful disease, straight and LGBT...Good to remind others that AIDS hasn't been conquered, though there have been medical advancements. RIP to all those now gone, but never forgotten.

I had a friend die years ago from aids...way back when they thought you could catch it just from taking care of someone. Sad ...

We have to keep the information going out all time to keep people alert and vigilant about staying healthy. The best way to do this is to use protection -- and to get regularly tested!! Clinics are fine, but I like the next gen online site, Pricing is low, test sites are convenient, and Ican securely share my results via their platform -- not from an email that could be hacked. Real important to take control of this for ourselves!
