“We have come far and we haven’t come far.” –#TheNormalHeart author & activist #LarryKramer
The BOTCHED AIDS crisis is among the greater injustices committed by America–and have been many–certainly in our lifetime; it’s like America’s own little Holocaust where a government, a citizenry, and most churches stayed…SILENT. And in the process, we lost almost an entire generation of men–and since, women and children of all ages and races.
HELL YES we have a lot of work to do. And we must NEVER, ever forget or allow ourselves to wallow in apathy and indifference to what has happened.
Ergo, #Texas governor #RickPerry, et al, cutting Medicaid funding that affects so many, particularly children and DIRECTLY people struggling with #HIVAIDS.
36 MILLION–3.3 MILLION UNDER 15–DEAD WORLDWIDE.

1 IN 4 NEW INFECTIONS OCCURS IN YOUTH BETWEEN AGES 13-24. (HRC statistic)
WORLDWIDE, WOMEN CONSTITUTE OVER HALF OF THE PEOPLE LIVING WITH HIV/AIDS.
GET OFF YOUR ASSES PEOPLE.
