32nd World AIDS Day

From time to time, I sit and I cry thinking about all the people who aren't here anymore because they died of AIDS-related illnesses. These people are missing from our world, from our communities. People who aren't so different from me or my friends. I won't get HIV because I have access to PrEP. My friends who have HIV will likely live long and healthy lives, because they have access to effective treatment. But that's not true for everyone living with HIV, even today.

I won't get HIV...

... because I am ugly and have a winning personality. So, I got little sympathy for good looking guys who can't keep it together.

I hear the song Under Pressure I think of absent friends. Do younger people even know what that song is about?

Maybe who knows it could be true.

I am as straight and privileged as they come but the thought of the “gay plague” generation being forgotten is profoundly sad. Those people lived and died in fear, usually alone and hated. I hope that the few remaining older gay/lesbian/trans/bi adults remaining are remembered or even better their stories recorded so hopefully we never forget their suffering and learn from it. No one should live in fear and shame.
