HIV *IS* A Gay Disease, Says LAGLC

I've been getting emails all morning asking what I think of this new campaign from the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center. And my answer is....I'm not sure. All of the old issues of stigmatization and shaming come back to the surface, yes. But I'm also very mindful of the recent stats on infection rates and with that in mind, I'm tempted to allow just about whatever campaign might save lives. Check out what the LAGLC says on the new campaign site My gut instinct is to call this out as outrageous grandstanding from an org looking for visibility. But I'm not down in the trenches every day having to tell sweet-faced young boys some really bad news. I'm going to have to think about this.
