it has come to my attention that even some of my closes straight friends have an indication that AIDS is still very much a LGBTQ issue. Please be advised in this day and age that assumption is false and if anything the amount of conversation going on in MY community about safe sex and prevention puts ME at much lower risk then you’d think. Do the research. Check the politics. // Note to all my straight allies: the next time you read an article or see a news report about AIDS/HIV just remember, … it’s indiscriminate and using the preface “Gay or straight, let’s just be safe always please!” is indeed — SHADE.
