Stop Taking About “Asses”

19 07 2012

Washington, D.C.

I’ll make this really easy for you.

The 74-page report, “Back of the Line: The State of AIDS Among Black Gay Men in America,” says black gay and bisexual men make up one in 500 Americans overall, but account for one in four new HIV infections in the United States.

And:

Wilson also faulted mainstream gay rights groups for putting the HIV-AIDS crisis on the back burner, now that it is no longer a pressing issue for affluent gays in big cities whose bigger concern today is marriage equality.

“There are almost no national LGBT organizations today that give a rat’s ass about the lives of black gay men as they are impacted by HIV-AIDS, and that’s disgraceful,” he said.

Why should the “mainstream” (read: white) LGBTQMIALOLPLPLTH orgs worry that much about HIV/AIDS, when condoms and ARV drugs, and now the new blocker drug, has halted the spread of HIV/AIDS among those who take proper precautions?
