WAS GOING TO SAY ‘THE LOVELY TIM SMITH’, BUT THAT IS JUST MY OPINION. BUT AFTER NZ MSM CALLING CARMEN RUPE A ‘DGAG QUEEN’ FOR THE PAST FEW WEEKS, ONE WOULD HAVE HOPED THEY WOULD HAVE GOT THIS STORY ABOUT TAMATI BEING CIVIL UNIONED TO THE ‘LOVELY’ TIMMY. BUT ALL THE STORIES ARE TRUMPETING ‘MARRIAGE’. SORRY, MSM, BUT THEY ARE HAVING A CIVIL UNION. GAY PEOPLE ARE NOT STRAIGHT PEOPLE AND YOUR TRADITIONS ARE NOT OURS. SO, MSM, BEFORE YOU DO STORIES ON ‘GAY STUFF’, CAN YOU LIKE ACTUALLY CHECK THAT WHAT YOU ARE SAYING IS CORRECT. GODS, I AM A DREAMER.
AND TAMATI AND TIMMY, HAVE A MARVELLOUS DAY. YOU ARE A LOVELY COUPLE AND WORK SO WELL TOGETHER. BLESS.
IT SEEMS MORE AND MORE NOW I SEE A VARIATION OF THIS HEADLINE IN THE MEDIA. THE STORY THIS HEADLINE RELATES TO IS HERE.
With the profile of HIV-AIDS undergoing transformation from a life-threatening emergency to a manageable chronic infection, the World Health Organisation (WHO) urged South-East Asian countries to focus on eliminating the infection, particularly among children, by 2015.
“We are coming out of a transformative decade for the HIV-AIDS epidemic. With innovative treatment regimens, improved health services as well as political commitment, HIV-positive people who are on treatment are living longer and better lives,” said Samlee Plianbangchang, WHO regional director for South-East Asia.
WHAT A BULLSHIT, AND MISLEADING HEADLINE. AND JUST AS BAD IS THE WHOLE ‘END AIDS’ CAMPAIGN. IF YOU ARE ‘LIVING WITH AIDS’ THERE SHALL NEVER BE AN ‘END OF AIDS’ FOR YOU. THE VIRUS WILL STAY WITH YOU YOUR WHOLE LIFE, SO THIS WHOLE CAMPAIGN IS AN INSULT AND MIS DIRECTED. ALLOW PEOPLE TO USE CONDOMS TO LESSEN THE CHANCE OF INFECTION. REMEMBER THAT FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE LIVING WITH THE VIRUS THERE SHALL NEVER BE AN ‘END TO AIDS’ SO YOUR WORD CHOICE IS CRAP. HIV/AIDS WILL NEVER BE ‘HISTORY’. FOR THOSE OF US WHO LIVED THROUGH THE FIRST OUTBREAK, AND ARE NOW STRUGGLING WITH THE SECOND ROUND OF INFECTIONS, THIS VIRUS IS APART OF OUR LIVES. AND ALWAYS SHALL BE.
