This Sunday is the 33rd annual @AIDSWalkPhilly—here's a #thread about a different kind of #AIDS walk in #Philadelphia—the city's first candlelight AIDS vigil, in 1986.

#twitterstorians #everythinghasahistory

kywnewsradio.radio.com/articles/news/…
@AIDSWalkPhilly The first Candlelight Walk for #AIDS in #Philadelphia took place on September 25, 1986. Earlier that month, the Department of Public Health reported 479 cases of AIDS in the Philadelphia area, and 298 had died.

See video of the walk:

@AIDSWalkPhilly Of reported cases, 50% were African American—ten points higher than their share of the total #Philadelphia population. But #AIDS agencies were predominantly white, and rooted in the #Gayborhood, which was itself seen as a mostly white space.

In Dallas, #Texas, @POTUS takes the stage 45 minutes behind schedule. My colleague @pwidakuswara is there -- I'll defer to her on whether this is a #MAGA or a #KAG rally.
@POTUS @pwidakuswara Now @POTUS is talking about "the terrible foreign corruption of the Bidens."
@POTUS @pwidakuswara "Pause or ceasefire" agreed to in his "unconventional" agreement with #Turkey to halt hostilities against the Kurds, says @POTUS. "Sometimes you have to let them fight for a little while."

Today is National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day; many of the same factors driving #HIV in Black communities are driving it in Latinx communities as well.

“The way to move forward is to really tackle and address the structural issues.” — @latinoactivist

hrc.org/blog/advocates…
@latinoactivist The fights against #AIDS in Black and Latino communities have also been historically linked. In #Philadelphia, Programa Esfurezo was modeled on @bebashi, one of the country’s first Black AIDS service orgs.
@latinoactivist @bebashi In this clip, @bebashi founder Rashidah Abdul Khabeer (formerly Hassan) talks about the links between her group and others, such as @Congreso1977

.@BronxInk highlights how barber shops and churches are part of the fight against #HIV/#AIDS in the Bronx, where HIV mortality rates are highest among the five boroughs and residents are disproportionately Black and Latino.

bronxink.org/2019/10/13/287…
@BronxInk Beauty salons and barber shops have been part of the fight against AIDS in Black America since the 1980s. South Carolina salon owner DiAna DiAna began doing AIDS education with her friend @GaddistDr in 1986.

forgetthebox.net/diana-diana-ta…
@BronxInk @GaddistDr More recently, @AIDSAlabama started #BeautyinKnowing to train stylists to serve as AIDS educators—barbers and stylists are trusted by clients, and salons and barber shops are places where frank conversations about sexual health can take place.

People who didn't know much about Marianne #Williamson Googled her after the debate the other night.

Here's a summary of her views on #vaccines, #AIDS, and...Darth Vader.

Oh, yes, it's related.

That's really in her book "A Return to Love" (1992).

Here's a picture of the actual words in the book. #FridayThoughts

Here she is denying that she said #depression is a #scam, then backpedaling and saying she was wrong to say it.

Since the beginning of the AIDS epidemic, more than 70 million people have acquired the infection, and about 35 million people have died.
Today, around 37 million worldwide live with #HIV, of whom 22 million are on treatment ⬇️ bit.ly/2QwO8HW
The #HIV virus 🦠 was first isolated by Dr Françoise Barré-Sinoussi and Dr Luc Montagnier in 1983 at the @institutpasteur.

At the beginning of the 1980s, before #HIV had been identified as the cause of AIDS, the infection was thought to only affect specific groups, such as gay men in developed countries and people who inject drugs

At #MAGA rally in #Florida that is the official kick-off event for @realDonaldTrump #Election2020 campaign, @VP is warming up the crowd directly before the appearance of @POTUS.
Actually @POTUS gets introduced by @FLOTUS.
"If we had three or four empty seats, the fake news would say we didn't fill up the arena," according to @POTUS who adds there were 120,000 requests for seats in Orlando tonight's #MAGA rally.

I have been trying to get answers from top tier candidates for several months on their stance on #disability. #HillaryClinton had broad policy & #disabled people on her team in 2016. ONE in FOUR Americans has a disability. We are THE largest minority in America.
#CripTheVote
1/
For those who need a template for a candidate on #disability, here was #HillaryClinton in 2016. We should expand on that, not move backwards.

And there is #HillaryClinton's archived policy, which included #autism, #Alzheimers, #disabilityrights, #mentalhealth, universal healthcare for all, #HIV/#AIDS, paid medical leave, Social Security and Medicare protections, addictions & substance abuse.

Been wanting to write about the #HIV outbreak in Ratodero, Larakana for the past few days. Done with my news report for the paper and now I can share what is on my mind. Interviewed parents, children, civil society members and policemen in the community. Overall anger, disbelief.
Most of the victims have no idea of the severity of the disease. Most of them are children between 0-14 years of age. Many of them do not have #HIV positive parent(s). Most of the families are simple-minded people, bogged down by abject poverty, illiteracy, hunger and ill health.
Ratodero is a small city with a pretty pathetic healthcare system. THQ Hospital struggles with the daily load of sick from all over the city as well as neighbouring towns and villages. People only take their sick to the hospital when they are ‘almost dead’ cause ‘it costs money’.

Hello again! We are pleased to be telling the #polyam / #nonmonogamous (hi)story of Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892-1950), the American poet, feminist, and playwright.
Millay is very well-known among #polyam communities today due to a number of articles that @brainpickings wrote about her “polyamorous” love letters: brainpickings.org/2016/02/22/edn…
Along with this beautiful biography of Millay by @Ballad_BobDylan: amazon.com/What-Lips-My-H…

The #NAPHWA #AIDSGravyPlane needs to be cancelled. #HIV Consumers are calling for a 21st Century #AIDS Paradigm. The idea that NSW & Victoria care about HIV+ folk in WA is false! "Networking" is code for Women Shopping & Male visits to Sex Clubs. @GregHuntMP @KenWyattMP #ausvotes
Isn't #NAPWA part of an international scam to collect tax payer dollars & provide selected cliques with benefits & paid holidays. How many times have #NAFWA come to WA for meetings with #WAAC on the way to Weddings in Margaret River & ignored HIV+ People? @CatherineKingMP #auspol
Want to know if ur political party cares about u? The Canary in the Coal Mine measure is the #AIDS Policy. If it refuses 2 #EndTheGravyPlane & implement a 21st Century Policy, what rights will they remove & what hidden rorts will they waste $ on? #ausvotes #auspol #ausvotes2019

Some #Albertans who have been riding with me for decades are still asking why I interrupted @JKenney as often as I did Tuesday night. Will tell you exactly what I told Andrea Montgomery today on the #AlbertaMorningNews @770CHQR and @630CHED
Whether you're a Flames or Oilers fan You want your guy to rag that puck for as long as possible on the penalty kill. @JKenney insisted on ragging the puck with generic meaningless political rhetoric when the public wanted answers on serious moral questions. Have hosted Kenney
on many shows when i have given him 3 - 5 minutes for an answer. But that's because he's an eloquent speaker when there is moral principle, purpose & power in his language. There was none coming from him as he kept ragging that puck. I interrupted him to force him to focus on

Powerful piece by @emmaogreen on what many of us Catholics feel is the worst failure in our collective lives of the Church--#PriestSexAbuse scandal.
The piece comes as McCarrick is, today, the 1st cardinal to be defrocked.

Sadly, Francis should resign.
He has failed on this.
As a practicing Catholic, I find it hard not to wonder about the history of priests I do not know--and have wondered even about priests I have known.
We ignored priests dying of #AIDS in the 80s and 90s.
Why?
There's so much wrong with the priesthood--a major part is no women.
I'm not sure when I first wrote about pedophile priests, but in 2005 I wrote a series of pieces on then-DA #LynnAbraham's scathing rebuke of the Philadelphia Archdiocese for it's failure to address the violence against minors and others after a 3yr grand jury report.

For my 19th Birthday this month I am requesting donations to one of my favorite #charities if you can please donate: Allies Linked for the Prevention of #HIV and #AIDS : a.l.p.h.a. Donation: facebook.com/donate/3738936… #HIVEducation #HIVTesting #HIVAdvocate alphaidaho.org
It’s interesting when asking for donations regarding this horrible deadly virus everyone is silent or pretend they didn’t see this post! $20 plus xx people is a great amount of donations!! #HIV #AIDS #HIVTesting
HIV/AIDS is something that people don’t want to hear or talk about. A person who works in Pharmacy specializing in infectious disease with a concentration in HIV medication and gives me great pleasure to see how many are still alive when the virus first started, and......

People berating me about #GeorgeHWBush, please take a seat.

GHWB was the architect of today's #racist #GOP.
GHWB ran a series of covert wars.
GHWB stayed silent while thousands of people with #AIDS died.

You can laud his post-presidency philanthropy without erasing history.
This insistence on rehabbing politicians who did real damage--folks just did this with John McCain--because they died is revisionist and does actual harm.

Many people were hurt and many others died because of Bush1.
There is no virtue in dismissing that fact.
This is the 30-year-old #WillieHorton ad everybody is talking about

I lost many friends during the #AIDS crisis.
I still miss them.
I wrote this about #AssottoSaint, who I am thinking of with love on this #WorldAIDSDay
He'd only be 61, were he still alive today.

Remembering Assotto Saint: A Fierce and Fatal Vision shar.es/aa5OB1
"At some point I stopped going to funerals. I had become that woman, the one who keens and wails in the back of the church or synagogue or memorial hall, the one who everyone thinks might throw herself into the open pit of grave or onto the coffin or urn."
shar.es/aa5OB1
"That fight was our gay Normandy and it consumed all our time, all our conversations. Like whispered messages from a foxhole, staccato shots over the bow of life, we spoke to each other like it might be our last time."
