That's only sixteen years.
I fucking LIVED through both changes, and I still can't believe that timeline when I think about it. #WorldAIDSDay
And it reminds me how much of that homophobia and pozphobia hasn't changed.
(oh, and committing Medicare fraud but that's just an aside)
(Officially, the FDA still only considers condom safety and effectiveness for vaginal sex.)
That is homophobic.
They've attacked queer culture and lifestyles, and killed the queers who wouldn't assimilate.
It was not an accident.
It was not inevitable.
Those deaths could have been prevented. #WorldAIDSDay
Remember, if you were gay in the 80s and 90s, there was no escaping the experience of death all around you.
Many queer people of color still have this experience, today. nytimes.com/2017/06/06/mag…
Keep that image in the back of your mind today. #WorldAIDSDay
