Spreading HIV is criminal

Many moons ago I knew someone who knew someone in a group of friends I had when I first came out and when I first launched the old Queer Fresno.  For the purposes of this blog we’ll call him “John Doe” because he still lives in Fresno and still knows some people I know and I don’t want to drudge up old drama.  John and I had a big disagreement around how he handled his HIV status and I was reminded of him last week when an Atlanta pastor was caught sleeping with women in his church and knowingly spreading HIV.

Got queer?

A Week In Reflection

butterfly_wide-991dfa8cf75b175681c5636790d9e1a061d0b412-s18-c85I have to say, it’s been quite a week.  We’ve had “National Coming Out Day”, and”Spirit Day”, plus being October, it’s still National Bullying Prevention Month and LGBT History Month.  We’ve had a major religion still arguing about how to even talk about “them persons”, and plus another state has it’s same-sex marriage ban overturned.  Yet, deep inside, all I can think about, is how all these, lead to and have grown from one thing…being Out.
