Just in case anyone's wondering...

I'm from the generation of gay men immediately after the worst of the AIDS crisis. I came out in the late 1980s, and was well aware of the dangers of HIV and the necessity of safer sex by the time I became sexually active. I know in my gut that, had I been born 5 years earlier, I wouldn't have survived unscathed.

I turned 40 this year, and have so far remained HIV-negative.

The hardest part about it for me is that there's an entire generation of gay men before me who simply weren't there for me as I came into my own. Selfish, I know, but I was raised without a father, and I NEEDED all of those surrogate daddies in my life. I missed out on so much without them there to take this scared little boy under their wing. It makes me sad to think about what could have been...
Excellent news... Canadians and others with HIV can now travel freely to the United States, without fear of being turned away at the border. Bush has signed into law an AIDS funding bill that lifts the ban on people with HIV entering the United States!


For once, Bush has actually done something positive with that pen...
(Of course, I have to wonder if there are any signing statements attached).
