Congratulations Netta! 

I think it is so great that you did this.  Seeing real faces and reading real stories will help other people deal with their own issues.  Also, is this the issue with Idris Elba in it because that would be another reason to get it.  ::)

Hi Netta,

I saw your part on Greater than AIDS and want to congratulate you for participating. You're a great presence and, I didn't realize until watching it that you're an artist!!

Sorry that I just recently had the time to check out the stories.  What an awesome campaign.  I love your story along with all the others.

Well done Netta,

I think it's awesome that you took that step forward and went public with your story. I'm sure you will have made a huge impact on many people.

Keep well,

My apologies - again, I posted in an LTS thread (although not busted this time). Self-reported faux pas.
