Marching With ACT UP and QUEEROCRACY AT GAY PRIDE THIS YEAR

(1/1)

Andy Velez:
You're all invited to march with ACT UP and Queerocracy. The main banners on the truck will be a theme settled upon as in sync with the alarming rise in the transmission rate among MSM, particularly among younger guys. At the present rate based on CDC figures, by the time surviving members of the younger generations of MSM reach 50, over half of them will be HIV positive. And the rate is even higher among blacks and Latinos.

We're talking about a return of an epidemic potentially worse than what we experienced first time around in the 1980s.

LGBTQ big time organizations a.k.a. GAY INC, have been pretty much ignoring the epidemic for a long time. Their focus has in some instances been on worthy issues like equal rights. But you have to be alive to enjoy those benefits.

So now ACT UP is saying as you will see on the Pride truck's banners:

FUCK SMARTER! FIGHT HARDER! FIGHT AIDS!
