All the many times I’ve gone to get a free, anonymous HIV test, the professional people at Howard Brown or T-Pan have always been happy and surprised to note that I am so concerned about my health. “Especially because you are so young,” they say. I’m not impressed with myself about wanting to know my status, but if AIDS care workers are, then there has to be some alarming amount of indifference going on in the people they see. After the recent, tragic failure of an HIV vaccine, the many reports about Africa and continuing rise in world-wide infections, we’ll be collectively living with this for generations. Know your status. Protect yourself. Educate others. Fucking google it:
