If you are not aware of this, December 1st is World AIDS Day. Many have been lost in this fight against this illness and my heart goes out to all who have been affected by it. I stated this last year, but one of my uncles contracted the HIV virus back in the early 1990s and he developed full blown AIDS in a very short period of time. Remembering him is quite painful as I saw how horrible he deteriorated after such a short period of time. He was my only gay relative and he was quite a wonderful person.


Many living with HIV currently have a much better chance at living long full lives than those from the past, but even still, this is a very dangerous virus. The LGBT community was hit harshly back in the 1980-90s. I know many others who have lost loved ones and remember this much clearer than I do myself. Currently there are 36 million people around the world who are living with HIV. The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) have stated that minorities are much more likely to be infected with gay/bisexual African American men having the highest rate of infection more so than any other population. So many people have been lost.


Besides using protection such as condoms, there is a drug to help prevent HIV known as Truvada also known as PrEP. It can be difficult to obtain a prescription from your doctor, but your health is worth the hassle. You should also know your status. Get tested regularly. It is free. Simply Go to FreeHIVTest.net to find an clinic or location in your area. If you are HIV positive and feel depressed, know that there are lots of counseling services out there for you. Go to: CareResource.org for more information.

I will not speak on this, but those out there living with HIV or those that know others that have been lost, be strong.

Check out this new trailer for the Three Bears, which is an online breakfast show starring, three smoking hot bears. It seems playful but at the same time informative about different breakfast foods and how to make them. The bears include: Joel, Phil and Matt.

Their website is located at: RowseHoney.co.uk/ThreeBears

Their first episode, which is approximately 2 minutes long, has already been posted. It’s so cute and sexy at the same time. Very well done and I love all three of them!

Admittedly, I didn’t watch Will and Grace when it aired originally. I did catch some eps here and there in the rerun universe, but I never saw the series all the way through. To be honest, I didn’t even like the characters of Will and Grace that much. I liked Karen and Jack far more than the series namesake characters. When I saw that the new series was going to make a come back, I was somewhat happy but I still have not actually watched the first episode yet. I can not even explain why I was never that curious about the original series and watching it all the way through like I have with other sitcoms. Do you like the series? Is the new series worth checking out?

If you were unaware of this, October is LGBT History month. I am no where near educated enough to provide insight to events that have taken place with regards to our past. As is, even currently, equality is not any where near where we should be as a society. Our current timeline of events have been harsh and cruel to say the least. However with some very strong people leading the way, there have been many victories as well. Some resources for events or just simply a history lesson, here a couple sites that I found informative:

There is an LGBT History site that provides info on many iconic figure and provides resources. Their website is located: LGBTHistoryMonth.com

I found a personal blog that regularly updates with LGBT historic events over at: GayWrites.org

There is the GLSEN.org site that gives historic details that I never even heard of before recently.


I do want to point out that one of the events that started off the modern LGBT movement was an annual protest event called The Reminder that took place each July 4 at Independence Hall in Philadelphia starting in 1965. The Stonewall Riots took place on June 28, 1969 to which the final Reminder protest happened one week later. The two leading figures during the Stonewall Riots were trans women Marsha P. Johnson and Silvia Rivera. Both women are sometimes ignored or completely forgotten when discussing this affair. I consider both to be such heroic women.
