    So released after callmedave’s message and not mentioning Gay Men.

    I’m sure he’ll be defended on here.

  2. Of course, no mention of straights using protection either as if they don’t succumb to HIV. Seems to be in line with the recent Vatican statement that male prostitutes should use condoms. If this disease had first appeared among straights instead of us, I doubt if there would be as much stigma or denigration as we’ve had to endure.

    I doubt it too Robert.

    AIDS is on the rise again amongst Gay Men and Ed can’t be bothered mentioning them.

    Perhaps it would offend ‘the squeezed middle.’

  4. Wow – Ed Miliband has been a complete disappointment to date as leader of Labour.

    His shadow equality minister did an insulting interview with Pink News where she defended civil partnership apartheid.

    Marriage equality is not within the Top 10 of Labour priorities.

    And Ed Milband emgages in some meaningless PR guff for world Aids’ day without mentioning the group most at risk – gay men.

    I guess Labour don’t care about the gay vote.

    Never mind – we’ll remember Miliband’s indifference to our issues come the next election.

    well you wouldn’t want them offending ‘the squeezed middle’ would you?

  6. Save the empty platitudes, Ed. Too little, too late.
