  1. I guess they need more funding so the more HIV+ people the better. They had 20 years to reduce the rate and they did the opposite.

    1. Clearly you no concept of how HIV Charities are funded. This particular campaign is produced by HIV Prevention England where THT is the lead contractor. The funding is fixed for a 3 year period, this work is commissioned by the Department of Health.

      This has nothing to do with voluntary charitable income. It would be helpful if you backed up your statements with factual information, rather than make false statements to suit your rather juvenile argument!

    For complete accuracy the article should read ” The first OPENLY gay soldier…” Many gay people served in the Armed Forces long before that particular law was changed. Some no doubt ended up on the front of Soldier for other reasons. Rant over :-)
    Apart from that niggle anything that raises the weeks profile is good.

      How true, well said.

    2. He was never the first openly gay soldier, that is totally inaccurate

    This is the bole who, when in the army, bragged about other soldiers who he had slept with. They were in the closet and it made their lives hell. He is hardly an inspirational figure; just some immature gay tart who should not have been in the services.

    This is the bloke who, when in the army, bragged about other soldiers who he had slept with. They were in the closet and it made their lives hell. He is hardly an inspirational figure; just some immature gay tart who should not have been in the services. An there have been many, many gay men in the army before him.
