    I have HIV/Aids. I am open everywhere about it. I find gay men in Manchester more rejecting than my local neighbours on a council estate in Radcliffe (Manchester). I am fat (but not gross), so that creates problems in finding a partner which is fair enough, but most gay men just write me off. It’s 5 years since I have been even kissed.

    No wonder people avoid the test.

    This news is very disappointing. I remember well the early years of HIV/AIDS , when gays were the only ones attempting to stem the tide of HIV, with assistance from no one.(I was a Canadian living in southern California at the time.) I think perhaps the development of effective treatment options have made the present generation complacent. Also, ‘our’ generation had the horrific experience of coming face to face with the disease on virtually a daily basis for years. Living in Vancouver, it was commonplace to see men who were obviously in various stages of dying; on the street with friends assisting them. During that dreadful era, I buried fifty-seven good friends. As for the answer to the problem posed by Mr. Azad , ….I really do not know. I am alive at the discretion of some of the most toxic medications ever produced, & believe me; it’s no fun. Thanks for your attention.
