World AIDS Day 2017


I can’t find too much going on to commemorate World AIDS Day in Toronto this year but it just so happens to be the day my Beyond Surviving group meets, so I guess that’s something.

With ACT’s shift away from surviving AIDS to living with HIV, and the promise of preventing it entirely with an AIDS med, I find myself communing with friends who have had AIDS, or been HIV-positive at least, for a generation or so – no longer affiliated with formal service organizations.

I miss some of the urgency we once felt. But on the occasion of World AIDS Day I especially miss many friends, too many to list.
