gay friend, family disgusted.
      #199556 - 07/11/06 12:53 PM

Hi gang..its me SF and NO I am not in the wrong forum. LOL
Problem, I have a gay male friend that is a old family friend. He is in his late 60's, he has known me since I was a little baby, I have always looked at him as a father figure. He was gay all his life, my family knew and accepted this. He had Aids, and everytime I saw him I would hug and kiss him on the lips, he was my dearest friend. My family would say.."Don't kiss him, he is sick" That would hurt and piss me off, so I still and always did kiss him until the day he died!!! People with hiv and AIDS are still that....people! I just needed to vent, because this has bothered me for a long time. I miss him so.
Love and prayers,
SF

thank you for that. We really are still people even though we're not treated as such. If you're not a rich white republican in this country you are nothing. This society we live in makes me sick. I'm a fucking person.. I have feelings... Im not dead...I wonder where the balance in life is cause i sure dont see it

I don't have the answers....but try to take heart in the fact that those people that treat others so unkindly because they are not the same as what one believes is the "norm" will one day get theirs. We all will be held accountable for our actions one day...so those that sit in judgement need to look long and hard at themselves first......what goes around comes around..

I got confused..... I went from " Oh thats nice, Missy has a gay friend'.....to "Oh he's a dead gay friend" Oh well.
Still, knowing him has given you the opportunity to see how unfair predjudice is. I hope your memories of him are good ones.

Bear, when I speak of Wally, I act as though he is still here, sorry..he has been gone 5 years now. He was wonderful, full of spark and a great florist and cook. Some days I just wish he was still here......I know I will see him again. When I was on my rollercoaster he would of said, Come on you little bitch lets get a martini and talk...
Love to you all..and each and everyone of YOU is special to someone!

Although some people are just mean spirited many can't be blamed for ignorance. A lot of folks think you can get HIV thru kissing. Actually at one point I remember "deep" kissing WAS considered a risk. Even though yours was a friendly peck.

It's too easy for us POZ people who have had to get educated fast about HIV, to criticize those out there who still are uniformed.

Also think how much better YOUR life was for knowing this fellow.
