When My T Cells Are Old and Gray


A Video Blog

By Mark S. King

December 2, 2009

Do I have the right to complain about getting older? As my 49th birthday approaches in a couple weeks, I've been bemoaning my distant youth, and how little the gay community celebrates those of us "of a certain age."

Then again, I've been blessed with surviving HIV for more than 25 years. I should be grateful. I'm of two minds about this, so I let them both battle it out in my new video blog. Along the way we'll discuss spray tans, butt padding and Donny Osmond. Have a look and let me know where you stand -- do you think living life fully means having the right to complain about it?


Episode 10: When My T Cells Are Old and Gray

I'm glad to be back producing video blogs for The Body again, after taking some time to get recharged and consider new topics. I've missed you, my friends! Enjoy the blog, and please be well.
