Three Decades of HIV/AIDS, Part Three: A Blog Entry by Bob Frascino, M.D. (July 27, 2011)
"Our view of the future was the AIDS crisis would continue to gain momentum and notoriety.

We imagined ignorance and stigma would be replaced by knowledge, reason and compassion. None of these things actually occurred."
HIV at 30: A Blog Entry by Gary Bell (July 20, 2011)
"My blog today will be more in the form of a rant. It comes on the heels of a recent radio show on which I appeared. During the show, I experienced a sense of déjà vu; that the conversation I was engaged in has happened before. After 30 years, I was answering many of the same questions, the same way."

"I don't remember hearing about AIDS back then and if I did with a name like GRID, I probably would have dismissed it in seconds. I mean I am a heterosexual woman and gay had nothing to do with me. And given the fact that I was trying to figure out where my next meal was coming from, a disease like this would have been the last thing on my mind."
Where Was I When HIV First Reared Its Ugly Head? A Blog Entry by ScotCharles (June 3, 2011)
"As clear as a bell 30 years later, I remember an announcer and commentator discussing the previous day's CDC report. My partner and I were going to a dinner party that Saturday evening; and, it was at that party that I first talked about what would become the AIDS Crisis."
