My Weekly Quote

In commemoration of Worlds AIDS Day: 

Someday, the AIDS crisis will be over. Remember that. And when that day comes — when that day has come and gone, there’ll be people alive on this earth — gay people and straight people, men and women, black and white, who will hear the story that once there was a terrible disease in this country and all over the world, and that a brave group of people stood up and fought and, in some cases, gave their lives, so that other people might live and be free.  -Vito Russo
From ACT UP demonstrations in ALBANY NY, May 9, 1988 and at the Department of Health and Human Services, Washington D.C. October 10, 1988
