But still even today it is not safe to be a gay. The tolerance is much greater than it used to be but it seems that any prolonged economic hardship can bring old days back. So nothing is sure nowadays.

In the early days of the Aids epidemic, sanctimonious religious folks (a great many were the usual "I have a reserved seat in Heaven and you Hell" "Christian") totally believed it was an exclusively homosexual disease and a well-deserved punishment from "God" (theirs ).
.
Devoid of compassion for the suffering, they believed they were immuned.
.
Then doctors began to see heterosexual Aids patients. It was then funding for research stepped up in order to come up with Rx to arrest the progressive development of the disease, and in the hope to discover a cure.
.
A lot has been done since then, and a lot achieved.

The survival rate of Aids patients is high. Many live with the disease and have learned to manage it in a way not to transmit the disease to a partner.
.
Then came the intravenous drug use epidemic. With it, the HIV epidemic for reasons of the resuse of dirty needles.
.
Information (the correct kind, not myth and hearsay and curses said to be from "The Bible") and knowledge help a long way to fight this scourge. Ignorance not only hurt other people. It hurts the ignorant, for some of them contracted HIV and they don't even know when, where, how and why. But of course, they will consult their "Holy Book" and it is ALWAYS right. Do they ever stop and think perhaps they are the scourge?
