I hope that everyone takes the time to read the New York Press's article on the very serious increase of HIV/AIDS in NYC. You should pass it on to friends and family. This passive attitude towards HIV/AIDS will cost another generation of the gay community their health, or worse their lives, if we do not act to curb this resurgence of infection.
