Wieści z Instagramu: Gays With Kids, Anderson Cooper, Michał Kwiatkowski, Światowy Dzień AIDS ...

I can’t begin to explain how @theaidsmemorial has changed my life and my perspective. It is the best site I follow on instagram. Every day @theaidsmemorial allows me to see the faces and read the stories of men and women who were just like you and me, men and women who had their lives cruelly cut short. Maybe more people don’t follow it because they think it will be depressing. I certainly have cried reading it, but I have also been inspired and changed by the people whose names I’ve come to know. Ron Werner wrote of his first boyfriend, Wayne Emerson Black, “Gone. Dead. Forgotten in the invisible war, HIV/AIDS, that so many Americans at the time refused to see or acknowledge. He was here. He was important. He was incredible.” Wayne Was Here. They All Were Here. Help Remember Them. Every Day. Always.

In a bit of a funny coincidence, today’s #jimparsonsistoostupidforpolitics is covering Masterpiece Cakeshop v Colorado Civil Rights Commission on what is also World AIDS Day. To talk about the Supreme Court case, about the baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, will be the brilliant Garret Epps of @theatlantic who’s writings on the Supreme Court are riveting reading. In honor of World AIDS Day, I encourage all of you to check out @theaidsmemorial an IG page with a beautiful collection of photos and stories about those who have passed from the deadly disease. Yes, it can be devastatingly sad reading at times but, just as often, it is also a celebration and it is always an education. Gorgeous stuff. So join us at 7e/4p on @radioandysxm for our Supreme Court chat - very excited! - and keep those who are living with HIV, those have passed from AIDS and all of us who need to stay safe and aware in your thoughts today. ❤️🇺🇸

In a sweeping speech marking World AIDS Day in Golden Gate Park, former President Bill Clinton on Friday told members of a captive audience that in these turbulent political times they should remember that ordinary people have long spurred change and bent the will of humanity, as they did in the worst years of the AIDS epidemic. “It’s almost impossible to imagine how painful it was, how helpless you felt” in the 1980s, when the epidemic began, Clinton said. “I’m grateful for all the people who did things when no one was listening, when no one else was around. The fight to bend the arc toward justice began here in San Francisco. So many were suffering, so many were dying, and ordinary people were coming together here.” 📷: @chinnski #worldaidsday #aids #goldengatepark #sf #billclinton
