    It's called Voices in the Band by Dr Susan Hall. Link to book on Amazon-opoly. I read it for a social work course, and I'm impressed by the team approach the staff took. Often times an HIV+ diagnosis was just one thing in a line of awful things in people's lives, sadly. . . :(

    Tomorrow, 5th December, in the UK, it's the 10 year anniversary of same sex civil partnerships which paved the way to marriage and I've just been watching an interview with photos and videos of the very first ceremony. The interview was incredibly emotional, happy and filled with love. The ceremony was carried out in a hospice the day before one of the men died. Ah, it made me :fragile:
    There needs to be much more love in this world.

    While it hasn't attracted much comment, it's nice to see that Javier Raya came out. He and the boyfriend make a cute couple.

    She's the true definition of a deplorable.

    Ok US gays, do you guys think we'll keep our rights after the one term president Trump has done his term ? With luck he gets impeached within his first year.

    Heartwarming advert encourages gay couples to keep holding hands

    The Bank of Australia and New Zealand is supporting Auckland Pride this year and created this advertisement about gay people holding hands in public, what it means and how public reaction pressures couples to let go. Here's a direct link to the video. You may want to have a hankie nearby:

    The day after the election I seriously had a think about if we were going to pack one bag with our most valuables and head to the airport, but decided we are for the time protected by the blue state wall. Other than filing taxes jointly, which we have yet to do, the federal recognition doesn't really get us anything. Here in blue state country, we're still married untill they too revert back to the dark ages.

    As for Cindy, she was always my least favorite Brady. Seriously, rewatch the show and tell me Mike didn't at least hint that Carol maybe have her tested for developmental disabilities. Not just the lisp, but girl was seriously slow on the uptake.

    I keep telling myself that SOMEONE has to be here in flyover redneck country to speak up for those who don't hold redneck values. . . otherwise they'd (probably) never hear any opinions that differed from their own.

    Yes, they (the government) are telling families to kill their gay children, and if they dont do it the government will kill them.

    Merkel tried pressing Putin on it today but they just deny its even happening.....

    I am so glad you posted about this beautiful film, as I hadn't seen it mentioned yet on FSU.
