It is hard enough to be gay when your parents do not support it and act differently towards you. I used to be extremely close with my parents, until I told them I was a lesbian. They changed the way they acted, they don't treat me the same and it is absolutely ridiculous. I am still the same person, why do they not see that? Now on top of struggling with my parents not supporting me, my girlfriend of 3 years lives in England. So as if it weren't hard enough we now have to deal with trying to get a visa to live together. In my country they don't see same sex marriage, there are no visas for it. So even though my girlfriend wants to come live here with me she can't. Love is love. There is no difference if it is a woman and a woman, or a man and a man. We should have the right to be able to apply for a same sex visa. I will most likely end up going to live in England and leaving my country because England has same sex visas and their country supports it a lot better then my own. I personally think the situation is bullshit. Were all people who cares what the gender is of the person we love. Its love and it's not right to deny rights for loving someone of the same sex.

ELIZA and Western Blot tests are admittedly intccuraae! So why would you submit yourself to an intccuraae test that could potentially cause you trouble for the rest of your life? Considering an HIV+ result requires a different criteria in Canada, USA, Sweden and South Africa, we are NOT dealing with science. This is politics and money. AIDS testing is detrimental to our society's health.

AlejandroI think it is that type of attitude that ctoninues to foster homophobia, even within the LGBT community. I agree that we need to be more mature, more socially aware, and more focused on full LGBT equality, but do you think assimilation really is the answer? It is not the LGBT's fault that we are seen negatively and it is not just up to us to change; it is homophobia stemming out of this heterosexist society that this is the case. We need to foster more heterosexual allies for sure, but we should not have to behave in order to achieve equality. There's also many men who look damn good in a tutu!

jeff Haven't been deprived of annhityg ? You know, I support LGBT, and their fight for equality, but hey, I want to have kids, without all the negative stuff of afterbirth for the mother. You know, all you guys have to do is pay some lady to have your baby, then dump your seed in a cup, and a baby pops out 10 months later, while us heteros have to take care of the mother before and after birth. I know, when you love someone, it is supposed to be easy, but still it is work. http://nabsok.com [url=http://ngvikxrzkif.com]ngvikxrzkif[/url] [link=http://mxbjopc.com]mxbjopc[/link]

MsAudesapereindividuals with the diagnosis who are wiinllg to speak so openly are a huge help to me as a woman with an hiv positive (hetero) partner. I feel like I am better prepared to help him cope, even after five years of being together. Protecting myself isn't just about the physical aspects, it's also about preserving our relationship to the best of my ability. Just a little note to let you know you are making a difference for many aspects of this community, including loved ones. http://oglsosaes.com [url=http://fgefae.com]fgefae[/url] [link=http://cjznwlxf.com]cjznwlxf[/link]
