In 1992 HIV/AIDS hit a grim milestone in the United States when it became the number one cause of death among men ages 25 to 44. Since there was still so much stigma attached to the illness, people were often dying without even telling their closest friends and family that they were sick. They died alone because of the shame they felt about having contracted HIV. On this episode of History of the 90s, host Kathy Kenzora looks back at the people and events in the 1990s that helped shaped the fight to remove the stigma and shame that surrounded HIV.

In the bohemian world that is drag, few artists can lay claim to the exulted and ebullient eccentricity that is Cindy Pastel. The alter ego of performer Ritchie Finger, Cindy has been delighting, thrilling and astonishing audiences for close to 45 years.A unique talent, Finger has inspired generations of drag performers who have followed in his fabulous footsteps - whether they be in stilettos or on skates.Ritchie Finger arrived in Sydney from Melbourne in 1979 and became one of the many young drag addicts to work at ‘Patch's' Nightclub on Sydney's celebrated Oxford street.In the early part of the A.I.D.S. crisis Pastel was a tireless worker for HIV/AIDS organisations and charities. The decimation of community was enormous and Pastel, alongside many drag artists, kept everyone smiling.Cindy Pastel has been recognised by the DIVAs - The Drag Industry Variety Awards - twice in her illustrious career. A career that has reached incredible peaks and challenged with occasional obstacles. But through it all Ritchie Finger and Cindy Pastel have danced, paraded, twirled and taken centre stage, to ensure that ‘Everybody's happy!”Recently celebrating a 72nd birthday, Miss 3D is still going strong, embracing every opportunity to perform and entertain an adoring fanbase. The alter ego of Glenn R. Lewis, Miss 3D has been at the pinnacle of Drag performance for over 40 years. Recognised as a matriarch of Sydney Drag performers, she has entranced with a vibrant and unique style; and incredible artistry, eternally mesmerising with opulent and eccentric costume.Growing up in a rural Victorian town, a diet of community theatre and ballet classes shaped a desire to command a stage. Study at the Australian Ballet school followed, before a quick visit to Sydney seduced Glenn and he met his drag tribe through performers such as Doris Fish, Teresa Green and Danny Aboud. Miss 3D quickly established herself on the scene as an artist of superior talent and invention.A holiday to New York City landed a permanent gig at the iconic Anvil Club where 3D performed for two years, wowing the American crowd.Returning to Australia Miss 3D continued to navigate the stages of venues such as Stranded and Patchs, eventually taking up residence at the iconic Albury Hotel with a trio called The Showbags, alongside Drag Legends, Cindy Pastel and Pat Gently.It was a privilege and a delight to feature these two iconic performers in the STAGES ‘Live' series at The Powerhouse Up late for VIVID Sydney. They are an essential part of Sydney's Gay heritage and elders of the community who must be celebrated and applauded for an immense contribution.The STAGES podcast is available to access and subscribe from Whooshkaa, Spotify and Apple podcasts.

Abner, who is African-American and Gay, says he proudly represents all aspects of himself in his work. He say it was empathy that led him to create SameSky Health, his company that works with health plans to change their approach to patients.

It envisions plans and systems that encourage dignity, autonomy and companionship.Abner Mason has spent decades working to reduce barriers to care faced by underserved people nationally and internationally, from the federal to the local level. He's a policy guru, first working with the Governor of Massachusetts before advancing to roles with President George W.

In Episode 92 of the Charity Charge Show, Stephen talks to Terry Beswick, Executive Director of GGBA, whose mission is to champion opportunity, development, and advocacy for our LGBTQ+ & Allied business community. Stephen and Terry Beswick talk about Terry's career in activism and the importance of listening to diverse communities so that strategies are informed by a wide range of lived experiences. Terry Beswick (he/him) has been executive director of the GGBA since October 15, 2021. At the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in San Francisco, he advocated for HIV/AIDS research and treatment with ACT UP, Project Inform, the Human Rights Campaign and the White House Office of HIV/AIDS Policy. After the advent of effective treatments for HIV, Beswick worked as a journalist for the Bay Area Reporter and other LGBTQ community publications. More recently, he spearheaded a successful campaign to preserve the Castro Country Club for the queer recovery community in San Francisco, co-founded the Castro LGBTQ Cultural District and co-chaired the LGBTQ Cultural Heritage Strategy. Beswick was a Community Grand Marshal for the 50th Anniversary San Francisco LGBTQ Pride Parade and Celebration in 2020 and served as Executive Director of the GLBT Historical Society from 2016 to 2021. Terry Beswick on creating sustainable change with a diverse community: If there's anything that I've learned throughout my career, it's that the LGBTQ community is kind of a misnomer. Since we're a collection of different communities and subcultures and what brings us together are our gender and sexuality differences from the "Norm" and the experiences that we've had around that. Therefore, bringing all these different communities and cultures together to have impact on creating change is often a challenge. What I've learned is that listening and collecting people's ideas to navigate the differences of opinion and approach is always important to overcoming the challenge of community organizing. San Francisco is notorious for being extremely divided around the best approach to effecting change and I think that listening allows the space for any new idea to emerge from the people who are most directly affected. That way the affected communities feel ownership over the solution. Directing things from on high has never worked, in terms of creating sustainable change.

Many of the people affected by the current global monkeypox outbreak are reported to be men who identify as gay or bisexual, or men who have sex with men. The virus can affect anyone, but in response to where the majority of cases are, public health officials are gearing their information toward communities of gay and bisexual men. And that has some saying that the messaging echoes back to the HIV/AIDS crisis and has the potential to stigmatize the gay community while missing others who are susceptible to the disease. We speak with Dr. Boghuma K. Titanji, physician and clinical researcher in infectious diseases at Emory University, about the lessons public health officials can learn from the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 80s and 90s.And Northwestern University journalism professor Steven Thrasher talks about his recent article for Scientific American, "Blaming Gay Men for Monkeypox Will Harm Everyone."In participating regions, you'll also hear a local news segment to help you make sense of what's going on in your community.Email us at considerthis@npr.org.

Spencer Tunick has been documenting the live nude figure in public, with photography and video, since 1992. Since 1994, he has organized over 100 temporary site-related installations that encompass dozens, hundreds or thousands of volunteers, and his photographs are records of these events. In his early group works, the individuals en masse, without their clothing, grouped together, metamorphose into a new shape. The bodies extend into and upon the landscape like a substance. These group masses, which do not underscore sexuality, often become abstractions that challenge or reconfigure one's views of nudity and privacy. The work also refers to the complex issue of presenting art in permanent or temporary public spaces. Spencer stages scenes in which the battle of nature against culture is played out against various backdrops, from civic center to desert sandstorm. In 2002 he started to work with standing positions for his group formations referencing traditional group portraiture. Now, for some installations, he adds objects that the participants are often holding or wearing and has included body paint. Spencer has and continues to make group installations/photographs elevating awareness of HIV/AIDS, LGBTQ rights, equality and climate change, among other issues. Near the end of installations, for the final setups, he sometimes separates the participants into smaller groups to make additional assemblages: sometimes by sex, sometimes by age, or even by hair color. However, no one is ever excluded from an installation because of the color of their skin, ethnicity, gender identity, sex, race, religion, or political affiliation. If you can make it to an installation you can participate, unless of course there are space limitations. Spencer could not make his art without the generosity of the participants. He is eternally grateful for their participation. He wishes he could credit everyone in his individual and group photographs but there are hundreds and thousands who have taken part collectively. In exchange for taking part, participants receive a limited edition print. Spencer's temporary site-specific photographic installations have been commissioned by the XXV Biennial de Sao Paulo, Brazil (2002); Institut Cultura, Barcelona (2003); The Saatchi Gallery (2003); MOCA Cleveland (2004); Vienna Kunsthalle (2008) and MAMBO Museum of Modern Art, Bogota (2016), among others.

And as promised, another episode to make up for last week. I think it's good to be aware that not every member of the LGBTQ+ community can be labeled a hero. There are in fact some villains...like many of the guys I dated in the past. Some of them were pretty villainous. One man though did something completely unthinkable and vile. The AIDS crisis may be overlooked in history classes but the disease ran rampant throughout our community. Today there have been wonderful advances in the medical world to help keep HIV/AIDS under control. Still, Daryll Rowe decided to weaponize his status to seek revenge on men he dated.

Activist and author Edafe Okporo ("Asylum: A Memoir & Manifesto") is a truly incredible human being. Born and raised in Nigeria when homosexuality was heavily condemned (but not yet criminalized), Edafe hid his sexuality by joining the ministry in college. Though he eventually left to become an activist and work at an HIV/AIDS clinic, everything changed in 2014 when homosexuality was made illegal in his country. Edafe details the harrowing story of how he was attacked by a mob and subsequently fled Nigeria...only to land in a U.S. detention center for months on end as a refugee. He describes the emotional whiplash he experienced going from life-threatening trauma to suddenly having to be "fabulously gay in New York," and how therapy has helped him on that journey.

Legislation making it lawful to smoke marijuana or consume cannabis-infused products for medical purposes in North Carolina cleared the state Senate on Monday evening. After no debate, the measure received bipartisan support by a vote of 36-7. The margin was similar to the outcome of an initial Senate vote last week that followed floor discussion. The bill now goes to the House, where chances for passage before this year's primary work session adjourns in a few weeks appear long. Speaker Tim Moore has said the issue may have to wait until next year. The legislation creates a system whereby someone with one of more than a dozen “debilitating medical conditions” — cancer, HIV/AIDS, epilepsy and post-traumatic stress disorder among them — can be prescribed cannabis by a trained physician. Users or their caregivers would have to receive a registration card from the state Department of Health and Human Services. A new state commission would issue 10 medical cannabis supplier licenses, each of which could open up to eight sales centers. Up to five independent testing labs would be licensed to scrutinize the pot and related-products sold. It would still be awhile before sales occur under the bill given required rule-making and licensing.

Next, the FDA must decide whether to authorize the vaccine made by latecomer Novavax, a protein vaccine that's made with a more conventional technology than today's U.S. options. Novavax shots are already used in Australia, Canada, parts of Europe and dozens of other countries. But U.S. clearance is a key hurdle for the Maryland-based company. FDA's vaccine chief Dr. Peter Marks said another choice in the U.S. may entice at least some vaccine holdouts -- whatever their reason -- to consider rolling up their sleeves. “We do have a problem with vaccine uptake that is very serious in the United States," Marks said. "Anything we can do to get people more comfortable to accept these potentially life-saving products is something that we feel we are compelled to do.” READ MORE: https://www.wcnc.com/article/news/health/coronavirus/fda-advisers-back-novavax-covid-19-shots/507-a2508a24-4476-4764-a52b-3465549b373a Watch Wake Up Charlotte each weekday morning from 4:30 to 7 a.m. on WCNC Charlotte, and as always, join the conversation on social media using #WakeUpCLT!

成功走過Omicron,新加坡是怎麼辦到的? https://www.cw.com.tw/article/5120913 這集來唸天下雜誌本期刊登的, 黃韻如學姊的文章。 新加坡採取的,是以「Protocols 1-2-3」作為整個醫療照護系統的架構,在「Living with COVID-19」的大前提之下,以不同情境將民眾分流: Protocol 1:自覺有明顯症狀者,可搭乘自用交通工具前往指定的公衛準備診所(Public Health Preparedness Clinics,PHPCs),或是選擇有提供遠距醫療問診服務的診所,由醫師針對臨床風險的高低來判斷臨床處置的流程。 若被醫師判斷為高風險,例如高齡長者、免疫功能低下等等,或是症狀嚴重的民眾,會以快篩及PCR同時進行檢測。有嚴重症狀(例如胸痛、呼吸急促、持續發燒)則是馬上轉介至醫院進行照護。沒有此類嚴重症狀的,則須在診所就醫之後馬上返家、一人一室隔離,等待PCR結果。 若是陽性確診者,衛生部會有專人聯繫、決定是否可以在家康復、或是需要進入照護中心。若檢測陰性,那麼則由診所醫師繼續提供照護。 在家康復的陽性確診者,除了未接種或未完全接種疫苗的80歲以上長者、3個月大以下的嬰兒、懷孕36週以上的孕婦、未接種或未完全接種疫苗的孕婦,都要進入72小時的一人一室居家隔離,每日監控體溫與血氧濃度(資料不須上傳),若有醫療需求,可以聯繫原本確診的診所醫師,或者經由遠距醫療服務來處置。期滿時以快篩自我檢驗,若陰性則可以恢復正常生活,若陽性則繼續居家隔離、快篩,直到陰性為止。 若居家隔離期滿7天 (已完全接種疫苗的成人或是12歲以下的兒童) 及14天 (未接種或未完全接種疫苗的12歲以上民眾)之後,無須檢測,即可恢復正常生活。 這些在家康復的確診者,需要經由加密簡訊上傳個人數位追蹤所記錄的數位足跡,以及個人和家戶成員資料,作為密切接觸者判斷的依據。這些被通報的家戶成員會在48小時之內接到健康風險通知,進行下一階段的自我管理。低風險者,會先以快篩檢測,快篩陽性者進入Protocol 2的處置,並且會在24小時之內接到手機簡訊通知,同樣必須上傳個人以及家戶成員資料以作為密切接觸者判斷的依據。 Protocol 2:自覺無症狀的確診者或是有輕微症狀的低風險民眾,必須立即停止所有社交活動以及上班上學,以檢測陽性當日起算為第一日,進入72小時的居家隔離期,在72小時期滿時以快篩自我檢驗,若陰性則可以恢復正常生活,若陽性則是繼續居家隔離、自我快篩,直到陰性為止。與上面相同,若居家隔離期滿7天(已完全接種疫苗的成人或是12歲以下的兒童)、14天(未接種或未完全接種疫苗的12歲以上民眾)之後無須檢測,即可恢復正常生活。若在居家隔離期間症狀加劇,則進入Protocol 1,可再度至公衛診所就醫或是聯繫緊急醫療網。 新加坡政府特別建議,如果是1歲以下的兒童、12歲以下有任何會影響心肺腦功能的先天性疾病或是高血壓糖尿病的兒童、70歲以上的長者、懷孕婦女、洗腎病患、HIV/AIDS病患、接受器官移植者、癌症病患、使用任何會減低免疫功能藥物者、在過去6個月內曾因為有任何因心肺肝腎腦疾病而住院治療者,就算是無症狀確診,還是需要就醫。 Protocol 3:密切接觸者,或是接到健康風險通知(Health Risk Notice,HRN)的民眾,進行5天的自我快篩監測週期,在24小時之內做第一次快篩,若是陰性則可以正常外出活動;若是無症狀陽性則進入Protocol 2;若是有不適症狀,則是進入Protocol 1。在5天內若要離家活動,必須每天出門前,在距離上一次快篩24小時之內再次快篩,到第5天快篩陰性後就解除HRN,報告不須上傳。 Protocols 1-2-3的設計,清楚對民眾以及第一線公衛診所進行溝通,讓確診民眾與接觸者的處理流程在三個情境之間動態接軌。台灣也可以參考新加坡的模式,由醫療端來進行第一線的分流判斷,讓分級轉診更加順暢。 台灣基層診所的普及,能夠作為第一線風險篩選的社區防疫前線,不一定要硬性透過公衛端例如衛生局匡列之後才能轉介,以減少因為匡列行政流程時間差而無法配合臨床病程演變的系統漏洞憾事。 歡迎追蹤前台大感染科醫師。04b的發聲管道! 我的電子名片 https://lit.link/linshibi 希望大家當我的種子教師,推廣正確的新冠衛教。科學防疫,不要只以恐懼防疫! 歡迎贊助林氏璧孔醫師喝咖啡,讓我可以在這個紛亂的時代,繼續分享知識努力做正確新冠相關衛教。 https://pay.firstory.me/user/linshibi Powered by Firstory Hosting

In a career spanning over two decades, five albums, numerous musical features in film and television and now a lifestyle brand, R&B singer-songwriter Goapele continues to make a mark in music with her soulful sound and introspective lyrics. Her iconic song “Closer,” which was first released independently in 2001, remains influential in R&B music today, inspiring artists like fellow Bay Area musician H.E.R. Raised in a social justice-driven household in Oakland, Goapele has been a voice for prison reform, HIV/AIDS awareness and other causes throughout her career. This week Goapele, who now resides in Los Angeles, returns to Oakland for a four-night stint at Yoshi's from May 19 to 22. We'll talk to Goapele about her upcoming shows, her childhood in the Bay, her music and more.
