George H. W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States, died on Nov. 30, just hours before the start of World AIDS Day. He was 94.

Bush is being viewed through the lens of the current virulently homophobic, transphobic, misogynist and racist administration as one of the last “moderate” Republicans: A man who would cross the aisle as a brave bipartisan and indeed did so to vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016 because of his grave fears about Donald Trump’s candidacy.

I was racing my motorcycle down I-95 in Pennsylvania in the summer of 2007 as words and statements from years of conversion therapy repeated in my thoughts. Sinner. Sexual deviant. Doomed to hell. You’re not a woman; you weren’t born one and you’ll never be one.

I hit the throttle. My bag shifted and I reached back to steady it. The next thing I remember is lying on the side of the road and praying for death.

Newtown Township approves antidiscrimination measure

Newtown Township’s board of supervisors unanimously approved an ordinance to protect LGBTQ individuals on issues of housing, employment public and accommodations.

The ordinance was approved with a 4-0 vote, with one supervisor not in attendance. The measure was modeled on the anti-discrimination ordinance enacted in Doylestown last year, and is part of a trend of Pennsylvania municipalities enacting LGBTQ antibias policies in the absence of a statewide law. A Human Relations Commission will be set up in Newtown Township to settle issues on a municipal level without having to go to the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission.

The Delaware Valley Legacy Fund is looking to continue to fund programs and services for the LGBTQ community with its annual holiday toy-giving event, TOY, which doubles as a celebration of the organization’s 25th anniversary.

It’s been 30 years since World AIDS Day was founded at the 1988 World Summit of Ministers of Health for AIDS Prevention.

For 2018 World AIDS Day, the educational theme is “Know your status.”

Living with AIDS.

When I became the first female journalist writing about HIV/AIDS 35 years ago, that phrase was unimaginable.

Now, on World AIDS Day 2018, the disease that once decimated my generation of gay men has become, for most in the West, a chronic illness.
