The topic this Wednesday June 1, 2016 is the 35th anniversary of AIDS. It was on June 5, 1981 that the first report of AIDS was reported in MMWR, five cases of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) among previously health young men in Los Angeles. All of the men were described as “homosexuals”, two had died.

We’ve come a long way since those dark days. We’ve lost many, but we’ve survived.
