This Wednesday was a special tribute to World AIDS Day. 40 guys showed up and we read The History of HIV/AIDS. This is a timeline of significant events that took place in this history, OUR history. Each year was printed on a sheet of paper and we took turns reading the years chronologically, 1980-2010. 31 guys had a turn at reading a year. Some guys picked a significant year in their life to read, the year they turned positive, the year they graduated High School, etc. I think one guy picked the year he was born, damn that hurts.

What always amazes me is how well everyone reads this difficult material. Some of the words are tongue twisters(Non Nucleoside reverse transcriptase, Immunodeficiency, etc), but everyone does so well. Someone asked if we’re going to take this show on the road. Show me the road and let’s go.

I want to thank you all for indulging me in reading this work. I put this together because this is what I do for fun. I’m a geek at heart and I love doing stuff like this. I hope everyone enjoyed participating in this and learned at least one thing new.

In rememberance of World AIDS Day, the topic this Wednesday is the History of HIV/AIDS. We postponed this from December 1, 2010 so that everyone could take part in the candlelight vigil and still be part of this History presentation.

There’s a presentation and lots of poster to chronicle the last 30 years of HIV/AIDS, both the tragedies and the bright spots. So come join us and be part of this special presentation.
