Ronnie MacKay sat thru our Albany HS classes, composing on huge sheets of score paper spread over his desk. So brilliant that our teachers never complained! Fantastic pianist who played oboe in our marching band & viola in orchestra. Great friend of the family.
It took Ronald Reagan 4 years to utter the word "AIDS" in public. Countless people died and gay men were stigmatized when they referred to AIDS as "the gay plague". They treated it as a fucking joke.
America is, and always has been, a fucking disgrace.
SHARE recognizes World AIDS Day . #WorldAIDSDay is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), show their support for people living with HIV, and remember those who have passed away.
