1985. HIV/AIDS: AIDS just a big joke to some journalists — 1 Comment

  1. Whenever I think about the mid 80s and AIDS I immediately think about the press. There is no doubt that the press are responsible for at leads hundreds of deaths and thousands of infections of HIV+ due to their bigotry, negligence and recklessness. I remember a discussion at the Catford, South London gay group in 1984 where some said that the disease was being used by the media to attack and undermine us and perhaps they were exaggerating the threat. As vulnerable teenagers we were all confused and frightened. Within months we saw first hand the effects of the disease. I survived and was not infected no thanks to the British press.
