I have been HIV positive for 32 years, beat chronic pancreatitis from Ziagen, endured recurring shingles, a heart scare, colon cancer and chemotherapy, and a couple mental health crisis'. I am a recovering addict. I spent a few years rioting in the streets with ActUp fighting for LGBT rights and a few more wearing dresses: entertaining, advocating and fundraising. I have been close to homelessness, and I have lived in wild abundance. I've experienced discrimination, unwarranted praise, cattiness from a lot of bitches cause I can be a bitch, volunteered my ass off even when I believed in the cause but not the leader, rinsed and then repeated, beat COVID-19, stood up to racism and discrimination of all kinds, never won but moved the needle, got out of bed so many times when I didn't want to, felt to be insignificant, less than and unworthy by my leaders, condemned for my progressive politics and allowed pride to interfere with me asking for help.
As a result, I have a few opinions and quite a bit to say. I have never been one to bite my tongue, but the most recent ugly mess in which our world finds itself is begging me to speak louder than ever.
I can no longer sleep peacefully at night until I start speaking, blogging and screaming again loudly.
Like it, loathe it, troll it, share it.
