Michael Weinstein Quotes



Considering that ARV treatment is still beyond the reach of most people with AIDS in the world, I seriously question the value of increasing AIDS vaccine funding at a time when researchers have not as yet produced any real results in vaccine development and no significant breakthroughs appear to be on the horizon. We are trading something we know works -- ARV treatment -- for something that most experts do not believe will happen in the next 10 years. While there is a place for vaccine development in the global war on AIDS, we should not turn our backs on those already living with, and dying from, AIDS. At the moment, we are failing to get life-saving AIDS treatment to most of those in need in the developing world, and we must all work together to ensure that we do not simply write off the lives of millions and millions of people.

We are astounded that the owners of these commercial sex venues would even attempt to pull a stunt like this just to get out of complying with pretty straightforward and prudent public health regulations safeguarding their patrons. These venues should be an important place for HIV prevention providers to offer testing and outreach services to a high-risk population in order to try and break the chain of infection here in Los Angeles. The print ads for several of these establishments running in the current issues of Frontiers and In Los Angeles Magazines, two respected LA area gay publications, put the lie to the owners' claim that these are not commercial establishments where sex takes place.
