I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

Welcome to National Gay Men's HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NGMHAAD),
September 27, 2012! NAPWA founded NGMHAAD in 2008 to help gay men remember how
much we have accomplished together in the fight against HIV/AIDS, remember the
quarter-million lovers and brothers we have lost, and renew our commitment to
ending what is now an endable epidemic.

NGMHAAD calls on gay men across the
United States to remember that the end of the HIV/AIDS epidemic may be in
sight, but the epidemic isn't over -- and men who have sex with men are still
at high risk. The number of gay men already living with HIV in this country may
be as high as 1 in every 8, so we have to protect ourselves. Play safe!

NGMHAAD calls on gay men to lead the
movement to end the epidemic. We know now how to do it. Routine HIV testing for
all, every 3 to 6 months for gay men and others in high-risk groups. Immediate
access to HIV treatment and support services for everyone who tests positive.
An end to the HIV stigma and homophobia that keep too many of us from even
getting tested. Because it's much harder for us to pass our virus on to others when
we are getting effective treatment.

And NGMHAAD calls on gay men to be proud. Love is good. Sex is
Our love is

Pride is power! Help NAPWA end this
epidemic -- BECAUSE WE MATTER!

It's no mystery that Hollywood isn't exactly a fruitful terrain for
black actresses looking to expand their portfolios beyond sassy love interest
parts and insufferable Tyler Perry movies. So kudos to the gifted
Kerry Washington for landing a formidable character in ABC's politically
charged, deftly conceived drama Scandal.

At the forefront minute by minute, Washington (who'll soon keep her hot streak going in Quentin Tarantino'sDjango Unchained)
is all imposing presence and commanding energy as a crisis management expert
tasked with keeping staff members inside the White House from monumentally
tarnishing their careers. Easier said than done, of course, but Scandal's
nonstop CNN-serving conflicts afford Washington with plenty of room to show and
