Like all things Castro, it was a sin in the real world of gay people: it was dated.

    The gay community is supposed to be fashion forward and avant garde. The Castro is neither and the nudity didn't help. In fact, the entire city is in a time warp. The women look like they dress out of attics and thrift stores, and the men look like old ads for Levis, except that Levis used younger and better looking people. A growing problem in San Francisco is that with rents so high, it can neither draw youth nor keep seniors. All of the people who made San Francisco famous in our time, are either dead or living in Oregon or Arizona.
    This is what happens when your group or location gets associated with a particular history and can't shake it. I have seen the same problem at universities, especially in "avant garde" art and music departments. Because of funding cuts and the general lack of mandatory retirement, the tenured professorate is quite aged right now, and the last time some of these boneheads were truly avant garde was when Yoko Ono was getting her dress cut by strangers and John Cage was hammering nails into piano strings. They were also doing a lot of acid back then (courtesy of the CIA). Now these faded has-beens are clinging to tenured university positions, and their introductory seminars about the "avant garde" are actually as retro as an aqua or "harvest" gold refrigerator.

    Still some folks want to stick their head in the sand and proclaim that AIDS/HIV is not predominately a Homosexually spread disease. The silly notion that gay marriage or what 2 adults do on their own terms doesn't affect me is helping to kill thousands of people a year, even with advancements in HIV inhibitors.
    African-Americans make up 12.6% of the US population and 44% of all new HIV infections in 2009.

    I'll bet that if you tracked it by musical instrument, then guitarists would be at the top.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    According to CDC stats in the article which only lists new diagnoses in 2009 for Black MSM it's 37% and that's part of the 2 %.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    A sheep is a sweater on the hoof.

    I liven In San Anslemo. Marin Co...and haven't been to "the city" since the "turn of the century" and then only to Golden Gate Park.

    The hppies in Mill Valley and Fairfax....I see all the time.

    these non running streakers were from act up? they need to change their group's name to ACT OUT...but that would be asking too much I suppose
