    INTRODUCTION Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections acquired from another person mainly through the pathway of sexual activity. STDs are very common and are responsible of a heavy burden to public health in many countries. Luckily, these diseases are treatable. Some of them are curable, and most importantly, all of them are preventable. In the United States, about 20 million new sexually transmitted infections occur every year. That means that the average American has a 6% annual probability of getting an STD. Of course, this probability varies widely depending on many factors, and homosexual intercourse tends to be highly placed...

    On December 1, the 21st annual “World AIDS Day” was observed around the globe – particularly in schools and on college campuses. Except for “Pride Month” in June, it is the LGBT movement’s biggest ideological push on society. It is also the most dishonest – in a deadly way. LGBT activists, and their enablers in the medical establishment, hope that playing the sympathy card will cover up the fact that the biggest risk for getting HIV/AIDS is still anal intercourse – the prime sex practice of “men who have sex with men” (i.e., “gays,” bisexual men, and other men who...

    A state senator from Minnesota says he's the victim of "revenge porn" perpetrated by a "former friend" who sent explicit images to legislative colleagues. Democratic Sen. Scott Dibble says he's been harassed for the past five months by a man with whom he had an intimate, virtual relationship. Dibble, who is married, said the man sent private photos, videos, and text messages to fellow lawmakers on Friday. A spokeswoman for the Minnesota's Democratic Farmer-Labor Party, Ellen Anderson, confirmed that lawmakers received such messages.

Our law enforcement sources say the vest is reserved for inmates who are violent, suicidal or at risk of being attacked by other prisoners. We're told Buck is not suicidal. Ed Buck, the California Democrat megadonor accused of running a drug den, showed his face in court Thursday, the first time he's been seen since being busted on felony charges. Ed appeared in court for the first time Thursday, wearing a blue jumpsuit, but he did not enter a plea. Buck is charged with 3...

    2020 presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg criticized LGBT media for having an agenda when they cover his campaign and said that he can no longer read it and be himself. Buttigieg appeared Wednesday on SiriusXM's "The Clay Cane Show," where he was asked about divisions within the gay community — he said the constant minutia and fractured opinions driving LGBT publications finally pushed him away.

    NBC News (By Reuters) ^ | Sept. 12, 2019 | By Reuters
    A surge in "chemsex" parties, where people spend days getting high on drugs and having sex with scores of partners, is re-fueling epidemics of HIV among gay men in European towns and cities, doctors say. Despite much higher risks of contracting the virus that causes AIDS, as well as other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), users search online "hook-up" apps like Grindr for tags such as "high and horny" or "party and play" to find others wanting drug-heightened and often anonymous and unprotected sex. The result, AIDS experts say, is that in cities across Europe, HIV is spreading rapidly among men...

    In 1969, Forest Hills was a long way from Christopher Street, and a bizarre incident of vigilante tree chopping showed just how far. Only days before the Stonewall uprising in Greenwich Village, a mob of some 20 local men descended on the southern edge of Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Using power saws and axes, they leveled a grove of trees that was known as a gay cruising spot. According to a New York Times report at the time, “15 dogwood trees, 11 London planes, a number of wild-cherry trees and other greenery” were felled. The parks department estimated the trees...

    Ed Buck, the California Democratic megadonor suspected in the deaths of two black men who suffered fatal crystal methamphetamine overdoses in his home 18 months apart, is now facing allegations of human trafficking and revenge porn, according to a new report. The Daily Beast reported that the family of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore has made the new allegations as part of an ongoing civil case against Buck, who has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic Party candidates in California and is well known in LGBTQ political circles. Moore died of a methamphetamine overdose in July 2017. He was found...

    ...But when it comes to historical revisionism, gays are the worst offenders. Most Americans still believe Matthew Shepard, the world’s favorite ‘hate crime’ victim, was killed because he was gay. In fact, it had nothing to do with his sexuality. He was killed during a robbery and drug deal gone terribly wrong, and he was even friends with one of his killers, a gay-for-pay prostitute. Even the bar that President Obama declared a national historic landmark isn’t the location of the original Stonewall, which is an abandoned nail salon next door. Today, lesbians and Marxists have commandeered the gay rights...

Presenting their findings at the 2019 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) in Seattle, researchers analyzed data from two cohort studies to parse patterns behind the existence of comorbidities among HIV-positive individuals.

    The Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg wants to start a family with his husband, Chasten, and says that could happen if he makes it to the White House. “I don’t see why not,” the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, said in a Father’s Day television interview that also marked his first wedding anniversary. Buttigieg was little known nationally before he began his campaign for president earlier this year, but has seen his star rise in recent months, ranking alongside Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren in one Iowa poll last week. *** Buttigieg told CNN’s State of the Union that “it...

    Other countries are taking steps to atone for their shameful past treatment of L.G.B.T. people. The United States should too. The New York Police Department apologized last week to the gay community for the 1969 raid of the Stonewall Inn, the fallout of which is widely credited with spurring the contemporary gay rights movement at home and abroad. Timed to coincide with Stonewall’s 50th anniversary, the statement by Commissioner James P. O’Neill said in part: “The actions taken by the N.Y.P.D. were wrong — plain and simple” and “the actions and the laws were discriminatory and oppressive, and for that,...

    One of the indescribable aspects of being a member of a minority group is knowing that things are better than they have ever been and, simultaneously, not good enough. The LGBTQ community has won the right to same-sex marriage and achieved unprecedented visibility in politics, media and entertainment. Yet we still lag far behind the straight and cis population when it comes to mental health, substance abuse and HIV rates. Travis Salway is an epidemiologist trying to close this gap. In 2014, he discovered that in Canada, suicide had surpassed HIV as the leading cause of death among gay and...

    EL PASO —A transgender woman from El Salvador died after falling ill at a private Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center in New Mexico, officials said Sunday, drawing new scrutiny to a facility that has faced allegations of mistreatment of gay and transgender detainees. Johana Medina Leon, 25, died on Saturday at Del Sol Medical Center in El Paso, ICE officials said. She had been taken to the hospital complaining of chest pains on Tuesday at the Otero County Processing Center. Earlier that day, she had requested an HIV test, which came back positive, officials said.

    “I was just so emotional just because it was my happiest place, being with him next to the storms,” Joey Krastel said of the engagement. A massive tornado in Kansas may seem like one of the most unlikely — and certainly one of the most dangerous — places for a marriage proposal, but for experienced storm chaser Joey Krastel, it was a real and exhilarating way to show his love for his boyfriend. Krastel, a meteorologist and risk analyst for the Maryland Emergency Management Agency, saw his first tornado when he was four. After getting over his initial fear, he...
