Note to gay community: Don't celebrate World AIDS Day, Question it!

from my Facebook notes: Question World AIDS Day by Jonathan Barnett on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 at 4:45am To my well intentioned and thoughtful friends—especially my gay friends—who are promoting World AIDS Day today:  There is nothing wrong at all with remembering friends and loved ones lost to AIDS, but please take off the self-imposed […more]

"HIV" still causes EVERYTHING - part 2

I had my first parotid cyst at least 25 years ago, long before I ever tested “positive”. I blogged in March about being diagnosed with Bell’s palsy, presumably caused by “HIV”, simply because I tested positive. About that same time I began to experience what I thought were “swollen glands”, a condition I frequently had […more]

Pharmaceutical solutions to AIDS are not enough

A recent phone conversation with a friend is helping me to continue to refine what I want to focus on as an AIDS dissident activist. In a passionate outburst that revealed a new side of his character, he blurted out his dismay that our society in general and our gay community in particular seems to be willing to settle for a solution to AIDS that relies exclusively on drugs from the pharmaceutical industry.

Something of Interest

Note:  Speculation by some of my more rabid critics of my impending death just because I haven’t blogged for awhile is greatly exaggerated. My muse has been on vacation while I have been in one of my reflective modes (read: dealing with fatigue) lately. To tide my more avid readers over, here is a post […more]

Still angry after all these years

My role as a gay AIDS activist was first featured in a special report on AIDS in the Kansas City Times, July 8, 1989. I recently unboxed some of the early media accounts of my life as an openly gay AIDS activist in Kansas City.  The very first words in the very first article ever […more]

How about those HERVs?

Could it be that we are getting closer to a (more) unified alternative explanation for what causes “AIDS”?  There are several recently published articles, as well as conversations between the authors, that just may prove to be the impetus for such a epiphany. This is not about some startling new discovery.  It is the work […more]

Gay Related Intestinal Dysbiosis (GRID):  the video

  Tony Lance I’ve gotten to know Tony Lance personally the last few months. The more we visit, the more things we seem to discover we share in common. Both of us are gay men who came out just before, or in the very earliest years of the Gay Plague. We are both “poz” and […more]

Remembering Johnny

“Let’s go to lunch,” Tracy said, seeing how frustrated I was after discovering that I had miscalculated the distance needed to rough-in a door that I was helping her install in a newly framed wall. “Fine.  How about chile rellenos?” “I know this restaurant,” she said, “but I don’t remember the name… down on Southwest […more]

Gut health, gay men and AIDS

Tony Lance knows about gay men, because he is one.  He has spent years studying and developing a theory that explains how and why so many of us develop poor health and damaged immune systems. Lance proposes that the disease affecting so many gay men is actually caused by disruption and destruction of the intestinal […more]
