HIV Crisis on the Texas-Mexico Border

HIV Crisis on the Texas-Mexico Border


let’s go back to the day that you found
out what’s the first thing that went through your mind am I gonna die I I
really thought I was gonna die growing up no one ever mentioned HIV to
me like it wasn’t in the schools it wasn’t the conversation held at home
like I said I grew up I’m latina I grew up in a Catholic household and we’re in
Texas it’s an abstinence-only state and so that conversation wasn’t had with me
or many of my peers do you think in this community that there is an HIV crisis oh
yeah waita cries yeah it’s a crisis right now the number one group getting
infected disproportionately a young gay and bisexual men known as men who sex
with men 24 younger I could have avoided this you know I never had any classes
that taught me to protect myself or anything so I’ll just going for my
parents is a pent up gave me a whole talk that if you’re gay you’re gonna get
beeps and that stigma is so alive and thriving in the valley my name is Paula Ramos and this is Latin
ex the word Latin ex has been given a lot of different meanings in the media
but at its core it stands for all the people within the Latino community who
struggle to fit into one identity which covers a lot in this series we need to
document the most pressing racial political sexual and cultural issues
facing one of America’s fastest growing demographics so we’re here at the us-mexico border
and Brownsville where we are is one of the 34 permanent checkpoints and what
you see is this right you see a blend of two cultures two identities two
languages two countries Brownsville itself is ninety percent
Latino a lot of people a lot of immigrants come here knowing exactly
what they’re stepping into they have hopes and dreams ambitions the one thing
they don’t know is that in Brownsville in this entire region there’s a huge HIV
epidemic particularly among the Latino community the Rio Grande Valley is one
of the most politically contentious regions in the country it also happens
to be a place where HIV is affecting increasing numbers of queer Latinos
according to the CDC HIV diagnosis decline in the u.s. from
2011 to 2015 yet rates of new HIV infections for
Latino men who have sex with men have increased in the Rio Grande Valley
specifically eighty five percent of people who contract HIV are Latino and
seventy five percent of new cases are male but why we wanted to meet some of
the people being affected by this crisis and learn more about the unconventional
means they are using to do something about it
Joey vadas also known as Beatrix Lestrange started a program called drag
out HIV in 2017 to use drag as a platform to confront social stigma
head-on hi my name is Jo : Elias I am a
community organizing coordinator for by the AIDS Council and I am also trying to
as beatrix estranged so if you’re like in brownsville says
heaven XP i like will do that happy now right yes especially here in downtown
bronzo on one end you have the international bridge that goes into
Mexico and then here you have a little Mexican restaurants like family-owned
yeah literally that goes on every point debacles on everything
if you come to Brownsville Texas you’ll have buckles in every corner no that’s
something I love about the city it’s like I feel like every corner we turn
into it’s like a celebration of our culture especially even here in town
like even in terms of religion and faith and spirituality yeah like you’ll have
like the immaculate like the cathedrals and then you have like the 80s the bull
any custom or spiritual spaces that are based on like traditional Mexican folk
healing so there’s like literally a little bit for everyone here so the
spoiler there’s my building there are so many people that are dedicated to
helping our community here in the valley but I feel like there definitely is a
crisis especially because in communities of color if you’re queer bisexual your
risk for HIV is significantly higher because both of the communities that
don’t have access to proper sexual education or access to reproductive
health care or health insurance you know facing all these kinds of barriers that
essentially prevent them from even knowing how to take care of themselves
I’ve had situations where I’ve had younger people coming to get tested who
don’t even know what the term vagina is on a young age but they are still having
sex right so it’s that bad what’s the story behind drag-out HIV how was it one
drug raid HIV was kind of born out of the work that I had been doing in the
community you know what what if we did this kind of program where we get to
train other drag queens to do what I do teach them that like drag can be more
than just nightlife once we put the call out we recruited a series of nine drag
queens and then those nine Queens were given the opportunity to participate in
like four different trainings and workshops to learn about different
issues affecting the valley the directive it’s work is essentially
the same thing as a work as a tester or someone who’s doing risk reduction in
our offices it’s just in a way that’s a little bit more accessible for people I
had already been doing like amazing events for different nonprofits
pretty much like a year into that someone from Bali AIDS Council reached
out because they were interested in hosting a series of RuPaul’s Drag Race
viewing parties but what the intention of having testing staff on-site and do
like a community outreach event at the same time and they were basically
looking for someone to host and that’s why I met Oscar Lopez when I first heard
doing this work I was borderline homeless didn’t really have a lot going
on I don’t have a degree but he definitely saw something in me and he
would definitely give me that opportunity we’re going through the
valley AIDS clinic to get a sense of what is causing the HIV epidemic here in
this region oh and the Rio Grande Valley to understand why Latinos are
predominantly affected by this one of the first things that you notice is that
there’s no signage at all that this is an AIDS clinic there’s no evidence
whatsoever in the streets that you’re walking into an AIDS clinic we have to
be discreet about who we are to protect our clients so Westbrook clinic is the
name of the clinics that we operate and that’s because just having the words HIV
or Sita or or AIDS on anything er yeah it scares people
it makes them worry about who will see them coming in here when you say here
where are we like what are we seeing right now so this is our largest of all
of our sites of our three sites so we have an in-house pharmacy we have
in-house x-rays in-house dentists in-house mental health care and therapy
we developed that way because we learned the hard way that when we referred them
out to other clinics other doctors inevitably somebody would notice them
that recognize them through a remember or somebody would accidentally
help them or even in some cases purposely do so just out of ignorance
that we’re working to to make a difference to change things to make it
better Oscar grew up in the Rio Grande Valley
and has been working in the public health field since the AIDS crisis of
the 1980s HIV affected me personally because when I was living here in the
river valley when we first started to see people died from aids-related causes
my job then was to offer condoms to go out to the community to get people to
take care of their themselves in their health but my job also after work was to
recover the bodies after they died because the funeral homes wouldn’t bury
them so that forever changed who I became and have you noticed a difference
since thirty years ago is this still the same deal down the valley that you saw
back then or have things changed in a lot of ways and a lot of unfortunate
ways it’s still the same in terms of the homophobia the stigma of the disease
people are afraid to tell their family members the the way women are treated
and and and not respected and they’re not cheeseball do you think in this
community that there is an HIV crisis particularly among Latino men oh yeah
wieszczyk right yeah it’s a crisis right now the number one group getting
infected disproportionately a young gay and bisexual men known as men who sex
with men 24 in younger this does impact women that I want people to realize that
our Latino men are disproportionately infected by HIV here for the valley for
example one out of every four young Latino males will be come HIV positive
in their lifetime within the next two years so religion is obviously such a
big part of Latino culture right even walking down this hall you see crosses
don’t I see we’d kind of mighty yeah right behind me so it’s it’s it’s
present how does religion how would you say religion is playing a role and sort
of fomenting these these stigmas it continues to perpetuate that the norm is
wait til you get married that being heterosexual is ideal that anything else
then heterosexual is an abomination you’re bringing a disgrace upon the
family do the associate being at least in Latino culture being queer with
having HIV yeah that one equals the other so it is late denisita exactly and
you get what you deserve for for breaking all those rules that you know
our family does not and take a listen to your stomach and no
stomach issues is nausea vomiting diarrhea constipation stomach pains or
anything and appetites good oh please my name is Michael I’m 26
I’ve lived here my entire life I’ve been positive for about three years one on
three years was Jill did you tell people immediately or did you wait no I waited
about two days because I let it settled in with myself first I made peace with
it first before I told anybody on the first person I told was my best friend
then the second person I told was my mom did you tell your father I told her yeah
here’s what third person I told him and he felt like failures because they had
like warned me because it kind of gave me a whole talk that if you’re gay
you’re gonna get babes and that it would all come down to this would you say
among latino gay men and Latino bisexual men um do you think people are taking
care of themselves do you think people take the steps to come to these clinics
I don’t think everybody does my I mean some people are scared to run into
somebody they know I mean I I would sometimes feel scared I would I would be
scared to come over to the clinic because I’d be scared to see Daniel and
I wouldn’t want them to think anything of me or he’s having sex or anything are
people open about their HIV status are people even open about their the fact
that they’re gay there are a few people who are open about their HIV status but
that’s very few there’s not a lot of people that I know that are positive but
I assume there’s they’re out there you know Brownsville is a place steeped in Latino
culture and I can see why many Latinos feel at home here but then there’s the
undeniable machismo and while stigma surrounding queer identity and HIV isn’t
always obvious it’s still felt by many in the community we stay Campion Sally
they look Latino surveys I think I saw a guy in a bulimia sequentially ya know looking at him I wanted to know more about what it’s like
to be clear in the valley Sebastian who’s also known as Luna
Lestrange started using drag less than a year ago as a way to empower the
community through education so now where are we driving towards right now we’re
going to my grandma yeah we’re going just gonna go have like breakfast I
guess are they do they know about yes as you were growing up how did you
wouldn’t we were extreme most of the time like when I was growing up I
couldn’t understand because it was about to like boys like I was always used to
like an girl okay so then when was the moment that you decided to stop hiding
it after I came back from the army I got yeah yeah yeah and then I was like you
know what – like I don’t need to hide Who I am
especially because after I came back like three four months later I started
doing jog so what do you feel like when you put on drag when I put on like Luna
it’s like a whole process because that first is still Sebastian they’re still a
little boy underneath but as soon as like
transformed into Luna I feel like so much power it’s an amazing idea to talk
about the issues and drug because people are gonna listen they want to hear what
this big monster it has to say you know that way so you’ve always had a you’ve
always been close is that how you would describe your relationship very very
close yeah it’s kind of like we’re like stuck together from like II still don’t
believe oh yeah I’m like a big mama’s boy it’s just a bond that we have and
Erica you know in a lot of Latino families there’s always this expectation
right that the Sun not get Dean I guess had much all right that they have to
sort of grow up to be these not very exactly he’s much us is that sort of the
vision you had of Sebastian when he was a kid
no it was like whatever makes him happy that’s gonna make me happy do you think
that’s something that most Latino families think no a la cultura the you
know me I can Oh siempre es de que no a silver one tiene que ser hombre y tiene
que se las velas como era la paz pero and luckily I do peer circle of me
Horace lo que la our Feliz my Oh Sara me Feliz
you know it’s also a llama let’s have a menos we work on it see she put you on

ustedes no area viendo VV Durst experience yeah like como se puede
cambiar de su se puede cambiar en la manera como estamos Joey Sebastiaan
al-haram poco más con la gente a breeze más un poco elemental edad de como Dyson
del machismo Dec todos podemos un poquito se habla de esto aqui Ayanda
Kiera scar okay Rivero can you so we’re in mcallen which is actually
one of the poorest cities of America but it’s in this most unexpected background
that we’re about to go to drag out HIV which is a party that brings together
the community to empower them to motivate them and to inspire them to get
tested I do expect this to be more than just a party and actually a space we’re
really important conversations are taking place how long does it take to go
through this whole process standard beer trucks phase takes like an hour and if I
have time I’ll like go and do detailed work but stuff like drag our ATVs like a
passion project so I want to make sure that I try to look my best but I also
want to make sure that I make time for all the other stuff like running the
show and making sure the queens are on time and making sure the DJ’s on time
and making sure the space is comfortable for the queens that everyone has what
they need so tell me a little bit about what happens outside of this room what
is born walking it’s a fun way to do HIV outreach and prevention okay I mean
that’s not really that clear it is because people feel so much more
confident or they let down their wall one day see a drag performer because
sometimes being in an office in a clinic seeing all these like sexual health
messages that can be like overwhelming for people but if you’re at a bar it
just makes it so much easier for these little process and even if you’re not
here for the octave as part of it at least your senior drug show but
hopefully you left with something more than just this is just a drag show
well many Latinos who are HIV positive are still hesitant to talk publicly
about it I met one person living with a disease
who was willing to speak up about the challenges and barriers he faced my name
is Adrian Castellanos people call me Adan I’m 25 years old I’m from the Rio
Grande Valley I’m an intersectional activist and I’m HIV positive these are
all kind of taken at different times this is after I found out what what went
through your mind how do you do find out so I had been sick a few months leading
up to before I found out and they got to the point where one day I got home from
work and I collapsed at home like I just I couldn’t walk anymore my mom found me
and so she drove me to the hospital and the next day the doctor came in he kind
of like paused for a second and I was like what’s going on and he said you has
a positive for HIV but he said your HIV has progressed so we’re diagnosing you
with AIDS basically my muse is so much that he don’t like I was on my way up
why do you think it took you so long to know that you were HIV positive yeah the
health literacy level in the area and I think just in the state in general it’s
really low these conversations aren’t happening on top of that this is a
really poverty-stricken area and so I couldn’t afford to take time off of work
to go and get tested for a lot of people I think everywhere but especially in
this area a lot of people it’s either do you want to be able to put food in a day
or just continue being sick and hopefully deal with it later
explain to me how exactly how you’re turning this experience right in your
journey into empowering other people you know I I’ve been really fortunate to
have a really strong support system you know my family is on board and I’m able
to say like yeah I mean should be positive and I’m gay and I’ve been
through these things and I’m still here but I know that not everybody is lucky
to have that and so that’s kind of why I do the work that I do and I put myself
out in such a public way because we need to we need to have that conversation
it wasn’t happening before so I’m gonna do it
how’s everyone doing yeah makes a nice father please since I got HIV supports
all one who knows her status raise your home’s if you don’t know your status or
if you’ve been questioning your status because maybe you hooked up with someone
or you know whatever happened our team I beli AIDS Council is here for you wait
who hears on prep prep is the pill that you take once a TA that helps prevent
you from becoming infected with HIV if you’re exposed so if you didn’t know
that now you do until the thing is even if this message isn’t for you tonight
take it home to someone that you know because maybe they need to hear from
someone close to them and maybe hear that person tonight so again thank you
guys so much for being here who’s ready for some fucking drugs make some noise when you’re queer brown and Latin X
you’re constantly made to feel like you need to apologize for it I’m doing dry
it’s your way of taking all that power back and not having to apologize for who
you are to me your clinic is present everywhere in the valley is that
something that you imagined 30 years ago that this clinic could become such an
important support system for so many beyond these walls back then there was
no chance to imagine because we were just about saving who he could and
burying who had passed but I do believe that there is a greater purpose for us
and what we’re doing now and what we’re seeing is all these wonderful young
empowered individuals they’ve got their own support groups they’ve got their own
organizations up and running and we have to as a community as a whole support the
LGBT community on the us-mexican border so that we can survive and we will
survive and everybody gets the bail out of their house stops being afraid stops
being embarrassed and can’t test it just open up the little door listen we’ll
take care of the rest these potatoes tonight by Beatrix
estranged it’s been a pleasure and an honor being here
sharing the space forever you guys are loved you are important
you matter thank you for being a part of this journey it’s been a pleasure please from the outside the stats the stigma
the culture went to an HIV epidemic that sees no hope but the second that you
actually step into this town you realize that the valley is actually at the
forefront of change and that’s because there’s a group of Latin acts that are
using the most unconventional platform to change people’s minds right to open
people’s eyes so I I do feel optimistic about the way that the valley will
continue to be at the forefront of change you

  1. Sorry but women are affected because there are definitely men out there who messed with men on the low and still be messing with women and that’s how you affect women because you can’t wrap it up

  2. How can any gay man in 2018 say that they didn't know anything about aids? Stop lying. Ur no victim. If you want to live like idiots and not protect yourself then deal with it. Dont try to blame someone else or society. Ur the only one to blame. If your gay and have unprotected sex in 2018 ur an idiot…

  3. The scary side of aids transfering is some men who are HIV positive seek out negs which are negitive testing people. And tell them that they are clean and say theyll wear a condom but they break it to give the person aids. Most times they will have sex with them multiple times to make sure their infected. It's a terrible thing and I really hope it stops one day.

  4. The lack of sex education is state sanctioned violence against the black and brown community. The state is not on your side…

  5. "I never had classes to tell me about protection"….please stfu…you knew what to do but you chose not too….#condoms allllll the excuses

  6. This is even worse than the death of FRADDDDDDDDDIE MAUR-CURR-EYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. When you start acting like ‘animals’ and going against teaching of God and practice of nature, consequences are there and very severe.

  8. I don’t believe that those people didn’t heard of HIV. There is the internet, etc. Besides I’m pretty sure they watch gay porn, and if they have time for that, then they definitely have time to protect themselves.

  9. ill never use Latinx smh I use Latina and Latino and we are Latin that is our whole you are either woman or male weather you or trans or lgbt you are still woman or male nothing else if you want to be a woman and your male trans into that than your a woman if your a woman who wants to be a man than your Latino its that simple I won't use latinx your either or and we all together are Latin LATIN

  10. Wanting to blame not being educated on how to prevent the spread of Aids! Oh come on, with the rise of the LGBT movement an all the access to the web with all the info you need for any disease. Before kids get in middle school they know about STDS including HIV. Bet these guys know how to get on the web and go to chat rooms but none of them talk about protecting themselves or a partner against STDS. Another attempt by using the word crisis instead of an epidemic for political view points. It's here an it's gonna stay just like all other STDS. Might just be what will wipe out the population problem along with abortion of course. Give man enough time and he will destroy himself

  11. I don't know whats more stupid, the term Latin X or the young guy saying "no one told me about HIV" Dude, you weren't born in the 1940's. LatinX LOL doesn't exactly sound positive.

  12. As someone who lived in the valley, I can say that there are many reasons why HIV is common and that's because of ignorance and sexual promiscuity. This is the same area where girls are legitimately surprised when they get pregnant, despite knowing they did not use a condom. Parents don't talk about sex education, and if their child is gay, they definitely won't talk about it. I had to learn on my own through psychology courses and the internet.

  13. People know but they choose to do this. A mistake can turn into a life of sorrow. 😥 religion has nothing to do with this, it's a person's Choice. Duh breaking rules in anything causes problems…

  14. i came here cause i saw Paola on tv and she’s SO GODDAMN HOT LIKE
    HOLY SHIT SHES SO FUCKING HOT but ended up getting informed with an HIV epidemic that deserves more attention!!

  15. There is way to much information out there for people to be this irresponsible its 2019. Wake up. He doesn't look sick, he looks healthy, he said he isnt sick..stop putting YOUR LIFE and health in someone else's hand…..please..

  16. As someone who lives in the valley I appreciate the attention brought to the aids/hiv crisis but I hate that the valley was showed like this. we do have poor people but at the same time we have rich neighborhoods and a vibrant nightlife and high end restaurants with amazing shopping malls and huge monthly events for the community. We have a university and several colleges and some high ranked schools ( I went to a health/medical based magnet high school and my mom is a Nurse so of course I know a lot about medical issues and problems in the community so I can’t speak for those who went to lower performing schools) so next time you come don’t just get videos of empty alleyways and abandoned buildings go downtown and see people party on the weekend or drive around McAllen and see all the big beautiful houses and expensive cars because in actually most of the “poor” communities live either in the outskirts or isolated areas in towns

  17. This saddens me a lot. I predominantly identify as being of african decent, but some of my first friend were Mexicano. The first elementary school I went to was predominantly Mexican. I loved Mexican culture just as much as I loved African culture.

  18. The point of this video is to shed light on the resurgence of HIV in the marginalized communities, this story is impactful because its highly concentrated on Latino communities and the resurgence of HIV

  19. These degenerates shoot up heroin and smoke meth then proceed to have unprotected sex. Let them die. No excuse.

  20. So his parents warned him about aids maybe not in the right way but he knew this disease was out there and he didn’t protect himself..

  21. The thing about this, it's not only gays, there men who go have sex with guys, and then they go back to their wife or girlfriend then their wife or girlfriend gets STD's.

  22. I urge women to create a grinder account to see if their man is being discreet and sleeping around with the same sex.

  23. Seeing all those brochures in the doctors offices aren't overwhelming, they're signs and clues to take care of yourself in order to prevent diseases.

  24. Lol statistics are bullshit. The rgv is 95% hispanic ergo anyone who gets aids are going to be Hispanic. It's not like the white 3% of white ppl in the rgv are given amazing care in comparison to Latinos. Also no racism exists in the rgv because everyone is the same race

  25. So parents preached abstinence and children didnt listen and got hiv. But if Parents tought dont have sex or protect yourself or you get hiv and all of a sudden kids listen and dont have sex? Straight up either way you didnt listen and you took risks and got it. Everyone takes risks in life thinking that wont happen to me and then when it does they blame others. Its not lack of education in this day in age, its not lack of health care or finances. Its doing things you shouldnt do or not taking precautions. I can understand someone saying i honestly took precautions always protected and listened and some how i got it. Even then it happens which is why people say abstinence is the safest. In all honestly no one is safe from hiv it can be transferred without sexual intercourse. Its just that majority is transfered through sexual intercourse. The majority of People blaming others for getting hiv need to stop its through no fault but their own. They are not all victims some but most are not. They did what they wanted and got what they got.

  26. Whats next? I didnt know smoking caused cancer, i didnt know crack kills, i didnt know there were bad people in the world that would kill me or rob me. I didnt know i could crash a car, i didnt know i could drown in the ocean or be eaten by a shark, i didnt kbow a boat could sink, i didnt know i could put bug spray on and stop mosquitoes from biting me, i didnt know a poisonous snake could kill me. I didnt know i could get pregnant if i had sex. Its ridiculous blaming others for the shit that happens to you or the mistakes you make. We can all feel sympathy for these things but to blame others for why it happened to you by simply playing dumb as if you didnt know is beyond ridiculous.

  27. This is a consequence of SIN! We cannot live an abominable lifestyle and not reap what we've sown! This is a just consequence for violating the very Word of God! May the Lord Himself have mercy on their souls!

    Romans 1:18-28 King James Version (KJV)

    18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
    19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
    20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
    21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
    22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
    23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
    24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    King James Version (KJV)

  28. Some if this sounds ridiculous. The girls have never heard the word 'vagina' but they're having sex? How old are these people? Also you're gay and having sex in 2019 but don't know how to prevent AIDS? Even little kids know about condoms.

  29. The comments I am reading can be compared to the Tuskegee Air Man. Is it morally correct to think that everyone one knew that Antibiotic cured Syphilis and since everyone else knew they should have known too. Education can allow the human race to thrive beyond measure. Ignorance is not blissful nor dismissing things that we do not understand is wonderful. I took a hiv class which was necessary for nursing and I am glad I did. Everyone has the right to disagree about other people sexuality, but if everyone knows about God…. Would it be a correct statement to say that a person sexuality is between the person and God. It is better to love than to hate.

  30. Lotta sad ass trolls in these comments.. you self-righteous judgmental assholes ought to be ashamed of yourselves. What tf is wrong with ppl?!?., no one gives af about anyone but themselves or anything that doesn’t think, act &/or look exactly like they do.

  31. I see these videos all over the place and what's one thing that is a common they're mostly f**** gays that habit someone is reading the Bible and doing God's work and it is AIDS

  32. AIDS was a bio weapon that was manufactured by man to wipe out the human race. Don’t ever believe it was from a third world country or gays.

  33. Taking NO ACCOUNTABILITY for their risky behavior and lying by saying they didn't know about HIV/AIDs. I call BS! Did you not know about STDs either???

  34. You really need someone telling you to put on a condom and what a condom is?! OMFG, are you kidding. Not even. Gay men are sexually overactive and they like d**k too much. Point blank period.

  35. This was so disturbing! What do you want the larger public to do? I mean … wouldn’t the easiest way to combat this would be to stop having gay sex? Obviously … obviously it’s deadly. I mean it just is. I think the wrong answer is to promote the lifestyle as okay and without the honest truth about consequences. I mean … it’s awful but individuals have to first take personal responsibility for their bodies and for other people that they carelessly infect.

  36. Do you really think telling a kid to wear a condom is going to work cuz they're just going to do the same thing with sex if you tell him not to have sex or still going to do it same thing with condoms they're just not going to wear it because it feels better without it and everyone knows that I'm guilty of this myself if you want my answer you should really get to know someone before you actually have sex with them stop having sex on the first day

  44. HIV/AIDS is on the rise because over the past 10 years the negative stigma or the "horrific" reality of AIDS has been whitewashed and the effects of the illness are now taught to be minimal and not lethal. @ 8:00 a little more of that message will decrease HIV/ AIDS. Condoms and Prep need to be handed out for free in every high school and college in America.

  45. Aids is a man made disease. Did it come outta Africa yes but NOT from PEOPLE or ANIMALS it's because the laboratory it was created from is in Africa. The elite are responsible for this yet nobody will ever do anything about it.

Marry one man to one woman, remain faithful and that eliminate this crises.

  47. Latin X ?
    Why is the human race so full of shit.
    If you self educate yourself. Read philosophy. Read history. Take a small moment of your life to learn the past. You would self realize and move above this pathetic label or labels like Latin X … so stupid .. bunch of hipsters and new gen pussies

  52. Why do these men insist on acting and talking like women? There is nothing wrong with choosing to be gay and choosing to have gay sex, but why do they insist on talking and behaving like women? You're a man, act like a man!

  53. And being gay is 100% a choice. No one is born gay, being gay requires an action. You must have gay sex in order to be gay. You must have sex with the opposite sex in order to be heterosexual. It is a choice. You could have gay thoughts but if u never choose to act on those desires u r not gay. If you're born gay then people r also born killers or born murders. If you're born that way, how can we punish a murderer if they're born that way? No one is born gay or a born killer. These r actions that require choices.
