jon

Born in 1956, I was born in the sign of Cancer. Raised on a farm just north of Colby, Kansas, in a moderately religious American Baptist family of eight. I have been a Jesus Freak, an illicit drug user (cocaine, crystal and pot), a heavy tobacco user and diagnosed with AIDS. All past tense now. My history also includes a record of human rights activism and even a run for city council. I have been in a long-term relationship with the same man since 1979.

Update #3 August 14, 2009 After months of delay, Iraqi LGBT has finally published a financial accounting for funds raised and spent. Michael Petrelis has been far more active than me in following this matter, so once again I’ll just refer interested readers to his report here. It’s a relief to know that donations requested […more]

Those poor affluent gays

Gays and lesbians are far more affluent as a group than their hetero counterparts. That’s been an accepted marketing mantra for decades. I know. When I worked for a gay newspaper in the 1990s we used various “research” reports that gave the numbers. Even then I puzzled about how these research marketing firms got their […more]

For some reason the blogger known as disinter has linked to my blog for a video he had found interesting entitled HIV = AIDS Fact or Fraud? (Note: that link is no longer valid. Try this one instead, or Google the video title.) This 1996 video is rather dated, but still worth viewing for those […more]

I'm  positive

More than ten years ago I wrote about what I was thinking and feeling immediately after I got my diagnosis of “HIV-positive”. What I wrote then shows how I was once a fervent believer in the mainstream AIDS cult. Since then I have come to a dissident perspective on my own, and was actually surprised […more]

Marketing AID$ is big bucks (updated)

It is not just about saving lives or finding a cure. It’s very much about making money, and AIDS treatments have long been considered a global marketing opportunity. Mainstream AIDS proponents hate to have this issue brought up and would like to pretend that no one is getting rich from the current test-everyone-and-give-them-drugs public health […more]

Another victim of AIDS treatments dies

This post is for Seth Kalichmen and Peter Staley and joe.by.god and all the other AIDS drug pushers who so brutally bashed Christine Maggiore when she died recently.

Last Exit interviews Celia Farber

And in terms of me and the media, I guess I’m looking at the media and saying, you are not exactly in great shape, are you? I might be in better shape than you. Because of this bullshit, because they have not spoken to people. They formed this tower for themselves and really just didn’t […more]
