HIV Has Been Cured in a Child for the First Time

HIV Cure: New Drug ‘Vacc-4x’ May Become First Functional Cure Against the Virus

The Man Who Had HIV and Now Does Not

This is HUGE news, and of course no one is talking about it because it is not a part of popular culture. For the first time in the history of the world, there is a possible preventative cure for one of the most deadliest viral diseases to have entered the human gene pool. There is hope for those who have been diagnosed with a disease that may have given them only 20 or so years to live. This breakthrough in the science/pharmaceutical community means that other viral diseases and genetic mutations that were once incurable are now on the table for complete eradication. I’m absolutely seething that no one is talking about this on the news 24/7, but instead talking about Miley Cyrus or the biggest videos on Vine.

Rest In Power, Vernita Gray. 
"She took charge in leading the Chicago gay liberation movement; serving lesbians and gay men in Chicago’s African American community. 
Vernita was active in forming the first Lesbian Caucus of the nascent Gay Liberation organization and the first Chicago lesbian newspaper Lavendar Woman. She pioneered the outreach to the Lesbian community becoming iconic as a role model.
Wonderfully, Vernita and her wife, Pat Ewert were the first same-sex couple married legally in Illinois, in November of 2013, after winning a court victory because of Vernita’s health situation. That started the ball rolling on additional court rulings that accelerated marriage in Illinois ahead of the original June 1, 2014 enactment of full marriage equality in the state.”

Rest in Power and Peace Vernita.
