    Re: lol – God I hope you're just a terrible troll. Otherwise, that's sad. There are some people out there who are QUITE serious about killing gay people and to think otherwise is ignorant. You don't know who made the threats so you can't possible know if they were serious or not. Regardless, it's a classless, cowardly move to threaten someone you don't even know. And for what? Really, for what? I'll never understand the mindset of people who are so violently against something that doesn't hurt them in any way.

    This year, on a global level, we saw the media cover the criminalization of homosexuality in certain countries in Africa and explore how that anti-gay sentiment made it extremely difficult to do HIV work. We need to be able to make those same connections in the U.S

    It may come as a surprise to some that there are still many cases (and many states) in which it is legal to fire someone based on their sexual orientation and gender identity and expression in the U.S. And if people can be fired from their job, that means they can lose their financial stability. They become less able to look after their health care, and in some cases may even become homeless. A slew of reasons begin to emerge that can make those individuals more vulnerable to HIV.

    (Hint, hint: National LGBT organizations, perhaps now is the time to make HIV/AIDS a platform issue. If you do, the media might follow.) .By Kellee Terrell

    Are the lash backs because he's gay, or maybe because he made his sexual orientation announcement like it's important sports news, and not everyone cared to see it as headlines during the NBA playoffs?

    He's on the worst team in the NBA and the majority of the fans didn't even know this player existed before his announcement. Could have waited till the off season maybe.
