I can. I don't know any gay folks with AIDS, at least as far as I know. It's not the first thing you ask folks at church, at work, in the grocery line, or over the back yard fence.<quoted text>
...... yet most everyday straight people dont know anyone with aids...how many gays can say they dont know anyone with aids?
And as to whether or not straight people know people who have died from AIDS, that might depend on which country you live in. I believe some African countries have had their heterosexual populations decimated by it.
You see, AIDS doesn't discriminate based on sexual orientation, or race. And as long as a person is safe and careful with how they have sex and whom they have it with, they are unlikely to contract it, regardless of orientation.
