The ideal thing would be to have a 100 percent effective AIDS vaccine. And to have broad usage of that vaccine. That would literally break the epidemic.
Any charity that aids or supports trying to find a cure for cancer is very close to my heart. My mom had cancer multiple times, so it's something that I can relate to.
The AIDS virus is not more powerful than God.
My work with AIDS patients started right at the beginning of the epidemic, totally unplanned and spontaneous, as all my work had proceeded in the previous two decades, if it were not already my whole life-style! In the early eighties, we knew very little about this peculiar disease.
We need men and women to sit down and talk to each other about sex honestly and openly. That would help us fight Aids so immediately. But our lack of communication is hugely problematic.
Wouldn't it be great if you could only get AIDS by giving money to television preachers?
I know one man who was impotent who gave AIDS to his wife and the only thing they did was kiss.
Anyone that's involved in development has discovered that all the good work that's been done in development has been undone by the AIDS emergency.
You've got to watch the politics of AIDS. The politics of AIDS can work both for and against the victims of AIDS.
Particularly conservative Christians, I was very angry that they were not involved more in the AIDS emergency.
I found out through the Internet that I have AIDS. I learned that I was dead. Where else would I find these things?
I lost relatives to AIDS, a couple of my closest cousins. I lost friends to AIDS, high-school friends who never even made it to their 21st birthdays in the '80s. When it's that close to you, you can't really deny it, and you can't run from it.
The radical right is so homophobic that they're blaming global warming on the AIDS quilt.
You look at the large problems that we face - that would be overpopulation, water shortages, global warming and AIDS, I suppose - all of that needs international cooperation to be solved.
I'm grateful for doing those drugs, because they kept me from getting laid and I would have gotten AIDS.
I believe Aids is the most important issue we face, because how we treat the poor is a reflection of who we are as a people.
I have had lots of friends who've been affected by Aids and a very good friend of mine, Oscar Moore, died of Aids and I was with him in his last year quite a bit. And of course he was a man living in a very rich culture with a wealthy family who was able to afford health care.
The trouble is it's very difficult to pin-point the most important thing because Aids affects everyone in different levels of society, differently and you have to respond to it differently.
I'm the cofounder of Keep a Child Alive. We provide medicine for families affected by HIV and AIDS in places like Africa and India.
I do not have bad days. I don't wake up in the morning and think that I'm going to get AIDS. I don't dream bad dreams about it. If I did, I'd be giving in to the negativity.
AIDS obliges people to think of sex as having, possibly, the direst consequences: suicide. Or murder.
AIDS is an absolutely tragic disease. The argument about AIDS' being some kind of divine retribution is crap.
I learned to speak first, and then to sign. I have never really known what it was like to hear, so I can't compare hearing aids to normal hearing.
AIDS is such a scary thing and it's also the kind of thing that you think won't happen to you. It can happen to you and it's deadly serious.
I go to this gym full of stunt men. There aren't any TVs or treadmills there. This is a spit-and-sawdust kind of place. It has a lot of great training aids - trampolines and bags and every weapon ever invented to do harm to a human being. If you want to know how to throw a knife, it's great.
