Silence=Death:Speak Your Mind
During the early days of the AIDS epidemic the slogan Silence=Death became widespread. There was a recognition that the stories and struggles of homosexuals must be spoken about, must be exposed to the sunlight and the air. Silence leads to fear and ignorance and hatred and violence.
While much progress has been made since the days of Stonewall, there is still much work to be done right here in our community. We must speak to the common humanity and dignity of all people. It’s time to speak. It’s time to listen. It’s up to you.
