Summary

01:35

Ian Scott - When you talk to various medical authorities.. we probably have cases incubating in this country already.. there are a lot of question marks.. legal situation.. chickens coming home to roost.. we can go to the politicians and say look at this ridiculous law.. it would be very easy to get a backlash against homosexuals

 

06:35

Bruce Burnett - I worked in San Francisco with AIDS patients.. I have been diagnosed.. STDs are implicated in the spread of AIDS.. There was an epidemic of Hep B in the US.. to date Hep B has killed more gay men in the US.. Intestinal parasites

 

10:20

Burnett - What people get AIDS.. In the first 70-cases there were many drug users, promiscuousness people.. It’s not how many partners you have but what you do with them.. safe sex ..body fluids – blood, semen.. life’s hard, life’s risky - let’s just enjoy it.. Its hard to make those changes.. It’s your responsibility.. we should not let the epidemic stop intimacy.. people are being treated like lepers

 

20:45

State of AIDS in US.. discrimination.. The law in New Zealand is an impediment .. San Francisco’s ban on sauna’s.. safe sex recommendations.. recreational drugs.. lubricants.. we need to discuss sexual practises.. body fluids.. get on with life.. condoms

 

33:00

US straight/gay joke.. anal intercourse.. rimming.. monogamous couples.. grade your sexual activity.. perhaps we look for longer term relationships.. condoms coming into pornography

 

38:20

Act as educators in the community.. businesses have paid for pamphlet – not Ministry of Health.. donation of blood for testing.. please donate – we need your support, we’re applying for funds.. the pamphlet is for wide dissemination

 

44:45

There is a theory it was in Africa, then New York.. the symptoms are listed on the pamphlet
