The Trouble with Spikol
How I spent my lunch hour:
This is a vintage moment in ACTUP history housing for people with the virus is not only an important step in raising the quality of life for people it supports our well-being mental physical spiritual and environment, shelters and cafe’s are unable to facilitate an HIV+ population during my stay in the shelters I fought with protecting aninimity from other residence up until I cought scarlet fever you see the cots are positioned a meer few inches apart and me with a compromise immune system well if someone coughs without covering, even telephones are a risk not too mention the meals are high in colesterol and people with the virus most medications raise colesterol I remember being served alot of bread pasta potatos all this makes for a risky stay. The ventilation was most times poor during certain times the air is on if it works and with sweats you can become ill. When lived on the streets I could not find a place to sleep because police would come and make you move or you face the threat of being arrested. I am HIV+ when mayor nutter ran for his office I registered many people from the shelter system to vote
I am so sorry I could not have been there because of another obligation It hurt me not to be in attendance.
Thank you for taking time out of your day for great coverage on AIDS Housing. It is such a great shortage in Philadelphia for people living with HIV/AIDS and will help the quality of Life if the City helped in funding for more Housing.
