Freddie Mercury

Freddie didn' t announce publicly that he had AIDS
until the day before he died in 1991. Although he was
flamboyant electric front man on par with
Bowie and Jaggerjax was an Intensely private man
offstage. But Freddie told me he had AIDS soon after he
was diagnosed in 1937. I was devastated. Pd seen what
the disease had done to so many of my other friends. I
knew exactly what it was going to do to Freddie. As did
he. He knew death, agonizing death, was coming. But
Freddie was incredibly courageous. He kept up
appearances, he kept Queen, and he
kept being the funny, outrageous, and profoundly
generous person he had always been.
As Freddie deteriorated in the late and early
it was almost too much to bear. It broke my heart to
see this absolute light unto the world ravaged by AIDS.
By the end, his body was covered with Kaposi' s sarcoma
lesions. He was almost blind. He was too weak to even
stand.
By all rights, Freddie should have spent those final
days concerned only with his own comfort. But that
wasn' t who he was. He truly lived for others. Freddie had
passed on November 24, 1991, and weeks after the
funeral, I was still grieving. On Christmas Day, 1 learned
that Freddie had left me one final testament to his
selflessness. I was moping about when a friend showed
up at my door and handed me something wrapped in a
pillowcase. I opened it up, and inside was a painting by
one of my favorite artists, the British painter
Tuke. And there was a note from Freddie, Years before,
Freddie andi had developed pet names for each other,
our dramaqueen alter egos. I was Sharon, and he was
Melina. Freddie' s note read, "Dear Sharon, thought
youll like this. Love, Melina. Happy Christmas."
I was overcome, forty- four years old at the time,
crying like a child. Here was this beautiful man, dying
from AIDS, and in his final days, he had somehow
managed to find me a lovely Christmas present. As sad as
that moment was, it' s often the one I think about when I
remember Freddie, because it captures the character of
the man. In death, he reminded me ehwhat made him so
special in life. "

This is really touching and everything but he completely brought this on himself...he chose the lifestyle, no one made him have unprotected sex with men.

"Love is the cure"

If you love Freddie Mercury, pick him up.
Because if you don't pick him up, he dies
but he continues to be what you love,
and it hurts.
So if you love Freddie Mercury,
don't let him die.
Love is the cure

but gay sex doesn't make you more susceptible to hiv right? right?
User avatar #383 to #366 - neoexdeath ONLINE (06/14/2013) [-]
Right, back then, the gay community got hit hard with it. Why? Well, if you can't get pregnant, there's less reason to use a condom. So it spread like wildfire since nobody knew what the deal was with it back then.

Person A has AIDS and Person B does not. Person A will be Male and Person B will be Female(it does not matter whether you are gay or straight. It is about protection and the type of sex[anal, oral, or 						*******					] that you engage in.)   
   
If they have unprotected anal sex, then Person B has a 25% chance of catching AIDS.    
   
If they have unprotected 						*******					 sex, then Person B has a 0.2% chance of catching AIDS.    
   
There reason for this is that you can only contract AIDS from blood to blood contact(Semen counts if you are infected, but 						*******					 fluid only counts when you are infected). Anal sex, even if performed gently, often leads to anal fissures which bleed. If Person A ejaculates into Person B anally and they have an anal fissure(which sometimes you may not even feel), they have a high chance of getting infected. If A & B have 						*******					 sex and there are no tears in the 						*******					 walls, it is highly unlikely that B will contract AIDS.    
   
The reason that many perpetuate the ridiculous idea that homosexuals are the only ones spreading AIDS is because gay men exclusively have anal sex.  Heterosexual people spread AIDS as well both 						*********					 and anally, it's just not as common.   
   
In fact, the first person to contact AIDS was a female flight attendant who had a layover in Africa. She slept with a man who had intercourse with an animal and contracted the disease that way. She then returned to North America and spread it to her other partners, some of whom were bisexual and that's how it entered the gay community. It spread faster there due to the fact that they exclusively had unprotected anal sex(STIs/STDs were not common before the late 70's and early 80's so condom were only used for pregnancy).

Any kind of unprotected sex makes you more susceptible
User avatar #371 to #368 - fpsnoob (06/14/2013) [-]
Unprotected anal sex the most, that's why it's more prominent in homosexual males.

Roughly 10% of the population is thought to be gay, that's including ******** , logically the most prominent cases of HIV through anal sex has to be Straight males.

Truly beautiful. I'm not pro or anti gay, but I support any human being that shows true selflessness like this. I wish I was as good of a person as Freddie Mercury. That is my goal in life, to be a truly good person like he was.

he in turn had sex with other men and gave them aids
User avatar #384 to #334 - neoexdeath ONLINE (06/14/2013) [-]
Well of course that happened, nobody in 1987 would of thought chills and feeling weak was the beginning symptoms of a new Superdisease. They'd of thought " **** , I need to get some Orange Juice and some rest."
#337 to #334 - skatin (06/14/2013) [-]
That may be, but why ruin the message? What is the benefit of ruining something people should take to heart? There is none. You are taking something that could, if even, minutely help make the world a better place.
#344 to #337 - anonymous (06/14/2013) [-]
the message that he ruined the lives of others by making them go through the pain he had to?
