It was Rock Hudson’s death that ultimately galvanized Hollywood and Elizabeth Taylor in particular to put a spotlight on the AIDS epidemic. I shudder to think how much longer it would’ve gone unchecked without such a famous and “masculine” person succumbing to the virus.

President Reagan’s lack of sympathy and homophobic policies hardened my heart even though I was still in the closet and made me realize, the party of Reagan could never be my party. Though it pains me to say it, I hope Reagan is still burning in hell for what he did – or to be more precise, what he didn’t do.

Above is a photo of Rock at the prime of his life with his lover, Lee Garlington.

  1. And no matter what this administration says to the contrary, it has no intention of finding a cure for AIDS. I hope Reagan’s “room in hell” has room for several more occupants!
