Reading is the one thing that the pain of my life could never take away from me. And even today, living with AIDS, books continue to be the safest place for me.It’s the one thing that belongs to me that AIDS cannot take away from me.I spent hours in my bedroom sequestered with the door closed reading the classics from the Harlem Renaissance, Hughes, Larsen, Hurston, Wright and Baldwin. The fiction of this period was powerful and empowering all at the same time.It gave me purpose for my own life and the courage to fight the good fight and never surrender.So based on these tabloid reports that Usher has herpes, other alleged sexual partners of Ushers have come forward, two women and one man in a lawsuit handled by Lisa Bloom.While one of the persons in the suit is named "Jane Doe" and one "John Doe," one person Quantasia Sharpton, also named in the suit held a press conference with Lisa Bloom, the attorney of record.It gave me purpose for my own life and the courage to fight the good fight and never surrender. Something intoxicating about the smell of the book and the story it brings to life.Reading brings me joy, and these days with my health in the balance, I find solace in my books.

Let me say right off the bat, according to a California law, it is against the law for a person with a sexually transmitted disease (STD) to have sex and not disclosure that information to their sexual partner prior to the sexual encounter.
(And there lays the biggest problem for me; the criminalization of a medical condition.) Whether the STD is Herpes or HIV, the law requires disclosure.
I was homeless so she and her husband agreed to let me come live with them.
