Charlie Sheen sat down with Matt Lauer on NBC’s Today Show to reveal his HIV-positive status. The interview had been billed as a “revealing personal announcement,” and sites like the Daily Mail and TMZ were reporting that it would be about his HIV status.

Last week, several news outlets began running salacious headlines about a Hollywood A-lister who has been trying to keep his HIV status a secret for years. Several prominent HIV-activists have criticized the reporting as fear-mongering and stigma-fueled rhetoric that is often become standard for mainstream HIV reporting.

I watched the Interview and have to admit that I liked it. Matt’s questions were on point, they even invited Charlie’s doctor to talk about transmission and the virus itself. Even though Charlie was obviously stressed about revealing his status, I feel that it was done properly. This interview will certainly educate people on how transmission is done and it’s a good thing they decided to invite his doctor to talk about it. I hope that it will also warn people on dangers to mix unprotected sex and drugs.

Watch a part of the interview below and let me know your thoughts!

News : Paris, Beirut, Baghdad, Humanity…

I put up a Paris selfie yesterday with a simple message of sending love to those in Paris and Beirut. I later removed it because of all the judgmental posts regarding slacktivism, the ignorance of Facebook not recognizing other tragedies and the media selectively covering Paris. Then I’ve thought about it a little more. What’s not being told is just as telling as what is. There are constant wedges trying to divide and segregate us from one another. But why? Governments only addressing France, Facebook only offering the France flag overlay and the media focusing on Paris are all statements that divide us. I also can’t help but observe how these messages align with and feed the industry of war.

We are all disturbed by the news from ‪‎Paris‬. I understand Paris is a beloved and familiar space for a lot of people, but it troubled me that ‪Beirut‬, had received so little attention after the horrific bombings two days earlier. It also troubled me that ‪Baghdad‬ received even less attention after the senseless bombing that took place there last week. Worst of all, I found the understanding of the refugee crisis skewed and simplistic. If you’ve been following the journeys of the people leaving their homes around the world right now, perhaps you’ll understand why the words ‪#‎SyrianRefugeeCrisis‬ are just as devastating as ‪#‎PrayForParis‬. It’s time to pray for humanity. It is time to make all places beloved. It’s time to pray for the world.

It’s too easy to hate. Its too easy to point the finger. It’s time to learn how to love. It’s time to create new messages that unite instead of listening to the messages that divide us. Peace!

During last night’s X Factor, everyone’s TV screen went dark and then…this amazing snippet from what will be Adele’s first single: “Hello, It’s me. I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet? To go over everything. They say that time’s supposed to heal ya, but I ain’t done much healing…”

To be honest that was incredible! Nothing on screen said her name, but how can you mistake that voice?

Check out the snippet below!

I was so moved by that song snippet that I decided to record my own little version and I posted it on my Instagram, check it out if you want.

And let me know how you like Adele’s new song!

Last week The View’s Candace Cameron Bure (formerly of Full House) and Raven-Symoné (once of The Cosby Show) sat down with former Who’s The Boss? child star Danny Pintauro, who recently opened up to Oprah Winfrey about his HIV-positive status. The interview was cringeworthy from beginning to end. Whether it was Symoné’s assertion that there are “different ways to catch AIDS” or Bure’s decision to ask Danny if he takes “responsibility for his promiscuous behavior or even Danny’s relatively new role as an HIV-positive advocate, the interview was a train wreck.

The truth is, almost every single question that Danny was asked served as an example of what not to ask a person who just revealed their HIV-positive status. And in the hope that Bure and Symoné can pinch off five minutes from watching reruns of their glory days to read this, let’s correct their horrendous line of inquiries, piece by piece.

Frito-Lay is so gay! Yes, with Rainbows, a new limited-edition flavor inspired by the pride flag. Doritos Rainbows are a version of its Cool Ranch-flavored tortilla chips to show the chipmaker’s support of the LGBT community.

Rainbows is intended to bring “an entirely new product experience to our consumers to show our commitment toward equal rights for the LGBT community and celebrate humanity without exception.”

You won’t find these fun snacks in stores — you can only snag a bag of Doritos Rainbows if you donate $10 or more to the It Gets Better Project while supplies last.
