DON’T LET THE FEAR OF AIDS DRIVE YOU OUT OF CONTROL.
AIDS has taken more than lives from the gay community.
In the panic of the past few years some of us have lost hope, and with it our sense of self-control.
But it doesn’t need to be this way. Safe sex allows most gay men to play safely, free of fear and guilt. And that builds self-respect and self-control.
Then study the Sexual Safety card below. Learn what’s safe and unsafe.
And call the AIDS Hotline: 587-4999, 8a.m. to 5p.m., weekdays. The more you know, the safer you’ll be.
Then after you’ve learned about safe sex, learn to talk about it. Try wearing the Safety Pin to quietly say that you play safely. You’ll find Safety Pins free in most of your favorite bars and baths, or you can send a note with a stamped self-addressed envelope to: The Northwest AIDS Foundation, 818 East Pike, Seattle, WA 98122.
So stay in the driver’s seat, and stay in control.
Follow the new rules of the road.
