We've come a long way, but not nearly far enough if people are still contracting and dying from this disease. 

I can't help but wonder if sex and sexual orientation didn't carry the stigmatism that they do, if it would be easier to educate people? I think that books, films, and television shows that break boundaries and show the public that sex isn't dirty and that orientation is just the way it is -- has and will continue to be -- that we might be able to change the world  and end this epidemic.
