Banner drop! Stop criminalizing people living with HIV!

Activists drop banner with message to Ontario Premier
during Toronto Pride parade

TORONTO, July 3, 2016 —This afternoon, as the Ontario Premier marched in the country’s largest Pride parade, AIDS ACTION NOW! ( dropped a huge banner overlooking Yonge Street, calling on Kathleen Wynne to “stop criminalizing people with HIV.”

Ontario continues to lead Canadian provinces in charges against people living with HIV for not disclosing their status, even when they have taken precautions to protect their partners, when there is little to no risk of transmission, and when no transmission has taken place. People are being prosecuted for aggravated sexual assault, one of the most serious charges under the Criminal Code. Conviction carries a maximum penalty of life imprisonment and a mandatory designation as a sex offender for a minimum of 20 years. Analysis of prosecutions shows a disproportionate number of charges against racialized people and a growing number against vulnerable women.

Overly broad criminalization is not only unjust, it also undermines public health. Fear of being criminalized discourages people from testing for HIV or seeking counselling. Fear of prosecution also makes it more difficult for people to disclose their status. This can contribute to the spread of HIV. Two years ago, nearly 80 of Canada’s leading HIV scientists issued a ground-breaking consensus statement reviewing the scientific evidence about HIV transmission risk and expressing their concern about the increasing divergence between that science and the overly broad use of the criminal law.

In 2010, Ontario’s then-Attorney General Chris Bentley committed to developing guidelines to limit such prosecutions. Six years later, his Ministry still refuses to develop guidelines to this effect. Meanwhile, Crown attorneys in Ontario continue to pursue such cases and even seek to expand the circumstances in which people can be convicted. This is not in the public interest.

We call on Premier Wynne to intervene. Her Attorney General must instruct Crown attorneys to respect scientific evidence about HIV transmission and stop unnecessary, unjust prosecutions which undermine public health efforts to control the spread of HIV.

    this impromptu BJ was filmed directly after the previous clip, Web Cam Fucking. the camera was right there, so it got turned on while i gave a delicious, sexy, real, toe-curling blow job. the load gets busted in my mouth, then i play with the cum and gargle with it.
    My first time cumming with my glass wand! It’s got a nice curve to it, but it takes some getting used to. I tease myself with my fingers, then with the wand, until I use it with my blue vibrator on my clit to finish myself off. Maybe soon I’ll work up the courage to use the bigger side…! As an added bonus, I forgot to take my glasses off when I made this video lol. 🙂

    I wake up in a small room not knowing what happened or where I am only to find that I’m being watched by you. You leave a dildo and a note demanding me to do obscene things to pleasure your cock. You make me use my feet and wiggle my toes while I suck on the dildo to please you. Ul;timately leading in you blowing your load all over my toes
    Stripping out of a little black dress and masturbating with toys, pillow humping, etc 😉
    I tie myself a pentagram harness and show off some of my favourite pink toys including my plug, gag, and rabbit

    I try lots of different positions while pounding my wet pussy with my glass dildo! 🙂 heheMy pussy was naturally so wet during this whole video. You can definitely hear it! However, I had to try to stay quiet because I wasn’t alone ;)I had so much fun 🙂 xoxo
    Dakota comes in her room to catch you sniffing her dirty panties.. She’s not surprised though, she’s known for sometime that you’ve had a crush on her. By the way you look at her when she bends over, and always come around when she’s home.. so to punish you for sneaking in her room, she is going to give you the real thing and sit on your face! Hope you can hold your breath!!

    Watching me as I text and tweet and basically ignore you like a loser deserves. You can hear me mumbling some things and you can see me typing and clicking but i’ll never look at you and i’ll certainly never let you take precedence over things that are really important.
    Watch me struggle to get myself free from under the bed where I get stuck suddenly. You`ll get a nice upskirt view to my white panties, my beautiful legs…and at the end of the video..of my horny cunt!

    You cant STAND paying the price when I apply pressure & challenge your manhood. As if I ever cared. You one day hope I could get past my narcissism and perhaps see you as a qualified stud that would rescue me from my sadistic greedy demands. You want to be my King and let the other boys be drained instead. You are nothing more than a pathetic microscopic lent ball LOL. You are continually wrapped around my everlasting power for control and domination. Just shut up and splurge to my lifestyle of luxury because you are old and lonely and I am GOD
    This sexy schoolgirl has just got home from school and started her daily ritual of stripping off and masturbating with her favourite vibrator while watching porn on her phone. Little does she know, you set up a hidden camera in her bedroom last night so that you could watch her. She orgasms several times in just a few minutes, moaning with pleasure every time, her pussy pulsating with post-orgasm contractions. When she’s done, she sighs and nearly falls asleep, comfortable in the idea that she’s completely alone, no idea you’ve been watching the whole time
    Some people on cam like to tip me live to stare into the camera. With no makeup creases to worry about this morning I thought I’d shoot a bare stare video. No makeup, some fuckey hair, you and I. This is a silent 5 minute clip where I just lock eyes with you and stare into the camera.

    Stockings, satin merry-widow, lace trimmed slip and heels: I love it all! Get your lingerie fetish fulfilled with me, watch and stroke or join in in your secret favorite outfit. If you do that I’d love to hear what you chose to wear, message me
