Pedro Julio Serrano, a prominent Puerto Rican gay-rights and HIV-awareness activist, just had a biopsy for a suspected case of oral cancer. Ironically, is an accomplished spokesperson, and someone my partner José is proud to have taught years ago.
Sadly, this article announcing his possible cancer diagnosis is teeming with comments saying (in Spanish) that he deserves it and many other homophobic slurs, including Biblical references to Sodom and Gomorrah. And they say Puerto Rico is the gay-friendliest island in the Caribbean...maybe it is, considering it's up against the likes of Jamaica.
Feel free to leave comments in English or Spanish wishing him well.
