"Then their son came to us. He told us his story. We listened. We explained that his parents weren't evil. Just ignorant. Overwhelmed by fear. That's why London Lighthouse provides infomration, care and support for anyone affected by HIV and AIDS. In fact, his parents are now talking to us. Which is a start. Straight or gay. Old or young. White or black. Him or her. AIDS doesn't care. We do. We need you to as well."
