the trauma many of us continue to face in the

queer community is like an invisible war

Don't Let Your Mental Health Go Untreated.

AIDS tore through the gay community- They called men like me, 'the walking wounded'. Survivors. I'd lost nearly everyone I'd known from the early 60's to early 90's. I've since lived isolated, harmed, hurting for 4 decades.

I'd written Gerard Ilaria, head counselor of The LGBTQIATrauma Program At Weill Cornell Medicine- by that night he answered me. I've been in treatment weekly now for 3 months. I know, together, we will fix this wound stabbing me in the heart. I will in time, be a man I may recognize from before. I will be a free man.- JB, a client.
