SORT BY Relevancy
This week, I'd like to talk about sex, and how the topic of sex isnt being discussed as broadly as some might hope. I'm talking about the disabled.
All too often, when the topic of sex, relationships, etc comes up, people often don't bring up people who are disabled, and disabled in many ways.
We need to broaden the discussion, and include as many people as possible, and not just assume that one or more portions of our population, can't
have, isn't interested or doesn't think about sex. We need to change this type of ignorant behavior and start including everyone in the discussion.
So let's enhance the discussion. This week. "On-Air".
The show today will be about PrEP and I really want many of you to take part in this discussion. Join us to bring awareness to the community. Historically, the HIV/AIDS epidemic has affected more men than women. However, if new HIV infections continue at their current rate worldwide, women with HIV may soon outnumber men with HIV. HIV infection impacts a growing number of women in Illinois each year. Nearly 7,000 women in Illinois are currently known to be living with HIV and/or AIDS. Many hundreds of other women are probably living with HIV even though they are unaware of their own infection. HIV/AIDS disproportionately impacts African-American women in Illinois and the United States. Nationally, HIV infection is the leading cause of death for African-American women between the ages of 25 and 34. In Illinois, the number of HIV cases among African-American women continues to climb. Roughly 68 percent of Illinois women living with HIV are African American, while African Americans only make up 15 percent of the Illinois population. Caucasian women account for 16 percent of Illinois women living with HIV, while the Caucasian population represents more than 73 percent of Illinois residents. Latina women represent roughly 11 percent of the HIV/AIDS cases in women, while 13 percent of the Illinois population is Latino. Roughly 4 percent of women with HIV are from Native American, Asian, Pacific Islander and other communities. Women in their 30s are the most likely to be living with HIV/AIDS, and almost all Illinois women living with HIV are between the ages of 20 and 50.
Jeremy Jones, also known as JC DaSINsation was born with promise. Although he was plagued by typical adversity endured by many bi-products of ‘single parent’ households, he faced the odds, confronted the odds, and eventually triumphed over the odds. One of two children born into chaos and less fortunate, poverty stricken circumstances he was submerged into a life of adversity and hardship. Often, he and his older sister were left unattended for days at a time, lacking the essential elements of survival and nourishment. Although his roots are traced back to Petersburg, Virginia where his mother pushed him into this world on the living room of his aunt’s home; shortly thereafter, they relocated to Atlanta, Georgia to reside with his maternal grandparents. In 1986, a year after arriving, his mother was found deceased in the West End district from an apparent drug overdose. With losing his mother to death and his father serving consecutive life sentences, he was left to discover his own identity and sift through life’s tumultuous journey on a quest for self-discovery. Along the way he encountered the good, the bad, and the very ugly aspects of growing up without a mother, a father or an encouraging family structure. During this time the only viable outlet he had was music. Gangster Rap along with Rhythm and Blues(R&B) were his surrogate parents. From NWA to Anita Baker, he absorbed both ends of the spectrum. While being an avid fan of the culture practically his entire life, only in recent years has he began to pursue his passion for music and its creative process. Continuing to perfect and hone his craft, he also has thespian ambitions. Determined to become an admirable human being he remains humbled with humility. Seeking to enlighten, educate and entertain, Jc DaSINsation maintains a full load juggling music, acting, family as well as ensuring a stable environment is kept.
