    “Twenty years ago, a young gay physician dying of AIDS captured the attention of Canadians with his candour as he shared the last years of his life and sought to reduce the fear and stigma surrounding AIDS.

    Through the 111 weekly CBC-TV episodes of the Dr Peter Diaries, aired from 1990 to 1992, Dr Peter Jepson-Young became a household name, putting a human face to the pandemic when homophobia and discrimination surrounding HIV/AIDS were rampant.” http://www.xtra.ca/public/Vancouver/Dr_Peter_20_years_later-12807.aspx

    Thanks for letting me know about Dr. Peter. I’ll be sure to have a writeup about him when his birthday comes around in June.
