Hi my name is Gary with the tea. I do radio entertainment gossip, GOSSIP, on the Rickey Smiley Morning show and I’ve been doing radio now for 22 years. HIV is definitely a problem today because I mean it’s still spread. And a lot of people still don’t want to discuss this and talk about it. I lost a minute of friends from HIV so this is something that you know, near and dear to my heart. I decided, well you know what Gary, you need to do something. I do have a voice and I can have something to say about HIV and AIDS so what better than to do it on a radio.

“Free HIV testing so ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, come on out and get a test today!”

Regardless of the situation, you need to get you tested, it doesn’t matter whether you’re negative or positive. Life goes on, so get tested and know your status.
