Don from some place in Gulf Province worked with Igat Hope, an association that was started by those living with the HIV virus. He recently passed on.

He was always the gentleman he was, though with his sexuality, he and others were on the forefront of the war of words including stigma and discrimination that their activities along with sex workers were fuelling along the rise in HIV and AIDS.

His perseverance to see a good outcome for PLHIV's has had many success stories in other areas.

I spent a year practising HIV law as a Community Legal Education officer with the PNG Development Law Association, an alumni of international Development Law Organisation and got to know him very well and this is my tribute to him.

Er, I think we need a bit of explanation here.

It's an interesting poem, well written too.

Who was Don? Excuse my ignorance.

I think I know what it is about but a bit of background would be good.

We all have no control over our children being born an albino. If they are born albino, we cannot manipulate the DNA to change the colour of the skin to a colour we want.

The same rule applies to the those in LGBT sexuality. May Don rest in peace.
