16. That must be from an early or mid 1980s demonstration.

Things were very desperate then in the gay community, when only a few million dollars per year were being spent on research. One angry speaker voices such a threat, the fundies latch onto it and still talk about it 20 years later.

Of course, anyone who might be at risk for having HIV shouldn't give blood -- the tests for HIV are not 100% accurate. (They are very accurate, but if you've been tested too soon after infection, the test might be negative. I gather you're supposed to wait 3 months.)
