JO: You support PETA, which directly opposes biomedical HIV research; you also support HIV research and advocacy groups such as Keep A Child Alive. Do you personally oppose biomedical HIV research? Should the gay community support or oppose biomedical research?
PH: You know, it wouldn’t be fair to say I support PETA—it’d be fair to say I support some of the things they say, but at the same time, fuck—I eat meat and own some leather shoes. I don’t wear fur, though. You know, I’m a human being, and human beings are walking contradictions! I think we should explore all avenues for finding a cure for HIV and AIDS—and all diseases! Like stem cell research—I’m all for it!
