Regarding "A Howl of Anger" (Nov. 27): There are those in the AIDS arena who agree with many of Elinor Burkett's concerns and conclusions. It's no wonder she doesn't know of us. The pressure from "AIDS Inc." to silence us is shocking. We are "rebels" who see that the rate of new infection and other data mean that the status quo in education, prevention and testing is not working. For our efforts to deal with an epidemic that has far different ramifications as it moves steadily into the heterosexual world, we have been attacked by a number of "AIDS Inc."

Weeks before the new Out of the Closet Thrift Store opened in North Hollywood, the donations were rolling in.

Despite the presence of 300 sometimes angry protesters, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday refused to bail out the San Fernando Valley's largest AIDS clinic, and instead chastised the foundation that runs the clinic for alleged fiscal mismanagement. The nonprofit AIDS Healthcare Foundation, one of the county's largest AIDS service providers, came to the supervisors seeking $1.2 million to keep its Sherman Oaks facility open.

An AIDS-care organization warned Thursday of an "alarming" rise in the rate of HIV infection in some segments of Los Angeles County's poor populations, but county health officials dismissed the group's statement as a misinterpretation of research figures. The president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation said that results from the county's random HIV testing program suggested that AIDS may be about to explode among the poor in much the same way it did with gay men a decade ago.

Federal officials are investigating whether a clinic that tests adult film performers for sexually transmitted diseases violated their privacy by requiring them to sign overly broad disclosure agreements. Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation, a San Fernando-based clinic, is being investigated by the regional civil rights office of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in San Francisco, according to a federal spokesman. The investigation was prompted by a complaint by AIDS Healthcare Foundation, a Los Angeles-based group that has advocated for condom use and increased testing among porn performers.
