TBD Offers Accidental TMI

We found this via our lovely sister site, FishbowlDC, but it was too damn good not to share here with all of you. It concerns a teeny little minor correction to a recent TBD post titled “HIV-positive black gay men to get the Bayard Rustin Project, a District campaign against AIDS.” Serious stuff, right? Writer Amanda Hess still managed, albeit inadvertently, to make it high-larious:

Correction:

This blog post originally stated that one in three black men who have sex with me is HIV positive. In fact, the statistic applies to black men who have sex with men. Also, the photo caption incorrectly attributed Bayard Rustin’s photo to “Wikipedia Commons.” The correct title is “Wikimedia Commons.”

Glad that’s been cleared up.
