An unlikely hero

THE tributes made to Mike Sinclair last week were rich and well-deserved. Braving the intensive exposure and in some cases the hostility he knew would follow, Sinclair became the first Hong Kong resident to admit he was HIV-positive two years ago in this newspaper.

Territory's great loss

MIKE Sinclair would have appreciated the publicity unleashed by his death from AIDS. This was not because he attached great importance to publicity for himself - he was not seeking personal notoriety - but because he saw the value in getting his message across in sharply outlined, easy-to-understand images.

We should be told

TOM Turk's business practices, as reported in the South China Morning Post on May 5, come as no surprise to me.

Gym bills Sinclair after banning him

AIDS educator Mr Mike Sinclair has been pursued for monthly payments from the City Athletic Club even though he was barred after admitting he was HIV-positive.

Soap stars to take message to the public

ACTORS appearing in Hongkong television's popular soap operas could soon find themselves joined by an HIV character.

The Hongkong AIDS Foundation's education officer, Mr Mike Sinclair, wants TVB and ATV to introduce HIV positive characters and develop storylines with AIDS themes.

Treat this issue rationally

WE are grateful to the many members of City Athletic Club who signed our petition to Tom Turk requesting him to re-consider his decision to ban Mike Sinclair from the gym.
