Michael Burtch - The Tattooed Activist
Michael Burtch is a Taurus, and as such, is opinionated, self-indulgent, argumentative, bull headed, modest and extremely good looking. He put that trait to use in January of 2010, becoming one of the first openly HIV+ Fab Boys in the Toronto Magazine’s 16 odd year history. His handsome mug has appeared all over the blogosphere as well, including Macleans.ca. His fundraising and grassroots activism has landed him multiple times in newspapers such as 24 Hours and Capital Xtra.
t was actually in the pages of the community newsletter The Blackburn Banner that Michael’s poor Mother first learned her son was positive. She had to read it, along with 4000 other people, in black and white one morning over her bacon and eggs. Shamefully, Michael will go to great lengths to avoid confrontation, twice breaking up with boyfriends by text and e-mail. He is also a ‘star fish’ in bed (he just lays there) but being so handsome, the tattooed hunk has never needed to be particularly good in bed. Michael’s life ambition is to learn how to play the guitar
