In 2020 Human Immunodeficiency Virus, aka HIV, is still a common medical condition in the gay and LGBTQ communities. As is Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, also known as AIDS. Their impact has changed from what it was 20 or more years ago when the life expectancy of a victim was only a few years from diagnosis to death. Treatment options have shifted, patients are living longer, people at risk, and anyone who has ever had unprotected sex, is at risk as you cannot tell by looking at them if they have it or not. People are also behaving more responsibly sexually. In recent years a growing trend has been to have HIV cases be misdiagnosed or totally overlooked by the medical provider. Also, medications such as Truvada have been showing great promise as a prophylactic. However, it is also a very dangerous medication that carries with it great health risks. In terms of employment law discrimination against a member of the LGBTQ community and or discrimination against someone who is HIV positive has risen over the last several decades. If you are a member of the gay community or LGBTQ community and have been wronged or injured based on your sexual preference or HIV/AIDS status you have rights and they need to be protected.
