Repeal HIV Discrimination Act

Queerty reported that, "ACT UP is joining local activist group Queerocracy to raise awareness about HIV transmission laws, which criminalize not disclosing one's HIV+ status before engaging in sex."

"The laws, in effect in 34 states and two U.S. territories, have been used to imprison people who used condoms, had undetectable viral loads and didn't actually transmit the virus—based solely on the allegation they didn't tell their partner they were positive," the Queerty report added.

Call to action : Call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand : ask her to lead the charge to end HIV discrimination : (202)-224-4451.
