How to Support African LGBTQ Immigrants at Risk for HIV in the U.S.

Migrants fleeing violence and persecution and seeking asylum in the U.S., and particularly LGBTQ migrants seeking asylum, come with histories of pre-migration trauma.

My research shows newly arrived Asian-born gay and bisexual men are four times more likely to become HIV positive in the four years after arriving in Australia compared to their local peers.

My life in sex: ‘I used to think HIV was a curse. Now my sex life is better than ever’

These days I try to show my dates that HIV is not a burden, but something that I’ve grown from. My viral load is undetectable, meaning I can’t infect anyone, although I’ll have to take medication for the rest of my life. Dealing with such a heavy subject with defiance, lightness and confidence is, I like to think, sexy. It also allows me to relieve people of their irrational fears of HIV.

During second year in office, Trump Administration continued discriminatory policies and practices against LGBT people and people living with HIV

Today, The Fenway Institute of Fenway Health released a policy brief demonstrating that in his second year in office, President Donald Trump continued to promote discrimination against LGBT people and people living with HIV. In some cases, these policies built upon anti-LGBT measures begun in 2017. In other cases, the Trump Administration found new ways to negatively impact U.S. citizens and federal contractors as well as the family members of LGBT foreign diplomats. His administration also engaged in practices that will increase anti-LGBT stigma and HIV stigma around the world.
