As well as the return of a candlelight vigil in Brisbane’s CBD, a new online series exploring the lives of people living with HIV has also just been launched.
During his headline-grabbing TV interview yesterday, Charlie Sheen said he was blackmailed by some people after he disclosed his HIV status. In fact, many people living with HIV have experienced similar negative reactions when they disclose: blackmail, threats of criminal prosecution, unwanted disclosure of HIV status, and physical violence. Paul Kidd writes.
Charlie Sheen has become the latest high-profile Hollywood celebrity to publicly confirm his HIV status since Rock Hudson in the 1980s.
