British Member Of Parliament Reveals He Is HIV Positive

By HandPicked 4You November 29, 2018

Lloyd Russell-Moyle, a member of the British Labour Party, announced that he is HIV positive, making him only the second parliamentarian to ever do so.

 

The MP for Brighton Kemptown since the 2017 election, Russell-Moyle told the Commons he has been HIV positive for 10 years, since age 22.

 

His announcement comes just a few days before World Aids Day, which is no coincidence. Russell-Moyle said he wants to tackle the stigma still associated with HIV.

 

He said: “I have been on world-class treatment provided by the NHS – so I have not only survived, I’ve prospered, and any partner I have is safe and protected.”

 

Go Lloyd!
