who came out as HIV-positive in 2018, is doing so in order to educate the public about the harm inflicted by bias against those with the virus."HIV is not killing people but stigma is and this is what needs to change," Schmid said in a statement. "We need to talk more about HIV and its advancements, about what U=U means, and we should not be stigmatized by society.""We need to have more information on mainstream media about how you contract HIV, prevention and treatments available so that people stop stigmatizing those that are positive and realize that anyone can have HIV and live a completely normal and healthy life."Due to medical advancements, HIV is no longer a death sentence.
